While plans to build its new corporate office are in place, employee-owned engineering consulting firm Terracon has announced that it will continue to call Olathe, Kan. home. The company plans to build its new $21-million corporate headquarters just south of Corporate Ridge Office Park, its current location.

The developer is VanTrust Real Estate LLC, a regional real estate development company. Local authorities have worked to facilitate the development.

Terracon CAO, Gayle Packer, said that the decision to move into a new building is in tune with the company’s growth plans. “Terracon is focused on growth as evidenced by our internal expansion and acquisition activities. Our strategic plan guides us to continue growing at a rate of 10-15 percent each year, and we expect that the employment base at our corporate office will increase accordingly,” Packer said in prepared remarks.

The building is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2018, and development plans include collaborative spaces, a conference center and a great array of amenities. Until the new facility is in move-in condition, the company will continue to occupy the 2-story, 65,000- square-foot building near Kansas Highway 10 and Ridgeview Road.
