3-Tier Alaska and Travis/Peterson Merge

Associated General Contractors of Alaska member companies 3-Tier Alaska and Travis/Peterson Environmental Consulting merged February 1, expanding and deepening the group’s civil, environmental, and land surveying services across Alaska.

Jim Ringstad started 3-Tier Alaska in the early ‘80s, specializing in land surveying and civil engineering. His son, Nick Ringstad, took over the company in March 2018 and grew it from two to twelve full-time employees.

Michael Travis and Larry Peterson formed Travis/Peterson in 1998. The company specialized in environmental engineering and consulting. Travis/Peterson currently has seven employees, a mix of engineers, biologists, geologists, and environmental scientists, as well as seasonal staff.

“Travis/Peterson has a first-class reputation and deep expertise in environmental consulting and engineering in the state of Alaska. Their team of registered engineering and environmental science professionals integrate perfectly with 3-Tier Alaska’s decades-worth of experience in land surveying and land use,” says Ringstad, the owner of the merged company.

“The two companies share a common belief that there is no substitute for hard work, dedication and honesty. Our goal is to complete objective work, in a timely manner, at a fair price,” says Larry Peterson.

Travis/Peterson is now a division of 3-Tier Alaska and will maintain their offices in Fairbanks and Anchorage.

AGC Joins Neighborhood Effort in Cleanup

A sure sign that spring arrived, the Associated General Contractors of Alaska staff joined Fairweather LLC, North Arrow Enterprises LLC, BeadedStream, and the Alaska Ironworkers Local 751 to clean up the Schoon Street/King Street neighborhood on May 6. Anchorage neighborhood cleanups were cancelled in 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, so having a chance to join together and clean up the neighborhood this year was cause for celebration.
