Montrose, Colo. — DOWL HKM, a full service planning and engineering firm, announced the addition of Buckhorn Geotech, a 25 person civil, structural, and geotechnical engineering firm to its portfolio. 

Buckhorn is headquartered in Montrose and Gunnison, Colo., and has a strong presence on the Western Slope that will help solidify DOWL HKM’s position in Colorado. DOWL HKM will merge its Montrose office with Buckhorn’s office. This will result in three DOWL HKM offices in Colorado.

DOWL HKM President Stewart G. Osgood, P.E., said the acquisition makes strategic sense, but more importantly benefits both DOWL HKM and Buckhorn’s clients.

“Buckhorn brings additional, local experience to our Colorado clients,” said Osgood. “At the same time, DOWL HKM offers Buckhorn’s clients a full-service firm. We are going to do our best to delight them with our expanded services so they’ll choose us for all of their project needs.”  

DOWL HKM now has 24 offices with 425 employees throughout Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Oregon, North Dakota, Washington and Wyoming. DOWL HKM is a full-service firm offering tribal, private sector, and public sector clients a full-suite of environmental and land development, civil, transportation, water/water resources, and geo-construction services.
