  • About

    Ayres Associates is proud of the innovative engineering and architectural solutions it has provided for more than 55 years. We deliver services in transportation, civil, structural, water resources, levee, and river engineering; architecture; landscape architecture, planning, energy corridors; environmental science; surveying; geospatial services; and GIS.

    Our offices are in Wisconsin, Florida, Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona.

    Our firm is ranked 310th among the top 500 architectural/engineering firms in the nation by Engineering News-Record magazine. We first were ranked on the ENR list in 1972, and our revenues have kept us among this caliber of firms ever since.

    Ayres Associates was founded in 1959 by Owen Ayres, a structural engineer who instituted many of the practices our company follows: working with clients as a partner; offering smart, creative solutions to clients' needs; conducting business with the utmost integrity; and providing employees not only a challenging work environment, but also the opportunity to advance and invest in their own company.

    Those principles are core values of Ayres Associates. We are an employee-owned firm that provides innovative, progressive, and intelligent engineering services nationwide to clients we know by name.

    Ayres Associates was coming up with pragmatic ways to save resources – and clients’ money – long before green became fashionable. Our engineers and scientists strive to minimize our clients' impact on the environment, and we have taken dozens of steps to reduce our own footprint.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

    Tim Lightner, Owner, Two Men and a Truck
  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.

  • The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business. The Chamber provides multiple channels for business awareness, networking opportunities and helpful educational programs. Being a member of the Chamber has really made a difference in helping expand my business visibility, growth and development in Dane County.
