Durham, N.C. — McAdams, a North Carolina-based engineering and design firm, announced the company’s expanded reach through its acquisition of Texas-based engineering and design firm, G&A Consultants (G&A). The firms will operate in Texas under a temporarily combined identity, G&A | McAdams, until fully transitioning to McAdams. During this transition McAdams will continue to operate under the name McAdams in North Carolina.
G&A Consultants is a 28-year-old multidisciplined consulting firm providing services in civil engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture and land planning services in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas region. The firm employs 43 professionals providing land development design services to private and public clients for single-family and multi-family residential projects, mixed-use developments, retail, office, commercial and educational projects, as well as infrastructure design for municipalities and other agencies.
McAdams’ acquisition of G&A was finalized on August 31, 2018, after a 12-month due-diligence process to ensure mutual alignment of corporate goals and cultural values. The newly combined firm will continue to cater to many of the largest, most notable projects in North Carolina and Texas through services such as land planning, landscape architecture, engineering, survey, environmental consulting and more. True to McAdams and G&A’s people-focused mission, all leadership and employees will be retained through the merger, capitalizing on both teams’ collective client-service experience.
“With G&A and McAdams’ remarkable industry expertise, this merger complements both firms’ combined talent and creative approach to projects,” said Robert J. Dollak, Jr., director of Dallas-Fort Worth at G&A | McAdams. “This union strengthens our ability to grow and flourish in Texas and beyond, both as individuals and as a company.”
The acquisition marks the first office for McAdams outside of North Carolina and will grow the firm of 215 employees to over 260. Over their last 39 years in business, McAdams has focused on large-scale commercial developments, residential communities, education campuses, municipal projects, energy companies and healthcare facilities.
“We are embarking on a new chapter for McAdams,” said Mike Munn, CEO of McAdams. “G&A and McAdams together are positioned to expand our abilities for our clients as we move forward. We will continue our vision of creating meaningful experiences through inspired design.”
Founder and Chairman, John McAdams adds, “The strength of our firm has always been in serving large-scale, fast-paced projects; and adding the great team at G&A provides us the opportunity to expand that capability into the growing DFW market.”
