(who we are)
Larry M. Jacobs & Associates, Inc. (LMJ) is a veteran-owned small business that specializes in providing professional geotechnical engineering, drilling, and materials testing and inspection services. LMJ is the only locally operated and longest standing geotechnical firm in our area and has successfully completed over 7,000 projects in our local community.
Using specialized local experience, LMJ is dedicated to providing innovative and responsive solutions to help our clients be more successful. Our core values of teamwork, excellence, and honesty underscore our commitment to our clients and provides unwavering direction for everything we do.
Larry went to college at the University of Illinois to become an aerospace engineer, but after learning that “the math was too hard”, Larry switched to civil engineering, focusing in soil mechanics where he studied under Dr. Ralf Peck, a world leader in geotechnical engineering.
Our company was founded by Larry M. Jacobs, PE in 1976 in Pensacola, Florida with Larry working out of a small office on Palafox Street. Since then, LMJ has grown to become the local go-to firm for geotechnical engineering and materials testing.
