DALLAS-FORT WORTH, TX & LINCOLNSHIRE, IL – National civil engineering and surveying firm Manhard Consulting has acquired an established DFW-area surveying firm, Realsearch of Texas, LLC, welcoming its staff of eight to the Manhard family and the firm’s Fort Worth office at 505 Pecan Street, Suite 201.
“Incorporating the Realsearch team into our organization allows us to offer all our services under one roof,” said Don Manhard, Jr., President and CEO. “Integrating surveying and engineering improves our communication and efficiency and ensures personalized, detail-oriented attention for each client and each project, which is a hallmark of how we work.”
The firm was led by Jeremy Deal, who joins Manhard as a senior project manager. Deal, a professional surveyor and UT Arlington civil engineering graduate, adds to the firm’s surveying and engineering capabilities along with his years of experience working on projects in the DFW metroplex, including:

  • Sapphire Bay, a luxury mixed-use resort development in Rowlett, Texas
  • Bishop North, a multi-family development in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, Texas
  • StayOvr at the Star-Frisco, a multi-family/hospitality development in Frisco, Texas

“Our experience collaborating with Manhard allowed us to get to know and trust one another,” said Deal. “This gives us the opportunity to grow our volume of surveying work in DFW while supporting Manhard’s commitment to the area, and it provides additional opportunities for our staff to learn and grow within a larger organization.”

Manhard associates have worked with Deal and his team for years, finding success together based on a shared work ethic and focus on client service. Given the metroplex’s rapid growth and population gains, teaming up provides more options to respond to the market. For example, the low inventory of homes means rising prices and demand for developers to plan and execute more home building. A steadily growing populace needs additional infrastructure and industrial development to manufacture and deliver goods in the last mile, along with healthcare, education, and retail development. Manhard has decades of experience supporting developers’ work to bring these types of projects to fruition.

This addition of Realsearch of Texas to Manhard Consulting gives the firm 12 offices nationwide, with four in Texas–Dallas, Fort Worth, Plano, and Austin.
