Asa (Ay-sah) Engineering & Consulting, Inc. is a multi-disciplined, professional services provider with offices in Chattanooga and Nashville, Tennessee.  Founded in 2013, our team of planners, engineers, designers, surveyors, geologists, scientists and construction inspectors have more than 500-years of combined experience and each remains steadfast in their dedication to delivering quality, on-time and on-budget service, sometimes considered a rarity in the industry.


We believe our women-owned small business designation is important, but it’s not our defining characteristic. At Asa, our work will always speak for itself. Our success is built on understanding your project’s needs and how our firm’s core principles, strengths and capabilities make us your ideal choice. We also believe in thinking and acting locally – that is, we hire and buy in the communities we serve. And while some engineering firms’ participation ends with the design phase of the project, Asa stays by your side from concept all the way through final inspection.

Like all good businesses today, it’s all about the service: who provides it, what are their qualifications, and how it’s provided.  Asa’s commitment to our clients’ success begins with our initial contact and continues until construction is completed. We are your representative, partner, and backer; and we work tirelessly to safeguard against all the seemingly inconsequential snags and major stumbling blocks that can appear along the way.

When choosing Asa, our clients know our doors are always open and our owning partners are a phone call, text message or email away.  We believe in listening to our clients and that honest, open communication is always the blueprint to success. Our team has taken the time to ‘cross-train’ in multiple disciplines, so we can better serve each client.  And because our project base includes an array of undertakings – we know the ins and outs of the private and public sectors.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"They are some of the best consultants I’ve ever worked with. I love these guys. They do an excellent job on everything.  I can say they are my favorite people to work with. Their billing is easy, they communicate. They cause no drama. They are very professional. We did some entitlements work on this plus we changed the zoning from manufacturing. This could have caused a delay, but they have great relationships in this community and they make things happen on time!”

-Buck Snyder, Principal - East By Main Townhomes Developer

“We use ASA every chance we get, whatever the project is. They deliver first-class, quality work, plus they are very timely. You’ll never be waiting on them. If you tell them you need it done yesterday, then that’s what they do. They are very responsive to our needs and deadlines. They are always professional, and we’re pleased to work with them.”

-John Kinsey, President - Kinsey, Probasco, Hayes (Choo-Choo Properties)

“We had a very positive experience with Asa Engineering. Their responsiveness and their extensive knowledge of Chattanooga was the best thing we could have done for this project. Jeff, Allen and Roger were a one-stop-shop to get everything done for groundbreaking. Not only did they navigate the PILOT requirements, they also helped us with a number of issues that came up on the site regarding easements and sewer. They really helped us and were a great team player. They would be our first recommendation to anyone looking for an engineering firm!”
