Since our founding in 1994 Lucas Engineering and Management Services (Lucas) has offered a broad array of engineering, project delivery, radiological and environmental, and operations services to the nuclear, environmental, and commercial industrial business sectors.


Lucas is headquartered in Richland, Washington with the majority of our multi-discipline staff located there.   While most of our work has been with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Hanford Site located near Richland, we have provided services to multiple other DOE sites across the country.  We have been involved in some of the most complex high-hazard projects in the DOE complex. In recent years we have expanded our services to the commercial industrial sector, as well as various environmental remediation projects across the country.   We are small enough to be responsive, agile, and cost effective, yet large enough to offer a powerful well-seasoned multi-disciplinary team.


Over the past 30 years Lucas earned a reputation with our clients as a highly ethical and reliable go-to source for resources and services in support of some of the most complex and challenging projects.


As President of Lucas, I built the company on unquestioned business ethics, client focused highperformance services, and a commitment to our employees. I am proud to have built and continue to maintain this reputation in the industry.
