Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams purchased Blakeway Corp.
Henrico County-based regional engineering firm Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams Inc. (KBJW) purchased Virginia Beach-based civil engineering firm Blakeway Corp., it announced Tuesday.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Blakeway acquisition is the firm’s second in six months, following its June purchase of Chesapeake-based Horton & Dodd PC.
“Blakeway is a natural fit, the final ‘puzzle piece’ of our growth strategy in the Hampton Roads market,” KBJW Chief Strategy Officer Jeff Hudson said in a statement. “As we developed our plan, we began looking at companies in the area that have proven success and will complement the work we’re already doing in the market.”
Founded in 2005, Blakeway provides planning, surveying, environmental, engineering, construction management and permitting services.
“For 16 years, Blakeway Corp. has been a product of hard work, vision and a team effort from dedicated staff,” Blakeway Corp. owner Valerie Blevins said in a statement. “In searching for the perfect fit for a Blakeway acquisition, KBJW provided not only a proven track record for success but also a commitment to the values that Blakeway highly regards.”
KBJW will merge its three Virginia locations into one office in the Greenbrier area in Chesapeake.
Founded in 1990, KBJW provides services including land planning, site design, landscape architecture, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, drainfield design, wetland delineation and land surveying. The company operates in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
