About Us

Beginning in 1966, Richard R. Whitney opened the doors of Whitney & Associates with two full-time employees operating from a leased a one-room office / laboratory located on Sheridan Road in Peoria, Illinois with a primary purpose of practicing both Civil and Geotechnical Engineering. Whitney & Associates incorporated in 1971 and moved its office and materials testing laboratory to its current address on West Nebraska Avenue. Through the effort, initiative, cooperation, and good will of our well-experienced, professional staff Whitney & Associates has served clients in the Central Illinois area for over 50 years.

The nature of our business as Professional Engineering Consultants includes providing geotechnical engineering services, subsurface and ground water investigations, field and laboratory testing and inspection of construction materials, as well as other specialized technical services. Projects located throughout the State of Illinois, as well as neighboring states include schools, multi-story office buildings, shopping centers, commercial and industrial facilities as well as communications towers, grain storage facilities, bridges, dams, roadway investigations and other specialized projects as developed by our clients.

Whitney & Associates is retained by clients who range from local, regional and national engineers and architects, project developers and contractors to local and state governmental agencies.  Professional engineering registration is maintained in the states of Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin.
