Civil + Structural Engineer Highlights Our 125th

Civil + Structural Engineer magazine’s October edition features an article about our 125th anniversary, written by CFO/Chief Strategy Officer Cindy Milrany.

The article, headlined “Fort Worth-based Freese and Nichols Grounded in History, Innovation,” explores our founding, philosophy and future.

Here’s the opening:

It was like a community tailgating party, with company staff members handing out water bottles to visitors on a toasty July morning while celebrating this milestone with city leaders and staff.

This picture-perfect example of Freese and Nichols’ immersion in the communities we serve illustrates a key component of how our firm has thrived over our 125-year history. Engineering firms have the chance to make people’s lives better, and we take that challenge to heart.
