A History of Successful Projects and Repeat Clientele

Our company history goes back to 1983, when H. Wood “Woody” Thrasher, PE, a young engineer with an entrepreneurial spirit, started a civil engineering firm with his father, a seasoned engineer himself. Their philosophy was centered around the commitment to building business through successful projects and the idea that strong relationships lead to repeat clientele.

Since that time, The Thrasher Group – a multi-disciplinary firm composed of professionals in civil engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, environmental, and field services – has been growing throughout Appalachia and the Mid-Atlantic region.

Woody operates The Thrasher Group North Carolina – a separate company with roots that go back to 1964 as Robinson & Sawyer – under the same principles. Our team is dedicated to improving communities where we live and work right here in the western Piedmont region and across the border in upstate South Carolina. We bring talented, home-grown professionals together in a collaborative environment and give them opportunities to do meaningful work on projects that matter to local residents.

By listening to our clients and prioritizing their needs, we are able to find strategies and solutions that continue to produce successful projects and strong relationships.
