OLATHE, Kan. – Terracon is pleased to announce it has acquired TAM Consultants, Inc. (TAM). Based in Williamsburg, Va.,TAM serves public- and private-sector clients with a full range of facilities engineering and design services.

Founded in 2002, TAM is a 15-person professional services firm with offices in Newport News, Williamsburg and Richmond, Va. TAM’s professional services include structural engineering, building enclosure consulting, property condition assessments, forensic and investigative engineering, roof consulting, project management, and a variety of building testing services.

“TAM and Terracon share a commitment to not only outstanding technical expertise, but exceptional client service based on enduring relationships,” said Gayle Packer, Terracon president and CEO. “We’re excited to enhance our facilities services throughout Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region at a time when extending the service life and efficiency of existing buildings is top of mind for many of our clients.”

All TAM employees will immediately become part of Terracon, supporting clients from its three Virginia locations. The firm will continue to operate locally as TAM Consultants, Inc., A Terracon Company, and the transition will be seamless for clients.

The new acquisition is supported by Terracon’s existing offices in Virginia, North Carolina, the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, and others. TAM joins two other recent Terracon acquisitions: Skelly and Loy of Harrisburg, Pa., in 2020 and GeoConcepts of Ashburn, Va., in 2017.
