Highway management firm moving HQ out of Maryland Farms

Infrastructure engineers acquired Kentucky firm in 2010

Highway maintenance and engineering firm Infrastructure Corp. of America will relocate its headquarters from Maryland Farms to Brentwood space on the other side of Interstate 65 and the Davidson-Williamson county line.

ICA leaders have signed a lease for 17,000 square feet of space at the Brentwood Commons Office Park on Old Hickory Boulevard and will move about 80 people there next month. The move to the Boyle Investments- owned building comes a little more than two years after ICA acquired Kentucky-based engineering firm Florence & Hutcheson. The company had been based at 5110 Maryland Way, across the street from the YMCA, for  the past decade.

In all, 15-year-old ICA employs more than 600 people in 12 states. Officials expect their HQ headcounts to grow to more than 100 later this year because of “strategic expansion” moves.

“We are excited and proud to take this step and re-establish our headquarters in Nashville, where our company was founded, with our sights set on growth and maximizing our tremendous potential,” said CEO Butch Eley (pictured here). “Bringing our team together will contribute to better synergy, planning and execution of our mission to be the leading infrastructure solutions company in our industry.”

Eley founded ICA in 1998 along with David Rader and Tom Beasley, a founder of Corrections Corp. of America. The company contracts with government entities to maintain roads, bridges, rest areas and the like. It has more than 20 long-term asset maintenance management contracts and more than 500 engineering services contracts. Locally, it works on I-840 and sections of I-65 and I-40 for the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
