Walter P. Moore and Associates, Inc. (d/b/a Walter P Moore) is an international company providing structural engineering, diagnostics, civil engineering, traffic engineering, parking consulting, transportation engineering, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) engineering, and water resources engineering services. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, the firm employs more than 600 professionals and operates 20 U.S. and 5 international offices.


In 1931, just as America's Great Depression entered its worst years, Walter P. Moore, Sr. started his own company by selling a Stutz Bearcat he had received in lieu of employment wages. The firm's earliest projects consisted of designing foundations for residential estates at $5 each, but they would later go on to engineer the world's first domed stadium (the Astrodome) and become pioneers in moveable structures, particularly retractable roof sports stadia. They also designed the first (and only, as of 7/15/15) retractable playing field (also called a moving pitch) in North America.[1]

While the company originated as a family-owned structural engineering firm, they have since expanded their services to include comprehensive infrastructure engineering (civil, traffic, transportation, ITS, and water resources engineering) and transitioned leadership into an employee-owned company governed by a Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer (Dilip Choudhuri, 2015 - present; Raymond Messer 1992 - 2014).[2]
