This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Terracon is an employee-owned engineering firm with over 5000 employees and 175 offices nationwide. Darlene Batatian is the Senior Client Development Manager and shares more about what Terracon offers.


Terracon has been in Utah since 1980 and thanks to Utah’s robust economy, our Utah team has grown to 150 engineers, scientists, technicians & administrative staff, and we are celebrating our expansion into northern Utah with a new office and lab based in Ogden.

Terracon supports projects like Brownfields redevelopment – taking potentially contaminated land and making it safe and useful for new projects. We are providing the construction quality assurance testing and inspections for Salt Lake’s newly upgraded international airport. We also provide geotechnical engineering for highways, data centers, solar and wind farms, and we offer a GIS-based assessment software that aids site selection and enhances real estate due diligence.

Terracon ensures construction projects are done safely, and Terracon’s charitable foundation recently provided grants to BYU and Utah’s HawkWatch International, an organization focused on helping birds of prey. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
