PBS Engineering and Environmental Inc. and HDJ Design Group, two consulting firms with offices in the Tri-Cities, are combining forces to offer expanded range of engineering services in Oregon and Washington.
The Portland-headquartered consulting firm is acquiring southwest Washington-based HDJ, effective April 1.
“Because we complement each other’s expertise and our cultures are compatible, combining our talented teams makes perfect sense,” said Guy Neal, President of PBS. “We’re building upon 15 years of collaboration between our firms.”
While PBS specializes in geotechnical, environmental, and industrial hygiene services, HDJ mainly provides civil engineering, planning, and land surveying services. Combining these two firms, which offer 60 years of experience together, allows both to expand their market share within the engineering industry.
“The scale and sheer complexity of the project allowed our two firms the opportunity to fully harmonize our capabilities,” said Gregory Jellison, Principal Engineer of HDJ.
Clients served include both private and public, such as the cities of Vancouver and Walla Walla, Clark County Public Works, Grant County PUD, Columbia Waterfront, and Aho Construction.
