Throughout its extensive history, Morris + Associates, a Stratus Team Company, has successfully designed and secured permits for thousands of facilities worldwide. Originally specialists in the fuel industry serving major oil companies, we now cater to a diverse clientele, including sectors such as retail, food service, drug and grocery stores, fleet and vehicle maintenance, municipal, alternative fuel, and military. Over the past 50 years, we have expanded our expertise to provide a wide array of services to meet the evolving needs of our clients.

The engineers and architects at Morris + Associates are licensed in multiple states. We are familiar with the unique requirements to permit a single site or the roll out of a retail program on a large scale. As such, we have the background and experience to assist customers in dealing with the rapidly changing and frequently complicated codes and regulations that apply to the design, permitting and operation of facilities worldwide.

Founded in the early 1960s by Don K. Morris, Morris + Associates (M+A) is a family-owned engineering and architectural firm based out of the Houston area.  Don’s expertise originated in his military service as a Naval Sea Bee during World War II and later as an employee of Gulf Oil. In 1979, William K. (Bill) Morris joined the firm after graduating from Texas A & M University with a degree in Civil Engineering. With the retirement of Don Morris in 1994, Bill Morris became President of the company.

A second-generation family-owned business, Morris + Associates brings five decades of experience to every project we undertake. With extensive expertise in the areas of engineering, architectural, and environmental services, we are uniquely qualified to cost effectively design, permit, and manage the construction of your next project.
