In 1976, William H. Gordon Associates, Inc. opened its doors in Reston, VA. Starting with a staff of two engineers (including Hank), the firm quickly gained a reputation as a leader in the booming Northern Virginia commercial market. Within the span of a few years, GORDON was providing both civil and surveying services to numerous commercial developers, municipal clients, and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA). Our humble beginning was founded on hard work, quality, and reliability. These same qualities are still embodied by every staff member at GORDON today.
Founder and CEO, Mr. William H. Gordon, is recognized as an outstanding civil engineer. During his Vietnam service, he was decorated five times for heroism in ground combat and was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds received in action.
With over 70 professionals located in our Mid-Atlantic Headquarters, GORDON is recognized as a leading provider of land planning and site design services nationwide. We offer the diverse expertise of civil engineers, land planners, surveyors, landscape architects, and physical security professionals, who provide progressive and sustainable solutions for some of the most complex developments and iconic projects in the country. While our outstanding performance has afforded tremendous growth; our small business and mission-focused culture remain. With our founding roots grown out of military service, GORDON is also honored to support our nation’s Warfighters, Veterans, and civilian agencies at various installations, medical centers, and national cemeteries across the country.
FORTY YEARS OF GORDON
2016 marked GORDON’s 40th-anniversary milestone. What better way to celebrate than to time-hop through each decade of the last forty years; and we of course topped it off with an unforgettable party with our outstanding employees, clients, and industry partners who made it all possible.
