History

Zannino Engineering, Inc. (ZEI) got its start in October 1, 1991 after the closing of the Richmond District office of ATEC Associates on September 30, 1991. With former ATEC employees and newly purchased testing equipment, ZEI was able to honor contracts that had to be abandoned by ATEC such as the Richmond Floodwall projects. The strength of ZEI lies in its long history in Virginia and the years of personal experience of its employees with this firm and other geotechnical and testing firms. All key staff have advanced degrees in civil, geotechnical and environmental engineering and have had unlimited opportunities to apply their education to solving practical problems and servicing design, development and construction professionals. ZEI’s founder, Thomas Zannino has over 35 years of engineering experience with over 30 years in the geotechnical services.
