Danvers, MA – Hancock Associates, a local provider of land surveying, civil engineering, and wetland science services, is celebrating 40 years in business.

The firm was founded in 1978 by Frank Hancock, PLS, PE, to provide land surveying and civil engineering services to the North Shore and Essex County.

Donald I. Desmond, PLS, who assisted in creating the firm, became president in 1984. Wayne C. Jalbert, PLS, became president in 2016. Today, Hancock Associates has offices in seven locations, over 70 employees, and serves Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

The firm also maintains an archive of historical survey records from 25 land surveying and civil engineering firms dating back to 1852. These records not only can assist Hancock Associates in performing surveying tasks quickly and cost effectively, they can be an invaluable resource for other organizations and individuals.

“Our founders created a firm focused on integrity, accuracy, and delivery. For 40 years, we’ve been able to continue that tradition by investing in exceptional staff and building great partnerships with our clients through expertise, dedication, leadership, and trust,” said Hancock Associates’ president, Wayne C. Jalbert. “We look forward to another 40 great years!”
