RALEIGH, N.C. — Mead & Hunt is opening a new office in Raleigh, N.C. The office will initially focus on providing highway and bridge design services to municipal and state clients. Mead & Hunt has more than 25 offices including East Coast locations in Lexington and Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Richmond, Va.; and Charleston, W.V. The company has provided transportation services since the 1940s.

“It has been at the top of our list of places to open a transportation office for many years,” said Rick Plymale, P.E., Vice President of Mead & Hunt. “With offices north and south of Raleigh, and a strong presence in this market – it only makes sense.”

“As a 30-year native to the area, I know firsthand all that Raleigh has to offer. The new location will expand Mead & Hunt’s geographic reach and allow my team to provide local services,” said Joel Lee, P.E., Raleigh Office Transportation Department Manager of Mead & Hunt. “It comes as no surprise that Raleigh is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country and we’re glad to be part of that growth.” He added that he anticipates his local clients will appreciate the expanded services available from Mead & Hunt.

Mead & Hunt provides professional services in planning, design, engineering and architecture serving markets nationwide that include aviation, dams and hydropower, food, industrial, military, municipal infrastructure, highways and bridges.

“The addition of the Raleigh office team is part of our commitment to continued expansion. We are very excited to have these top notch employees join Mead & Hunt,” said Andy Platz, President of Mead & Hunt. “The timing is right to make this move into North Carolina, and we are confident the new office will complement our thriving transportation engineering capabilities.”

Mead & Hunt employs about 500 people from more than 25 offices located in 18 states across the nation.
