Who We Are


Our Mission
TRACE is an AEC advocacy group focused on promoting its member businesses through collaboration and engaging events.


TRACE is an association of Toledo area architectural, engineering and construction firms, capable of providing a full range of design and construction services to meet the needs of commercial, industrial, institutional and governmental clients.

We do this through collaborative alliances among TRACE members to meet client and project-specific requirements, while delivering best-in-class service and value. To see one example of how TRACE works check out master plan unveiled for redevelopment of Jeep property.

Our goal is to promote the prosperity and growth of participating firms, as well as our communities, by forming collaborative alliances appropriate to each client and project, and by nurturing the development of future talent through engagement with local universities, colleges and public school systems. TRACE’s participants include:

  • Firms that engage in building and industrial process planning, and design and engineering projects
  • Construction firms that engage in buildings and the purchase and installation of industrial process equipment
  • Testing, surveying, environmental and other specialized consulting firms for the design and construction industry

TRACE’s mission and current activities are well documented in this Leadership Views article published by the Toledo Business Journal.
