Thompson Engineering has announced that the principals of Solid Civil, an engineering firm in the Birmingham, Alabama area, have joined the firm. Johnny Carr, PE, Greg Lowe, PE, and Matt Chelette, PE, will strengthen Thompson’s transportation design service offerings to clients across the Southeast.
“As Thompson strengthens our capabilities in Alabama, we are building on our ability to pursue projects from South Carolina and east Tennessee to Mississippi and south Louisiana,” said Thompson Engineering CEO Jimmy Shumock. “We are looking to build our team of transportation design experts to provide the Thompson quality of service across the Southeast, and the Solid Civil staff is a perfect fit.”
Solid Civil was formed in 2003 in Helena, Alabama. Project experience includes a state-wide engineering contract with ALDOT and a roadway design contract with MDOT. “We’ve been committed to these clients for more than a decade and are excited to continue to work with them,” said Carr. “We’re even more excited to offer new services now through the diversity of Thompson Engineering.”
Thompson Engineering will immediately begin operations in the former Solid Civil offices located at 173 Tucker Rd. in Helena, Alabama offering a complete range of services.
