Amec buys American water and mining consulting firm

Amec announces today that it has acquired BCI Engineers and Scientists, a Florida-based consulting firm focused on the water and mining sectors.

BCI is a diversified environmental, water resources, geotechnical, civil and forensic engineering firm working predominantly in the water and mining sectors and was established over 30 years ago.  Headquartered in Lakeland, Florida, the company employs nearly 200 engineers, scientists and other professionals in seven offices. 

“This acquisition is consistent with our Vision 2015 growth strategy in the water and mining sectors, as well as expansion in the Southeast U.S.,” said Amec’s Earth & Environmental president Hisham Mahmoud. “BCI’s talented professionals, locations, services and excellent client relationships make the company a good fit for us.”

“By joining Amec, we will add value for our clients and our staff,” said BCI President Richard Powers.  “As part of a growing and dynamic global organisation, we will be able to better serve our clients nationally and internationally, while generating new technical and professional opportunities for our staff.” 

In addition to Florida, BCI has offices in Colorado, Michigan and Missouri.  BCI has performed exceedingly well, despite the lagging economy, and for the first time in 2010 made management and consulting research firm Zweig White’s “Hot Firm” list, which highlights the most successful architecture, engineering and environmental consulting firms in North America, based on revenue, growth and profitability.
