CHANTILLY, VA. — Bowman Consulting has acquired the Virginia operations of Bury+Partners, a civil engineering and water resources firm based in Austin, Texas. The respective leaders of Bowman and Bury+Partners have had a strong relationship for many years. The deal solidifies Bowman’s interest in expanding its service portfolio to include water and wastewater design. Bury+Partners’ sale of its Virginia operations is part of an overall strategic effort to further expand its strong presence within Texas and other regional markets as dictated by its national client base.

The Bowman office in Williamsburg, Va., will continue to be led by Kenneth Baybutt, P.E., a 30-year industry veteran and expert in project design and construction. Prior to directing the Bury+Partners Williamsburg office, Baybutt was on staff at the Virginia Department of Health where he reviewed and approved water and wastewater treatment plant system designs and conducted on-site inspections of wastewater treatment plans and water well systems. Baybutt and his team will continue to work out of the new Bowman Consulting offices located at 4095 Ironbound Road, Suite 200.

“For several years we have wanted to add water and wastewater design to our suite of capabilities and are excited by the high-quality employees we now welcome to Bowman,” said Gary Bowman, P.E.
