Our Story

50th Final

We’re an engineering and environmental firm with skilled professionals driven by passion and challenged to find solutions to make our clients’ lives easier and their communities better.

It started 50 years ago in 1973 with an alliance between two engineers – Allen Fehr and Joseph Graham - in the small town of Freeport, Illinois. After almost a decade of competing against one another and witnessing each other’s capabilities, they developed a mutual trust. They teamed up, and Fehr Graham was born.

Five employees reported to work Sept. 15, 1973, at the firm’s first office at 660 W. Stephenson St. The firm offered engineering and surveying services. Today, Fehr Graham employs nearly 200 employees across 11 offices in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. And we offer civil engineering, structural engineering, safety and environmental services. Like our founders, we do it with the same collaborative spirit and insightful, results-driven solutions.
