3-Tier Alaska Merges with Travis/Peterson Environmental Consulting
3-Tier Alaska, a professional land surveying and civil engineering company, and Travis/Peterson Environmental Consulting announced they have joined forces. The merger expands and deepens the combined company’s civil, environmental, land surveying, and water system design services across Alaska.
3-Tier Alaska, founded by Jim Ringstad in the early ’80s, specializes in land surveying and civil engineering for land use projects across Alaska. In 2018, Jim’s son, Nick Ringstad, took over the company and grew it from two to twelve full-time employees.
Travis/Peterson, founded in 1998 by Michael Travis and Larry Peterson, specializes in environmental engineering and consulting. The company currently has seven full-time employees including professional engineers, biologists, geologists, and environmental scientists, as well as seasonal staff.
“Travis/Peterson has a first-class reputation and deep expertise in environmental consulting and engineering in the state of Alaska. Their team of registered engineering and environmental science professionals integrate perfectly with 3-Tier Alaska’s nearly thirty years’ worth of experience in land surveying and land use,” says Nick Ringstad, owner of the merged company.
Larry Peterson adds, “The two companies share a common belief that there is no substitute for hard work, dedication, and honesty. Our goal is to complete objective work, in a timely manner, at a fair price.”
“Larry and I are excited to join 3-Tier Alaska—an established Alaskan firm. This ensures that we can continue to support future development in our state,” says Michael Travis.
Travis/Peterson is now a division of 3-Tier Alaska and will maintain their offices in Fairbanks and Anchorage.
The newly combined company offers services including drinking water, storm water and wastewater treatment system design; spill response, prevention and contaminated site remediation; SWPPPs, environmental site assessments, wetlands and permitting; as well as subdivision design and engineering, property, boundary and remote surveying, and construction surveying, among other services.

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
