Moffatt & Nichol Celebrates 70 Years of Service
Anchorage, Alaska, <July 20, 2015> – Global infrastructure advisor Moffatt & Nichol celebrates 70 years of service this month. With revenues of $134 million in 2014 and more than 600 staff members worldwide, Moffatt & Nichol remains an industry leader, continuing to expand services to clients around the globe.
In the early 1940s engineers Frank Nichol and John Moffatt moved to Southern California to assist with the war effort. Their employer, Guy F. Atkinson Construction, had tasked them with designing and building several key U.S. Navy installations to secure the nation’s Pacific coast, all the while learning the ins and outs of port facilities. As World War II came to a close, the two decided to strike out on their own, and on July 20, 1945 established Moffatt & Nichol. Moffatt & Nichol quickly became known for its maritime-related work, expanding its engineering services to Southern California’s growing commercial waterfront.
Moffatt & Nichol would go on to open offices in North America, South America, Europe and the Pacific Rim, while expanding its primary practice areas to support the larger demands of the goods movement industry. Today, the firm operates 30 offices worldwide, providing clients with customized services in marine terminals; waterfronts and marinas; coasts, water, and the environment; transportation; oil and gas marine facilities; and inspection and rehabilitation.
In 2012, Moffatt & Nichol opened its Anchorage office to better serve clients in Alaska. From Ketchikan to Prudhoe Bay, Moffatt & Nichol has supported diverse marine projects unique to Alaska’s coastal environment. The recently completed ANB Harbor rebuild in Sitka, for which the firm as lead designer took the project from concept to completion, garnered an Engineering News-Record project award in 2014.
