About HNTB

Our History

For more than a century, HNTB has helped create infrastructure that best meets the unique demands of its environment. With client relationships spanning decades, we understand infrastructure life cycles and have the perspective to solve technical challenges with clarity and imagination.

We see and help address far-reaching issues of financing, legislation, design, construction, community outreach and ongoing operations. As employee-owners committed to the highest levels of performance, we enable clients to achieve their visions and goals.


When you participate in ESOP, you become an employee owner of the firm. The ESOP is an exclusive investment offered only to HNTB employees. HNTB’s success builds your retirement savings and your professional contributions drive that every day. Employee ownership is the foundation of who we are at HNTB.


From addressing transportation system needs that improve public safety and quality of life to planning and designing projects that minimize environmental impact, HNTB strives to improve the communities in which it operates. HNTB extends that focus beyond our work to support needs and opportunities in all our office and project locations coast to coast.


HNTB’s ideals have sustained us for more than 100 years. Our vision, philosophy and culture describe the firm’s heritage, essence of success and are the principles that we live every day.

We are a company that promises and delivers excellence in our professional and business services. A company that respects its employees, clients and all we engage with.
