Since 1976, CRA has grown from a small, regional engineering company, to one of the world´s most sought after, multidisciplinary engineering and consulting firms. Starting with the merger in 1976 of Frank A. Rovers & Associates and Conestoga Engineering, and less than 10 employees, CRA has grown to become a Family of Companies with 3000 employees in over 100 offices. In the late 1970s, CRA´s reputation for environmental work developed from its investigation, remedial design, and oversight of the Love Canal cleanup in Niagara Falls, New York. This project was the primary impetus for what is now the Superfund program in the United States and gave CRA international recognition in the environmental field. Since then, completed projects number in the thousands. Technical excellence and a penchant for capitalizing on opportunity account for much of CRA´s growth in the early years. Our civil engineering/municipal infrastructure roots lie in providing traditional full service engineering design and construction oversight services to several municipalities commencing in the 1970s. Many of these early clients remain with us, which is a strong testament to our quality services. Corporate responsibility, corporate accountability, technical excellence and a commitment to consistent, superior services is a philosophy that has already proven crucial to CRA´s outstanding, worldwide reputation...One which will enable the corporation to manage a future of continued growth and the provision of expert services to its clients.
