Becoming one of only a few full service firms in St. Louis, CASSIS Associates, Inc. billed itself as an organization of Engineers, Architects and Construction Consultants rendering comprehensive professional services to Industrial, Commercial, Institutional and Governmental clients. A broad range of services was offered from feasibility studies through planning, design and construction management.
The firm’s projects were located in a great many states across the U.S., as well as a number of foreign countries. CASSIS Associates performed projects for office buildings, grocers, restaurants, banks and other sectors. The firm especially thrived in light industrial projects including those for oil and ware and cable companies, and particularly for the paper industry.
In the late 70’s, Mr. Cassis decided to either sell or wind down the company. In June of 1980 the assets of Cassis Associates were acquired by six of its employees and the firm was relocated to 10820 Sunset Office Drive in Sunset Hills, MO. James C. (JC) Alberts, P.E. became the company’s President, and its other “Principals” were James G. Govaia, P.E., James C. Tegethoff, P.E., Paul J. Huber P.E., Ralph R. Shaw, R.A. and Paul R. Doering.
