Our History

Our History

Engineering Better Communities, Together.

Robert G. Campbell & Associates was founded in 1970 as Volunteer Engineering by Robert Campbell, PE and Larry Wexler, PE who worked together at TDOT. Both men had a passion for surveying and site development; this was evident in early subdivision and commercial developments. Early survey work included construction layouts for Norfolk Southern and multiple boundary and topographic surveys. Their expertise in road design gave them the technical skills to undertake a variety of development projects. Their first office was a small space on Clinton Highway, where they used a computer time share agreement to reduce survey data into coordinates and often worked into the morning on projects. RGC&A has carried this trend to merge cutting-edge engineering and technology into its current culture.

In 1980, Bob Campbell changed the name to Robert G. Campbell and Associates, LLP, and the business transitioned into a full-time operation. Soon, the firm expanded its capabilities to include utility and roadway work, completing water and sewer projects in Tennessee and Kentucky, as well as undertaking its first large roadway project – SR 61 from Clinton to Oak Ridge. As the firm grew, project complexity increased, including a stakeout of the north end zone expansion of Neyland Stadium along with its first bridge project in Anderson County.

RGC&A moved into its current location at 7523 Taggart Lane in 1995. Today, we are involved in a variety of engineering endeavors that utilize surveying, design and inspection for multiple local public and private entities. We strive to operate under the same high standards of quality laid forth by our founders over 40 years ago, and will always work to ensure the best for our clients.
