DETROIT — With a long history of working in Detroit, Giffels-Webster Engineers announced it has received official certification from the city confirming its Detroit office as the company’s headquarters. The 62-year-old civil engineering and surveying firm expanded its existing Detroit office space. It houses the executive offices and accounting department, as well as teams of civil engineers and surveyors — making it the company’s largest office.

“The timing was right to move our headquarters to Detroit,” said Scott Clein, P.E., LEED AP, president of Giffels-Webster Engineers. “We’ve been a Detroit-based business for more than 16 years and have been a part of many great projects. We feel the best way to truly show our commitment is to be headquartered in the heart of Detroit.”

Some of Giffels-Webster’s Detroit projects include Children’s Hospital of Michigan Pediatric Specialty Clinic, Detroit Public Schools’ Denby High School and Finney-Crockett High School, Southwest Detroit Greenlink, Garden View Estates, the West Vernor Streetscape, and surveying projects such as the Wayne County Remonumentation Program and Wayne County Consolidated Jail Facility.

Giffels-Webster worked with the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (DEGC) on its headquarters status.

The company also has two branch offices in Oakland and Macomb counties.
