Our Unique Foundation and Promising Future
How have we changed? In some ways, we haven’t. We’re still thought leaders and problem solvers. We’re still engineers, architects, scientists and consultants. But the world around us has changed, and we’ve evolved with it to continue to meet the needs of our clients.
Take a look at some of the major highlights of CTLGroup's history. Knowledge accumulated since our unique beginning has turned into entirely new areas of inquiry for our firm, and into entirely new benefits to our clients. As the world adapts to the challenges of a tough economy and a push to "go green," we remain at the forefront of the industry by providing the most reliable results, no matter what the issue. The only thing that will never change for us is the promise our mission statement provides to our clients: to solve tough problems with technically sound, practical solutions.
Our firm’s foundation originated almost 100 years ago as the cement and concrete technology research and development laboratories of the Portland Cement Association (PCA). In the 1960’s, Construction Technology Laboratories (CTL) began providing consulting services for applied research projects and expanded its engineering consulting through the 1980’s. In 1987, CTL was incorporated as an independent subsidiary of the PCA and in 2005, was rebranded as the company known today as CTLGroup.
