In addition to celebrating 50 years of architecture and engineering services, Crafton Tull is opening a new location in Conway. The 13,000-square-foot facility will be located at the Meadows Office & Technology Park.
Crafton Tull has been recognized by Engineering News Record as a top 500 design firm and has been ranked the nation’s 81st fastest growing architectural, engineering and environmental firm by ZweigWhite.
Executive vice president of energy services Lane Housley credits the company’s success to the employees’ strong belief that “there is no ‘I’ in team” and that “failure is not an option.”
Housley says Crafton Tull’s clients have recognized this “unique attribute” and have benefited from this mindset when it comes to completing a project. “We also know that to be successful you need to appreciate and be thankful for all the many blessings the Good Lord sends your way.”
Making the move to Conway was an obvious decision for Housley, who says the company felt the need to prepare itself for potential work when natural gas production from the Fayetteville Shale increased. “Besides, most of our team is from the local area and we all knew that Conway was a great place to shop and dine. So we gambled on it being a great place to work, play and call home. We bet right!”
The company broke ground on Aug. 15 and anticipates the new office building to open in March 2014.
