Our Philosophy

From our headquarters in Austin, Texas, AmaTerra’s staff of archaeologists, architectural historians, biologists, ecologists, and NEPA specialists contribute to projects spanning the Continental United States (CONUS) and Alaska, Hawaii, and Guam.  With satellite offices in Las Cruces, New Mexico; and San Antonio, Dallas, and Cedar Park, Texas, our team is ready to go

 any time... any where!

Our Heritage

AmaTerra was founded as a woman-owned small business in 2011.  In 2012, AmaTerra acquired Ecological Communications Corporation (EComm) a highly-successful Austin firm established in 1998. Along with retaining all staff and professional experience, AmaTerra was able to expand our capabilities through this acquisition.  With a history of highly-successful and award-winning projects that range from high-profile excavations at Zilker Park in Austin to NEPA Environmental Assessments on military installations,

 our reputation remains our strongest asset.

Effective communication is imperative to success.  It is in that skill that we stand head and shoulders above the rest.  We research, collect, and analyze the information that is most important, and effectively present that information with your project needs in mind.  You can rely on us to be the confident professionals who will be

 your most dedicated advocates.

Our Success

Our superlative work is exemplified through a mutli-award-winning heritage that includes the National Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History, three individual Texas Historical Commission Award of Merit recipients, and a Fort Bliss Annual Environmental Quality Award.  Our greatest success, though, is receiving  that second, third, fourth... and hundredth new project from our clients.  Our most effective marketing tool

 is a job well done.

While we are based in Texas, our staff's range of experience stretches from Coast to Coast (and almost everywhere in between!).  With 33 states under our collective belt (including Hawai'i), we are diverse, versatile, and effective in any region.  

Let AmaTerra apply that amassed knowledge toward bringing you the most professional, pleasant, and competent working relationship you have ever known.
