High Mesa Consulting Group is an Albuquerque based organization which was formed in 1977. The firm began with a staff of only two. The goal of the firm was to provide general civil engineering services for state, federal, and local agencies as well as private clients. Parent company names include Goldberg-Mann and Associates, Inc. (1977-1980) and Tom Mann and Associates, Inc. (1980-1988) and Jeff Mortensen & Associates, Inc. (1988-2007). During this time the firm has shown continuous growth while establishing a record of surveying and engineering excellence and business responsibility. These qualities have been combined with a high level of professional integrity and dependability
In 1980, Tom Mann purchased Barry Goldberg’s interest in the corporation and renamed the corporation Tom Mann & Associates, Inc. In January 1988, following 10 years of service in the organization, ownership was transferred to Jeff Mortensen. The name of the firm was subsequently changed to Jeff Mortensen & Associates, Inc. In 1994, a portion of ownership was transferred to Juan Cala and Charles Cala, Jr. In 2001, additional portions of ownership were transferred to key employees including Joe Solomon and Graeme Means to expand the ownership, and provide additional diversity for our client base. In 2007, the name of the firm was changed to High Mesa Consulting Group, Inc. In 2015, ownership shares were redistributed amongst the existing Principals, and Joe Gonzales was brought in as a new partner to run the growing subsurface utility department, followed by a similar event in 2020 to bring Paul Street into an ownership role. In April 2022, after a distinguished 41 year career as a Production Manager, Principal and Vice President at High Mesa Consulting Group, Juan Cala retired. The aforementioned changes in ownership and name have occurred without significant changes in staff, client base, scope of services and general policies.
High Mesa Consulting Group has evolved from these companies into a progressive, Quality Based Selection (QBS) Firm, committed to serving our On-Call client base and all facets of land development including civil engineering, surveying, subsurface utility consultation, and land use planning.
We have an outstanding record of continued growth, of expansion of services offered, and of providing top quality services to our clients. The growth and reputation of the firm are the direct outcome of individual efforts and close cooperation by all of our associates. Our future success is dependent upon the continuation of these efforts and adherence to the highest professional standards and ideals.
