Moore Associates was founded in 1967 by Bill Moore, PE, P.L.S, to provide consulting services in civil, traffic, environmental, and land use engineering for federal, state, municipal, and private projects.

“To support H.W. Moore, Hancock is outfitting the office with a full land surveying staff including field crews,” said President Wayne C. Jalbert.

“By bringing the two firms together, we’re able to offer more services, expand our reach, and serve our clients even more efficiently. We’re excited for the future.”

H.W. Moore will continue to operate under its corporate name, and Jim White, PE; Fred Keylor; and Bob Carter will remain as the lead engineers in the Boston office.

Jason Ellis, P.L.S., will lead the new land surveying department. Ellis is one of Hancock’s project managers, an associate of the firm, and has over 20 years of land surveying experience.

“With H.W. Moore as a division of Hancock Associates, we’re able to offer expanded planning and civil design services for public and private entities,” said Jalbert.

“H.W. Moore has enjoyed great success for over 50 years so it was very important for us to join a firm that would continue that tradition,” said outgoing President Hal Moore. “By joining Hancock’s team, we’re able to add land surveying and wetland science to our services and insure success for the next 50 years.”
