Carmichael Engineering has been acquired by Florida-based Universal Engineering Sciences. The acquisition marks the second deal in a month for UES and will grow its geotechnical expertise.
Carmichael Engineering, founded by J. Stephen Carmichael in 1997, has its main office and laboratory in Montgomery with branch offices and laboratories in Auburn and Midland City. The firm provides geotechnical, environmental and construction monitoring and testing services for public and private entities. The company has completed noteworthy projects such as the Auburn University Performing Arts Center, FedEx Distribution Center in Montgomery, Troy University North Endzone Project and the Ben E. Keith Foods Distribution Facility in New Brockton.
“We’re very excited to join forces with UES,” Carmichael said. “This acquisition allows our company to expand upon the services we provide, as well as offer a national footprint of support to our clients.”
UES CEO Dave Witsken says the expansion adds to his firm’s technical expertise. “UES is continuing to expand our reach in high-growth areas such as the Southeast, where significant infrastructure projects are increasing the demand for our services.”
UES currently offers geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing, building code compliance, threshold inspections and environmental consulting through its 3,400 professionals operating across more than 70 branches in the U.S. It consults on projects of all sizes for public and private clients.
