History of The Brannon Corporation                                  

In the spring of 1977, Tom Barber, an architectural engineer completing tenure as a presidential appointee in the office of U.S. Housing and Urban Development, teamed with a young civil engineer, Terry Brannon, with experience primarily in City Public Works engineering (hydrology, hydraulics). Their intent was to meet an unresolved need in East Texas to serve small cities and rural counties with public works engineering services with the understanding that larger firms from Dallas and Houston failed to pursue this important market. The partnership, initially named Barber-Brannon Engineers, expanded rapidly under this premise, and added grantsmanship and architecture to the services provided to cities.

 In 1981, the partnership incorporated and added Gary Traylor, a political science graduate with a penchant for chasing and winning competitive grants for city and county clientele. Now incorporated, the firm now named Barber-Brannon-Traylor, Inc., continued to grow to over 35 employees and expanded into three Texas offices: Lubbock, Abilene, and Tyler. In 1985, Terry Brannon, P.E. purchased the stock of the other 2 stockholders, consolidated the focus of the company back to civil engineering, aviation and aquatics and sold the Abilene office to its principal, David Todd, P.E.  At the same time Gary Traylor left with his grantsmanship employees and the Lubbock office to pursue grant programs on his own as Gary R. Traylor and Associates. This change in ownership resulted in the currently registered company name of The C. T. Brannon Corporation, doing business as (dba) The Brannon Corporation.  In 2000, Rea Boudreaux, P.E., Kirk Bynum P.E., and Bob Breedlove P.E. bought the company from Terry Brannon with Terry remaining as President and Sr. Aquatics Consultant to run the Aquatics Division of The Brannon Corp. with commitment to continue the tradition of excellence into the new century. 

The company settled into a historic building that has been remodeled into a small 3 story castle, in the heart of the Azalea District in Tyler, Texas. Since 1986, and until recently, all engineering work of The Brannon Corporation has been produced from this one office. The Brannon Corporation has personnel with a combined total of well over 200 years combined experience consisting of 18 staff members, including 8 registered engineers. 

Brannon Corp. completed projects of many sizes and scopes for clients throughout the United States and abroad, with construction costs ranging from a few thousand to the tens of millions. Brannon Corp. is a full-service consulting, urban planning, civil and municipal engineering firm with specialties in aquatics/hydrology/ecology, aviation/airports, commercial & residential, education/sports/recreation, and government/municipal engineering. 

Professional engineers for The Brannon Corporation are currently registered to practice in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas, and have reciprocity to secure licensing in most other states.
