About Us

our story

Thompson Engineering was formed in 1953 to provide quality assurance for construction projects related to industrial, infrastructure, and community development. As a drilling, materials testing, and construction inspection and chemistry laboratory firm, we supported the engineering and construction industry. Our early years were building blocks that allowed us to get our feet wet–literally –performing services along the Gulf Coast’s rivers, bayous, and streams.

 

Today, Thompson Engineering is known for leadership on projects defining skylines, coastlines, and transportation lines. We support clients in the industrial, commercial, transportation, federal, and municipal markets. We are often the first company on project sites conducting environmental assessments, land surveys, and geotechnical studies. And our project management and construction management services often mean we are the last ones to leave. We are a proven leader in the planning, design, and construction of major transportation, economic development, and waterfront projects across the Southeast.

safety

We hold ourselves to the highest standards of health, safety, and environmental safety excellence. Through our Next Level safety initiative, we affirm to our employees and customers that we will never stop improving our safety practices through knowledge gained, continuing education, and advances in technology and engineering. We will always look for ways to take our safety program to the next level to make lives safer and healthier.

corporate & community responsibility

The bottom line isn’t just about profit. It’s about people and the planet, too. Our approach to corporate and community responsibility isn’t complicated, but it is meaningful. Corporately, we aim to make the cities, towns, and neighborhoods where we live and work better through our services and coordinated efforts focused on sustainability. In the community, we encourage our employee-owners to volunteer, and we follow up on that investment of time and care with funding from the Thompson Foundation.
