Engineering. Surveying. Testing. Operations.

GFA (Gourdie-Fraser) is a full-service consulting firm providing civil and structural engineering, surveying, construction services and contract operations. GFA was established in 1948 in downtown Traverse City as the John C. Norton Company. Since that time we’ve grown along with the area and in 2020 we’ll be celebrating 72s year in business – as well as a Builder’s Exchange Award of Excellence for Traverse City’s 8th Street Reconstruction Project!
