GES Celebrates 20 Years!

0 Comment

It hardly seems possibly that what began in 1992 with a young man, a pick-up truck, and a pocket-full of ideas and dreams, evolved into a successful engineering firm that continues to go strong 20 years later.

Reflecting back on the past 20 years, there have been many highs and lows.  I would have to say two of GES’ biggest accomplishments thus far has been building the staff that make up our “GES Family” and the allegiance of our loyal clients.

Our GES team has been through wins and losses together as a team.  Each day we continue to work together toward the same goal: building value, it’s personal, and high performance.  GES is proud to have honest, hard-working, and  innovative staff that make up the GES team.  Many of our clients have been with GES since its inception, and at least 90 % of our current clients are repeat.

Some significant “GES” events over the past 20 years:

1992   GES opens its doors on Westcliff and Buffalo with 2 staff members.  First client is American West Homes; second client is Pulte Homes.  Both are still steady clients today.

1994   GES moves to new office on West Sahara.  GES shared this office with ESI/VPoint

1995   GES hires staff member number 32, Bob ThomsenBob began at GES as Field Supervisor.  Today, Bob is still with GES as a professional engineer.

1997   GES selected by Clark County Sanitation District to provide all Geotechnical Design services for upcoming 10 year Central Plant Expansion.

1998   Eagle Drilling Services, LLC, GES’ sister drilling company, is born

2001   GES moves into the current location at 7150 Placid Street

2004   GES receives Best Place to Work award and lands on the cover of the Nevada Business Journal. This is the first of several local, state and national awards every year since

2005   GES is awarded geotechnical and materials testing services for Pulte Homes’ 2,000 acre master-planned community “Anthem Mesquite”.  This prompts GES to open a Mesquite office.

2006   The GES has family has grown with a staff of 48.

2007   GES secures the contract for Geotechnical Design Services for SNWA’s Clark, Lincoln, White Pines Counties Groundwater Main Pipeline that is slated to run from northern Nevada to Southern Nevada

2009   GES and Eagle Drilling add Ground Source Heat Exchange to their list of capabilities

2011   GES is once again named the #1 Best Place to Work by Southern Nevada Human Resources Association.

I would like to thank our staff, our clients, and all involved that have played a roll in the success of GES.
