Kansas City, 100
The first project for Henry Tammen, the “T” of HNTB, was the mechanical design of the Armour-Swift-Burlington Bridge in Kansas City, a unique vertical lift design.
A young Enoch Needles, the “N” of HNTB, was sent to New York to establish the firm’s first permanent office outside of Kansas City in 1922 to take advantage of the growing toll highway and bridge market.
The firm that later became HNTB was so impacted by the Great Depression that it even had to dismiss one of its later named partners, Ruben Bergendoff, the “B” of HNTB, who was the firm’s chief designer at the time.
