Harmsen & Associates provides land surveying, land use planning, civil engineering, and construction staking. The company is headquartered in Monroe, WA, and was founded in 1974.

Generational Equity Senior Managing Director Stephen Crisham’s team, led by trusted affiliate Steve Spencer and assisted by Managing Director Mike Meredith, successfully closed the deal. Executive Managing Director Edward Weber established the initial relationship with Harmsen & Associates.

“Harmsen & Associates has built a stellar reputation in the Puget Sound area as the civil engineering and surveying company that is known for putting the customer first, being passionate about exceptional value and quality, and ‘if you want the job done right, go to Harmsen,'” said Spencer. “Fremont-Wright quickly recognized the opportunity to integrate Harmsen & Associates’ skillsets and culture into their national platform. We are excited for both the buyer and seller, and truly expect a very successful future as together they take the business to the next level of performance on a national scale.”
