What Sets Us Apart?

Professional experience from conception to completion

Successful projects require more from a firm than just technical design expertise. At Thrasher, our project managers, engineers, and architects know and understand funding, permitting, environmental impacts and anything that is required to “get the job done.”

A History of Excellence

In 1983, a young engineer with an entrepreneurial spirit and his father, a seasoned engineer with more than 40 years of experience, joined forces to start a civil engineering firm focused on public utility infrastructure in North Central West Virginia. With a commitment to building business through “successful projects and repeat clientele,” H. Wood “Woody” Thrasher, PE and the late Henry A. Thrasher, PE formed Thrasher in Clarksburg, West Virginia.

Since that time, Woody has grown Thrasher and remained committed to making Thrasher West Virginia’s largest privately-owned, multi-disciplinary engineering/architecture/survey firm and one of the leading multi-disciplinary firms in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Meeting Needs through Expansion

Publicly funded water and wastewater projects were the backbone of the company, and continue to be a large part of its engineering division. Survey and construction monitoring and inspection services departments were added in the early years of the company to support those projects.

While keeping an eye on the changing marketplace, Mr. Thrasher expanded the company’s areas of engineering to include site development for both public and private clientele, and provided design services for transportation including roadways, bridges and airports.

Based upon Thrasher’s site development planning and engineering design services for many successful building projects, in 2004, architectural design was added to the scope of services offered at the urging of their clients. Master planning and landscape architecture are the newest disciplines added to complement the architecture division.

Most recently, Thrasher has been able to successfully compete and contribute to the various energy sectors including electricity, fiber and oil and gas.
