Book Compiles 100 years of Stanley Consultants’ History

A century of engineering history has been documented in a new book, "Engineering a Better World: A Centennial History of Stanley Consultants."

In honor of the firm's 100th anniversary, the global consulting engineering firm commissioned the book. Written by historian Bill Beck, it chronicles the firm's modest start in 1913 as a one-man storefront in Muscatine, Iowa, to becoming a leading provider of engineering, environmental and construction services nationally and internationally. Today Stanley Consultants is the largest engineering firm in Iowa, with offices in Muscatine, Des Moines, Iowa City, and Cedar Rapids.

“100 years is a very significant mark. Few consulting engineering firms have a history as long as ours. More often than not, they fade away or are acquired by other firms,” said Richard H. Stanley, chair emeritus of Stanley Consultants.
