Geosyntec Consultants, a consulting and engineering firm working in environmental, natural resources and civil infrastructure applications, announced the acquisition of Applied Technology and Management (ATM), an engineering and consulting firm focused on coastal, waterfront and water resources projects.
The acquisition provides Geosyntec’s clients increased access to experts in the United States and Dubai to create innovative, high-value solutions for coastal and inland resiliency and adaptation. Additionally, this partnership provides ATM’s clients with the expanded capabilities of Geosyntec’s worldwide team of multidisciplinary experts.
“The addition of ATM’s specialized expertise in the coastal and waterfront disciplines complements Geosyntec’s core capabilities,” says Peter Zeeb, Ph.D., P.G., president and CEO of Geosyntec. “The combined team’s capabilities offer preferred-provider solutions for resiliency and adaptation of natural and built environments in the vicinity of coastal and inland water bodies for our clients in the United States and internationally. Very importantly, ATM and Geosyntec have shared values and company cultures.”
“Geosyntec and ATM are aligned in culture,” agrees Sam Phlegar, president and principal engineer of ATM, “and we are excited about the possibility of leveraging the established reputations of both our firms, delivering coastal and marina engineering services to a wider geographic footprint and expanding our service skillsets to our clients.”
ATM will operate as “ATM, a Geosyntec Company.” ATM’s team brings an expanded range of complementary capabilities to Geosyntec and working together allows the companies to provide even more solutions to clients in coastal resiliency and adaptation, waterfront development and redevelopment, and other adjacent markets such as offshore wind, offshore pipelines and conveyances, and ports and harbors.
