CH2M HILL was founded in January 1946 in Corvallis, Oregon, as CH2M-a name derived from the initials of the company's four founders: Fred Merryfield, Holly Cornell, James Howland, and T. Burke Hayes. Some 25 years later, the company merged with Clair A. Hill and Associates to form CH2M HILL.

The idea for CH2M HILL began to grow in the mid-1930s as the three Oregon State College students - Cornell, Howland, and Hayes - came under the influence of their tremendously enthusiastic civil engineering professor, Fred Merryfield. Merryfield remained quite active with his students outside the classroom, and used that environment to plant the seed for an engineering partnership. After graduation and throughout World War II, Merryfield and his students maintained an active dialogue about a potential partnership. The post-war economy was ripe for qualified, experienced engineers, and Merryfield, Cornell, Howland, and Hayes were ready and eager to fill that need. With their complementary skills and temperaments, these four men provided the backbone and direction of the firm.

The goals of these founders were simple. Find clients who needed engineering or consulting solutions for their problems; solve those problems with technology, creativity, and ingenuity; find more clients and more projects; hire creative, bright people to deliver the work; and then share the benefits with them.
