Frank Hancock, PLS, PE founded the firm in 1978 to provide land surveying and civil engineering services in Essex County, Mass. Donald Desmond, who assisted Frank in creating the firm and added wetland science as a service, became president in 1984 and Wayne Jalbert, PLS became president in 2016. Today, Hancock Associates has offices in Boston, Brockton, Chelmsford, Danvers, Marlborough, Newburyport, Palmer and Princeton, Mass. and Concord, N.H. and over 100 employees to serve clients in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Representatives of Hancock Associates say they have maintained their position as an industry leader for 45 years through their investment in exceptional staff, state-of-the-art equipment/technology and acquisition of multiple surveying and engineering firms, adding that, over the years, they have also amassed an impressive archive of historical survey records dating back to 1852 from nearly 40 land surveying and civil engineering firms. These records assist Hancock in performing surveying tasks quickly and cost-effectively and serve as a resource for other organizations and individuals.

“Hancock Associates has enjoyed great success for 45 years. It’s a testament to the exceptional skill and integrity of our staff and the quality of our work,” said Jalbert. “We’re very proud of our history and excited to continue the Hancock legacy for the next 45 years and beyond.”
