Design firm Stantec acquires Street Smarts engineering company
North American design firm Stantec has acquired the assets of Street Smarts, a 60-person transportation and civil engineering company headquartered in Duluth, Georgia. The addition of this Atlanta-area firm further develops Stantec’s existing transportation practice in Georgia and the southeastern U.S.
“Street Smarts is a very good fit for our transportation practice,” says Bob Gomes, Stantec president and chief executive officer.
“It has an impressive 20-year track record in Georgia spanning commercial development to state-wide transportation projects and will help build our capabilities in this growing transportation market.”
Street Smarts president Marsha Anderson Bomar said Stantec’s reputation in transportation and sustainable design “connects us to a whole new system of resources for our clients.
“We’ll be able to leverage its extensive design resources with our experience, weaving our networks together to branch into new areas and markets that we could not have reached on our own.”
Stantec currently has offices in McDonough and Macon, Georgia. The company’s transportation group provides comprehensive planning, engineering and infrastructure management services for the aviation, bridge, rail, roadway and transit sectors. The addition of Street Smarts is Stantec’s ninth acquisition of the year.
Stantec provides professional consulting services in planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management and project economics for infrastructure and facilities projects.
