V T ASSOCIATES...a professional projects controls firm MBE/DBE Certified

History

Glenn Hicks, founder of V T Associates, started a consulting firm, Glenn Hicks Consulting, in 1999 in Las Vegas, NV. The business was run from his kitchen table like many start-up companies. He had no partners and very few opportunities because the competition was fierce.

After moving to Illinois in 2002 he realized that the dream of providing project controls services had been indelible painted on his conscious. Within a year he incorporated V T Associates, Inc. and allowed it to reside dormant in the confines of a notebook for the better part of nine years.

Then in 2012 the drive to revive the dream was prompted by opportunities in several sectors of the construction industry. Through former contacts, V T Associates received the nod through negotiatons to provide scheduling services with a local contractor on the Metra Englewod Flyover.

V T Associates personnel trained employees of several local commercial construction firms in basic scheduling and the use of Primavera software. Later we contracted to consult with a Canadian firm on best practices for training new users of their choice on software on projects in the Oilsands of Alberta Canada.
