History

National Engineering & Architectural Services Inc. (NEAS Inc.) was founded in 1992 by Andy Barr, PE, PhD after a 20-year career with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). National Engineering & Architectural Services Inc. grew from a two person bridge design firm into a successful multi-disciplined operation of more than 150 employees. In 2014, NEAS Inc. completed an asset sale of its design services, allowing the firm to become more focused on the services that had most significantly impacted the company’s recent growth.

NEAS Inc. now operates under the direction of partners Jawdat Siddiqi and Enoch Chipukaizer, and is a certified DBE specializing in Geotechnical Engineering/Drilling/Testing, ROW Plan Development, Surveying, Construction Management/Inspection/Testing, and Subsurface Utility Engineering. NEAS Inc. is prequalified with ODOT in these areas of service, and over the past nine years has devoted a significant majority of its resources toward the completion of large to moderate scale transportation projects for the Department as well as Ohio Counties and Municipalities.

We continue to operate our Corporate Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio and have three AASHTO accredited Testing Laboratories; Cleveland, OH, Columbus, OH, and Lansing, MI. We also have additional office locations in Cincinnati and Cleveland, Ohio, and Louisville, Kentucky. We are pre-qualified in the states of Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia to provide a wide range of transportation and architectural design services.  NEAS Inc. is certified as a DBE program participant with the States of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia and a certified SDB with the federal government.

We are proud to be a small business that has performed services for private clients and for public clients, from local to state to federal.  We look forward to future growth and expansion opportunities as we continue to provide quality services and deliverables for exciting new projects.
