The new office will further Hayward Baker's organic growth in this market with an improved local presence that supports public, commercial, and industrial clients, and serves as a resource to the design community to address challenging geotechnical site conditions, provide comprehensive geotechnical construction solutions, and deliver enhanced services in the region.
The new office is located at affiliate Case Foundation's existing location in Phoenix. Hayward Baker and Case Foundation are both part of the Keller group of companies.
Former Western Region Ground Improvement Operations manager Thayne Harris assumes the role of area manager for the Phoenix office. He has been with Hayward Baker over 30 years and brings nearly 10 years of management experience with another 25 under various roles specialising in ground modification.
Hayward Baker previously covered work remotely from both the California ground improvement and Las Vegas branches. This new office complements the existing Case office that has been successful in Phoenix for over 20 years. Together, the companies will offer expanded geotechnical solutions to clients in the Phoenix market.
