Baird, Hampton & Brown was founded on April 23, 1992, by Bill Baird, Merlin Hampton, and Les Brown. BHB opened its first office at the WT Waggoner building in downtown Fort Worth and rented on a month-to-month basis, because they were unsure how their new business venture would pan out. The founders started BHB with little to no money or clients, and solely relied on their passion for engineering and great work ethic. Through their humbling experience of starting their new firm, they had to find creative ways to gain clients, recruit employees, and most importantly — find consistent work. It was tough in the beginning, but it all seemed to come together in the end.
BHB wanted to take a moment to reflect on these past 30 years and the notable milestones we’ve accomplished along the way. We recently launched our 30th anniversary timeline on our website, where you can find some of BHB’s proudest moments over the years.
We also would like to thank our building partners, families, and employees that have continued to support us over the years and the ones who believed in us from the start. We thank you.
