This year is a momentous occasion for Oates Associates as we celebrate our 40th anniversary.  We have kicked off 2020 with a progressive outlook for the future while reflecting on our past.  From 1980 to 2020 we have been shaped by our people and projects, clients and partners, and family and friends – and have highlighted some noteworthy accolades:

What began as a small office in Glen Carbon, Illinois soon grew to a 45-person firm with offices across Illinois and Missouri.  Founder David Oates is still a familiar face around the office.

Our versatile staff continues to grow and includes licensed Professional Engineers, Structural Engineers, Professional Land Surveyors, Professional Traffic Operations Engineers, ADA Coordinators, Competent and Qualified Persons in Fall Protection, and LEED Accredited Professionals.

We have designed projects that have shaped the landscape of our region, both transportation and building infrastructure.  Our more historical projects include the design of new interstate, bridges, and interchanges along Interstate 255 totaling $70 million in construction and the original design of over $100 million of new campus buildings at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Oates leaders have been the face of engineering associations that continue to build and advance the engineering profession, including Bruce Schopp as the Board Chair of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Illinois and Joseph Hagerty, who served as the Chairman of the Board of ACEC of Missouri last year.

Oates Associates’ 40th year is in honor of our many dedicated employees and clients – and we look forward to celebrating throughout 2020.
