Austin has been a target market for Manhard, and after careful analysis, the opportunity to bring the right associates onto the team, and given the region’s growth, it made sense to establish a presence there.
In addition to Conrad as Manager, new Manhard team members based in Austin include Adam Burke, PE, Project Manager and Associate Principal; Casey Giles, PE, Senior Project Manager and Associate Principal; and John Lewis, who will manage projects and work on business development.
“These leaders support the growth in the Austin area, and the office complements our existing presence in Texas,” said Don Manhard, Jr., President and CEO. “This move aligns with our steady approach to growth, and to better serve our clients across the region. Austin is a perfect fit — a diverse and expanding market, a great opportunity to grow, and it aligns well with our national strategy.”
Recent Texas projects the firm has had a role in include:
- Sierra Vista in Iowa Colony, Texas - engineering and surveying services for development of 900-acre, 1,800-lot master-planned community
- Sapphire Bay in Rowlett, Texas - civil engineering, land planning, surveying, entitlement, and construction administration services for a 117-acre, $1-billion mixed-use development
- Valley View - DFW Commerce Park in Dallas, Texas - civil engineering for onsite and offsite improvements for a three-building industrial park totaling approximately 1.6 million square feet on 120 acres.
“Given the explosive growth in that market, and the top-tier talent we’ve recruited to build our foundation locally, we’re excited at the potential for us here, and beyond, for our newest office and future Texas opportunities,” Conrad said.
Manhard Consulting’s new Austin team members are located at 2101 E. St. Elmo, Building 1, Suite 100, Austin. The firm has had a Texas presence for five years, and the new location will work closely with Manhard’s existing office in Dallas, and its other offices across the country.
