ATCS Named a 2020 Top Workplace!

Herndon, June 19th, 2020 – ATCS has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2020 Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area. Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“Now in its seventh year, The Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to highlight the companies that are leaders in the Washington-area in terms of employee engagement and satisfaction,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “We had a record number of employees participate in the survey this year, making it clear that these organizations have made cultivating an atmosphere of support and respect a priority.”

ATCS’ achievement can be directly attributed to its strong corporate culture, which enables its employees to feel empowered and excited about their work each day. Client, Employee, Company, and Community represent ATCS’ Four Pillars and they support our commitment to create and value strong and meaningful relationships.

“I am humbled and honored by this recognition, especially since it is based on employee feedback” mentions Young Ho Chang, President. “This is a testament to our belief that we can be a successful company that does great work, and takes care of our employees and the communities we serve.”

The full list along with additional content will run in print in a special Top Workplaces magazine on October 14 and will be available on The Post’s site. The Washington Post will also host an awards ceremony in October to recognize the 200 top-ranked companies.

ATCS Opens New Office in Largo, MD

ATCS is expanding its footprint in Prince George’s County to meet current and future planned growth.

Herndon, VA, January 16th, 2019 – ATCS, a professional consulting firm, announced the opening of its new office in Largo, MD which will strengthen the firm’s partnerships and present greater opportunities to meet the increasing needs of clients throughout the region.

“The decision to expand our footprint and open an office in Prince George’s County was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Young Ho Chang, President. “We believe the future is strong for Prince George’s County and with Dr. Haitham Hijazi, we are poised to serve our clients well”

For more than 25 years, ATCS has delivered exceptional engineering, planning and design services to clients on a broad range of projects. With intimate knowledge of local requirements and processes, ATCS’ professionals are invaluable partners in delivering innovative and efficient solutions for its clients so that their communities can flourish.

A recent addition to the ATCS team, Dr. Haitham Hijazi, P.E., L.S. will lead the newly formed Largo office. Haitham brings over 32 years of experience in the engineering and land surveying industry. He previously managed a private engineering and surveying consulting company in Adelphi, Maryland. Haitham later spent over 25 years serving in several leadership roles in Prince George’s County Government, first at the County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) and then at the Department of Permitting, Inspection and Enforcement (DPIE). At DPW&T, Haitham directed and was responsible for as many as 450 employees and strived to ensure the highest degree of public service in the County’s public roadway system, public transit systems, and storm drainage infrastructure. Haitham was then tapped by former County Executive Baker to develop and lead DPIE to consolidate the County’s permitting, inspection, and enforcement processes that were scattered across over seven agencies and offices into a one-stop center.

“Opening a new office in Prince George’s County will further enhance our service capabilities in this growing region,” said Melanie Graf, Vice President, Site Civil Practice. “We are excited to provide our services and help grow the County.”
