WICHITA — Taylor RyMar Corp. has moved, but not far.
The Tempe, Ariz.-based firm, which does engineering consulting for the construction industry, has been at the Orpheum Centre at First and Broadway since its arrival in Wichita in 2007.
“We needed to consolidate space,” says principal owner Joel DeHaven.
Except his real estate contacts couldn’t reach the owner of the floor of his building.
“The owner of our floor apparently was in bankruptcy,” DeHaven says.
Real Development bought the building in 2006 and then sold some of the floors.
“We like being downtown,” DeHaven says. “We wanted to stay in that same area.”
The company, which specializes in electrical engineering out of the Wichita office, moved to about 1,200 square feet at the Market Centre at First and Market streets this week.
