Amidst the economic turmoil of one of the worst recessions ever experienced by the building industry – and shortly after his successful summit of Mount Everest - Rohan A. Freeman, PE, LS founded Freeman Companies, LLC in 2009.  In the years since, this multi-disciplinary, Hartford-based land development, engineering design and construction services firm has thrived.  Freeman Companies specializes in owner’s representation, civil engineering, landscape architecture, traffic and transportation engineering, bridge and structure enginering, utilities engineering, permitting, land surveying, geotechnical engineering, environmental sciences, hazardous building materials services, and construction engineering and inspection for projects in the governmental, educational, commercial, industrial, institutional and infrastructure markets.  Current work ranges from geotechnical engineering on the $ 250 million South Hartford Conveyance and Storage Tunnel for MDC to full-service planning and design for creation of the Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy at the famed Learning Corridor and urban planning, transportation and roadway design for the iQuilt/Intermodal Triangle Initiative.

Freeman Companies is a growing, African-American owned small business, driven by our promise to clients and owners to Elevate Your Expectations.  This promise has led the company to retain nearly all of their clients through repeat business and to grow a robust roster of new clientele.  An innovative “integrated practice approach” offers multiple complimentary and coordinated land development services through a single provider, enabling sustainable, high quality land development in the most cost-effective and time-responsive manner possible.  This approach has resulted in the firm’s steady growth in new revenue, markets, employees, and professional services over the past eight years of practice.  

It has also enabled the firm to advance its social responsibility goals, including support of several community-based educational and human-service organizations and the establishment of the firm-endowed “Freeman Companies BRIDGE Endowed Engineering Scholarship” through the University of Connecticut Foundation.    Rohan Freeman, President and UCONN Alumnus says “Establishing this scholarship for deserving minority students from the cities of Hartford, Bridgeport, New Haven or Waterbury who have overcome socioeconomic and educational obstacles is a way of 'paying it forward' and sharing our success in communities that have always supported us.  We look forward to help shaping Connecticut’s next generations of engineers for many years to come.”

Freeman Companies is fully licensed in jurisdictions throughout New England and is certified as a DBE, SBE, MBE, and Federal SBA 8(a) professional consulting engineering enterprise.
