Welcome from Quaiser Hashmi, President and CEO

Since joining the firm in 2000, I have observed a relatively small engineering firm evolve into a dynamic, full-service architectural and engineering company.

Our growth over three decades has been driven by a combination of dedication and passion to deliver excellence in PM/CM, engineering, architecture, special inspections, survey/mapping, and environmental services.  Fundamental to this success has been our outstanding people and the unique culture we have fostered.

Our re-branding in 2018 resulted in a contemporary, future-focused organization moving into new markets and territories, attracting a newer generation of professionals, and continuing our long-standing relationships with client partners and stakeholders.

ATANE works with public agencies and authorities as well as private entities to deliver diverse project types and purposes.  We are large enough to respond quickly to any client request, yet small enough to bring a personalized approach to every assignment.

We hope you will visit our website often and accompany us on our journey.  We look forward to serving you.
