EMH&T Celebrates 90 Years of Client Service


EMH&T is proud to announce its ninetieth year of providing professional engineering and survey services to our valued clients throughout the Midwest and the Southeast.

Founded in 1926 by Gordon E. Evans, the firm initially provided land surveying from Gahanna, Ohio, to support the growing local development market. In 1949, Wilbur H. Mechwart, a civil engineer and good friend of Mr. Evans, joined him and the firm was renamed Evans and Mechwart. A few years later, in 1954, engineers Wallace Hambleton and John Tilton joined the firm, completing the transformation to Evans, Mechwart, Hambleton & Tilton, today known as EMH&T.

Over the years, the firm continued to grow and additional disciplines including planning and landscape architecture, transportation engineering, environmental and cultural resources, urban design, geographic information systems, construction services, and railroad engineering, were added to meet the needs of a growing client base.

Today, EMH&T offers this comprehensive array of disciplines to address the full range of any project’s needs from entitlements through construction. The firm’s more than 350 professionals and technical personnel include civil, public works, transportation and water resource engineers, surveyors, construction managers, environmental scientists, GIS specialists, and land planners representing 16 core disciplines.

As we celebrate 90 great years of the firm’s history, we also look forward to many more years of outstanding service to our clients across the country.

Also in 2016, the firm’s Indianapolis Office celebrates 15 years of service to clients throughout Indiana and the Charlotte Office celebrates 11 years of service to clients throughout the Carolinas and the Southeast.
