What does your organization do?

We provide civil, structural and electrical engineering services along with land surveying services and advanced measurements and modeling to our municipal/public works, commercial and industrial clients. We have had the great privilege to work for a very diverse group of clients over our 56-year history.

What are some advantages of being located/doing business in the Capital Region?

Doing business in the Capital Region, we’re at the heart of the action for our state and regional clients. It also provides us an opportunity to be involved in key legislative issues that affect not only our business, but our employees’ quality of life.

Why did you decide to invest in BRAC?

BRAC is simply a great investment. The team at BRAC along with the volunteers help to develop and set good business policy for our state and region.

What would you say to companies contemplating joining BRAC?

It’s absolutely the best investment you can make for your business. Where else can you have a team of folks from across the region working for your business and your employees’ interests?

What do you anticipate for your company in the next five years? For the Capital Region?

We anticipate steady growth for Forte and Tablada over the next five years. For the Capital Region, I believe over the next five years we could continue to see steady growth if the state and our local government are careful to not put anti-business rules and regulations in place.
