Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!

This year, we pivoted during the pandemic to continue providing our clients with quality service. We are thankful for the technology and the creativity and flexibility of our firm to adapt to the changes this year has brought on.

Who we are.

Despite what the year has provided, we have lots to be thankful for and to celebrate. We wouldn't be the firm we are today without each member of the Wallace family.
We welcomed 16 new members to the Wallace family in four of our offices. So happy to have Aaron, Lauren, Liz, Jim, Jackson, Debbie, Nicole, Lindsey, Allyson, Tanner, Joe, Steven, Trey, Davis, Craig and Abe on board!
We hosted eight college students as interns this summer - Brandon Faltin, James Gordon, Mary Ziegler, Michael Mesigh, Mitchell Mueller, Paige Hartzler, Patrick Allan and Hudson Mazzei.
We promoted seven employees this year. Nicole Watts, PE, CFM was promoted to Associate and Evan Myers, PE, SE; Ilias Gibigaye, PE, SE; Patrick Altendorf, PE; Tim Smith, PE; Lee Martin, PE, PLS; and Jordan Gibbs, PE were promoted to PE II.
Five engineering interns passed the PE exam to become licensed Professional Engineers! Congrats, Patrick, Heidi, Steven, Mili, and Tanner!

We’re so proud of Skylar Calhoun for being named one of NextGen’s Under 30 as well as Darcey Schumacher being part of the team awarded an Excellence Award by CREW KC.

What we do.

Our services are more than just a profession – they’re an extension of who we are.
In 2020, we provided structural and/or civil engineering services for 3,100+ projects. These projects are located across 48 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Every project deserves - and receives - the same degree of care, quality, responsiveness and creativity, regardless of location or size.
We are thrilled to be listed in Building Design & Construction's Giants 400 Report in multiple categories.

Why it matters.

We're stronger together.
We believe it’s important to be a good corporate citizen and help our neighbors in need. We encourage our employees to become involved in their communities and lend their passion and support to programs that positively impact the quality of life. We are honored to help support the following organizations in 2020 - Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics Colorado, Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City, Restore OKC, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Pawsitive Tails and Night Light Tulsa.
These employees volunteered their time serving on boards or committees for both local and national professional and volunteer organizations this year.

We are committed to making Wallace Engineering a great place to work for all. Our core purpose as a company is to Make Lives Better. If we are truly a great place to work we must continue to prove it and we must continue to improve it. Our employees deserve this and our culture deserves this.

We want Wallace to be a workplace of respectful treatment, free of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and one that values people of all types. This summer, we brought in Wolf Prairie to facilitate a company-wide Workplace of Respect workshop focusing on formal anti-harassment training that demonstrates our commitment to prevent and respond to cases of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.

In September, we had a conversation about race relations with Hannibal B. Johnson - an author, attorney, and consultant specializing in diversity and inclusion issues, human relations, leadership and non-profit leadership and management. Our goal was to learn more about what took place in Tulsa nearly 100 years ago, to educate ourselves on race relations, and to make sure we Make Lives Better for everyone. One of the many takeaways was the importance of looking within and finding ways each of can personally help affect change in our world for the better.
