The Wallace Group History
Scott Wallace, R.G., President/Principal Geologist and native Oregonian, originally founded the Bend-based geoenvironmental practice for a large national engineering firm in 1997. In 2000, Emeritus Principal Geotechnical Engineer, Mark Herbert, P.E., joined the firm and over the past 17 years the organization has grown and flourished with multidisciplinary professional staff becoming the recognized experts regarding Central Oregon’s geosystem, and providing clients throughout the Pacific Northwest with practical, Applied Earth and Environmental Science solutions.  In 2010, Scott Wallace purchased the practice and renamed the firm The Wallace Group, Inc.  The firm is certified through the state of Oregon as an Emerging Small Business and currently employs a staff of 15.

 With over 200 years of combined experience in the geoscience consulting and construction industry, Wallace Group’s staff have accumulated a wealth of experience and developed an enthusiastic culture focused on applying earth science and engineering principals to solve infrastructure and natural resource challenges.  “We exist to serve our clients, communities, and employees by providing an environment where honesty, teamwork, integrity, innovation and technical expertise are recognized”, said Wallace.  The firm prides itself on contributing practical solutions that create value for projects of all sizes and enrich the quality of life in the communities we serve.  “We are committed to our Central Oregon clients and the loyal employees who have helped us to build a successful practice over the past 20 years”, said Wallace.  The Wallace Group’s focus contributes to the local economy and provides clients and citizens east of the Cascade Range with extensive technical knowledge and applied experience in the practice of geotechnical engineering, geology, environmental science, hydrogeology, environmental compliance, and construction inspection/materials testing.
