Founders and Current Owners

Who We Are

Engineer Archie Becher Sr. and Land Surveyor Melvin Hoppe teamed up in 1954 to provide professional engineering and surveying services to Wausau and throughout north central Wisconsin.  The same service lines our company is built around today.

Hundreds of successful and varied projects later, our firm remains committed to serving our community and region, working with municipal, county and state governments; along with developers, agricultural clients, private institutions, and businesses throughout the state.

Our Engineering Team

Local and Ready to Serve

We stand ready as a primary project services provider, with a multidisciplinary team of more than 20 engineers, surveyors, real estate specialist,s and support staff who work closely with clients to transform visions and concepts into reality, ensuring a mutually rewarding project experience.

Close ties to our region contribute to a strong sense of community involvement and responsibility as we promote and support green and sustainable efforts, environmental preservation and improvement, aesthetic and historic integrity, quality of life, and encouraging youth to appreciate how careers in engineering can benefit them and their communities.
