Olathe, KS-based Terracon announced the acquisition of AQS Environmental, Inc. of Omaha, NE. Founded in 1965, Terracon offers environmental, facilities, geotechnical, and materials services from more than 150 offices across the U.S. Terracon currently ranks 35th on Engineerig News-Record's list of Top 500 Design Firms.
AQS is an air quality consulting firm with extensive experience solving mold, asbestos, lead-based paing, indoor air quality, and radon issues. AQS's complementary service offerings will transition seamlessly into Terracon. The company was established in 2001 by co-founders Jon Fannon and Steve Hudson, both former Terracon employees who will return to the company as part of the transaction.
AQS serves a client base across Nebraska, Iowa and the upper Midwest, which includes public school districts and higher education institutions, medical facilities, professional consulting firms, and construction companies. The company has relocated its operations into Terracon's Omaha office.
