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 Thomsen. Bob 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.
