CHA Consulting, Inc. is an international engineering consulting firm headquartered in Albany, New York. The firm was founded in 1952 by John Clarkson, P.E., in Boston, Massachusetts and focused on civil design work. The firm was subsequently purchased by Ronald Clough and renamed Clough & Associates. Ronald Clough then partnered with Bill Harbour and the firm was renamed Clough, Harbour & Associates, LLP.
Some of the firm’s first notable projects were work on Boston’s “Inner Belt” highway, and work on the Interstate Highways throughout the Northeast.
