GFA international

Founded in Palm Beach County in 1988, GFA International, Inc. was a full-service Engineering Firm providing Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Consulting, Construction Materials Testing and Inspections, Building Code Compliance, and Health & Safety Consulting Solutions. The entrepreneurial spirit and dedicated leadership of GFA’s founders, Frank Frione and Fred Kaub, helped the company to grow and expand its service offerings to numerous clients in the public and private sectors.

Headquartered in Delray Beach, GFA operated 6 offices strategically located to service clients throughout the State of Florida and beyond. Their staff of nearly 300 professionals was comprised of civil, structural, geotechnical, and environmental engineers, geologists, and industrial hygienists, construction inspectors and technicians; multi-discipline building code experts and support staff. The experience of their team presented a firm that was highly qualified to accomplish projects varying in size, scope, or complexity.

With an emphasis that has always been to aggressively pursue the interests of their clients, GFA forged a reputation within the engineering and construction community for their technical knowledge, rigorous standards and added value through innovative abilities. Their success was exhibited by their tenure with clients, many of whom they served for over 25 years.

GFA was acquired by UES in April of 2019.
