HDR Engineering Inc. has purchased the assets of Ecosystem Management & Associates Inc. for an undisclosed amount, HydroWorld.com has learned.
EM&A is a "woman-owned firm" based in Lusby, Md., that provides "environmental services, including coastal zone management, military range sustainability, pollution studies and management, and environmental conflict resolution and outreach," according to a company release.
HDR Engineering President Eric Keen says the two companies got to know each other while "working for our mutual clients" and that those experiences were what prompted the Omaha-based consulting firm to acquire EM&A.
HDR is an international firm that specializes in architecture, engineering, consulting, construction and related services.
HydroWorld.com reported in May that Juliusz Kirejczyk had joined HDR as a senior consultant in its hydropower services group.
The company was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in February for evaluations at three hydropower plants along the Savannah River.
