|About Us: History|
|GEM Engineering, Inc. (GEM) was founded in 2000 by six exceptional professionals who shared a vision for creating a new engineering consulting firm. The diverse background of the founding members, together with their cumulative century of practice in the fields of geotechnical, environmental and construction materials services, brought together the knowledge, capabilities and clients that allowed GEM to rapidly rise to a leading position among the regional consulting engineering firms. Work during the first year on major projects such as the Hardin County Landfill, the Owensboro Airport, North American Stainless, the Kentucky Fair and Exposition South Wing Expansion, and the Frazier International History Museum, provided the foundation for growth and stability that continues today. GEM’s success has been driven by the personal interest we have in each project and the dedication we show to providing our clients with sound technical solutions and practical methods for implementation in the real world.
GEM remains entirely employee owned. Employees who are driven to serve our clients and achieve high technical standards have been extended an opportunity to become owners and help build the future of our firm.
By the end of our 17th year, GEM will have completed over 5,000 projects involving geotechnical issues from landslides to heaving shales, environmental issues from asbestos to underground storage tanks, and materials issues from field compaction testing of soil fill to laboratory testing of ferruginous concrete block.
The future at GEM is bright with expanding services, a growing staff of technical experts, an enjoyable and challenging work atmosphere, and mutually beneficial relationships with our valued clients.
