Making a Difference, One Solution at a Time

By Thomas Pulse, PE

Design professionals come in many forms. They design, engineer, landscape, survey, map, inspect, and build the infrastructure that surrounds and serves us. But they share one common characteristic: The work they do improves lives.

For nearly 60 years, the professionals at Ayres Associates have been working to make your world – and the world of those you love – a better place. We’ve done that by:

Transforming brownfields into thriving public spaces.

Improving public safety by designing vital trail links.

Mobilizing resources to mitigate flooding risks for residents.

The culture of caring we share at Ayres Associates started with our company founder, Owen Ayres. He instituted many of the practices our company follows to this day:

  • Working with clients as a partner
  • Offering smart, creative solutions to clients’ needs
  • Conducting business with the utmost integrity

Giving back to the community is an essential part of who we are at Ayres, and the three project stories featured in our new corporate video truly embody this mission. The clients and residents featured tell how our work has made a difference in their world.

We thank them – and you – for the trust you’ve placed in our services, and we thank you for letting us be a part of your lives.
