Our History

Broaddus & Associates was established in 2000 by James A. Broaddus, Ph.D., P.E. Following a 20-year career as a U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps Officer and Seabee where he built facilities across the globe, Dr. Broaddus served as Associate Director of the Construction Industry Institute (CII), a national research center dedicated to improving quality and cost-effectiveness on construction projects. Combining his naval background in practical application and his CII research on Best Practices, Dr. Broaddus then served as Director of Facilities Planning and Construction for the 15-campus statewide University of Texas System from 1994-1998, where he was responsible for $1.4 billion of higher education facilities construction. During his subsequent tenure as CEO of Design-Build Institute of America, Dr. Broaddus recognized an acute need to assist owners in the management of complex, major capital construction programs.

Broaddus & Associates was founded because as clients, we saw the need for a firm to help manage our work. This owner-oriented philosophy is the reason all of our executives are involved and deeply committed to every project: we have walked in your shoes. Best Practices programs such as constructability, pre-project planning and partnering have been used in addition to alternate project delivery systems to effectively control budgets, compress schedules and create satisfied clients. The firm began in Austin, Texas, where it still maintains its corporate headquarters. Soon afterward, an office in Houston was opened to support our operations in the Texas Medical Center. This was the first of nine regional offices that would open over the course of the next 10 years. In this time, the company has expanded to include over 120 project professionals covering different regions and market sectors.
