History

In 1944, H.W. Lochner, Inc. was founded by Harry Lochner, Sr. Harry worked on the development of some of the country’s first urban area freeway plans, along with plans for freeway corridors between cities. These plans were a forerunner to what is now the Interstate Highway System.

One of the first comprehensive highway design software systems, HDPS, was developed by Lochner. HDPS was endorsed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and many state Departments of Transportation (DOT). The firm established Techplot as a subsidiary to market the system to other firms.

Major project wins continued, including the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge in New Haven, Connecticut, and the Mid- Currituck project in North Carolina, Lochner’s first P3 project.

Recently, Lochner merged with BWR to become a firm of 520 employees in 30 offices in 19 states.

Merrick & Company is an employee-owned, multidisciplinary professional services firm specializing in the energy, national security, life sciences, and sustainable infrastructure markets.

History

In 1955, Sears W. Merrick and Ed Lecuyer formed an engineering company in Colorado and in 1959 it was incorporated as Merrick & Company. In the beginning, Merrick was primarily a civil engineering and surveying company, offering surveying and design services for electrical transmission and distribution projects throughout the Rocky Mountain region. In response to client demands for a broader range of services from a single source, the firm steadily expanded to embrace all of the traditional engineering disciplines as well as architecture. By the late 1980s, the firm’s engineering and architectural capabilities were reflected in projects throughout the U.S.   The existing range of technical services was expanded in the late 1980s to include geographical information services (GIS), process engineering, and material-handling equipment design and fabrication.
