In 1979, Glen Teter opened a small structural engineering office in Visalia with the vision of building a better Central Valley. Fast-forward forty years, and TETER has grown to five offices with over 100 staff practicing a dozen architectural and engineering services. But those numbers only tell a small part of the story. The bigger story is how TETER has remained true to its roots and vision, allowing the firm to have an enormous impact on life in the Central Valley.
One of the most important ingredients of this success? TETER’s staff. One look at their website’s People page and you know that the employees mirror the amazing diversity of the Central Valley. They live, work, play, and raise their families here, and everything they do is based on their deep connection—often over many generations—to their home. Add to that their impressive professional experience and client-focused work ethic, and you have a recipe for successful individuals and a thriving firm.
TETER’s diverse market sectors and project types run the gamut from kindergarten through university education to healthcare, municipal, federal, industrial, and private-sector projects. Much of the firm’s work comes from repeat clients—some have been with the firm almost from the beginning—who return because they know the quality of attention and commitment each project receives at TETER.
Along with the firm’s growth over the past forty years, TETER has also broadened the scope of services it offers. From a modest start with structural engineering, the range of services has expanded to include architecture, master planning, a suite of engineering services (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and of course structural), information technology, construction administration, sustainability, funding analyses, and accessibility surveys.
With four decades under its belt, TETER is a legacy firm looking ahead to the next forty years. Always moving forward, it is constantly creating new opportunities that will benefit the company as well as current and future staff. Despite its tremendous growth since 1979, TETER remains grounded in the vision and values it started with all those years ago in Visalia, and its commitment to BUILDING A BETTER VALLEY will continue to drive its momentum into the future.
