About Huitt-Zollars, Inc.
In an era when all professional service firms looked alike, a desire to create a business culture that made the focus on integrity, quality, and client satisfaction, Huitt-Zollars’ founders knew firsthand that when top-notch people work in a quality environment on great projects, everyone wins.
The idea was born from a friendship that began in the late 1960’s. While working for the same engineering firm early in their careers, Larry Huitt, a now-retired structural engineer, and Robert Zollars, a civil engineer, became respected colleagues. Although they pursued different career paths, their shared business values and mutual desire to create an unmatched culture soon brought them together.
In establishing the firm in 1975, they committed to a set of operating principles that continue to be the backbone of the company. Today, Huitt-Zollars’ core values are inherent in its people, projects, process, and philosophy.
From day one, the company has followed this vision and has grown into one of the most respected firms in the United States. Twenty offices nationwide, consistent repeat business, a growing portfolio of work and recognition via numerous awards and honors attest to t...he company’s reputation. We continue to earn some of the nation's most challenging projects and attract the best talent.
