It started in 1905, when University of Michigan civil engineering professor Harry Atwell began a land surveying company from his Ann Arbor home. Civil engineer and surveyor Herbert Hicks joined him in 1949, bought the firm a year later and incorporated it as Atwell-Hicks. It flourished - and occasionally floundered - with the local economy for another 30 years. Along the way, we added services and changed ownership several times. Then the construction industry ground to a halt in the early-80s. We survived. Barely. We vowed: never again.
