Olsson Associates acquires Scott Consulting Engineers

Posted online
Omaha, Neb.-based Olsson Associates has acquired Springfield engineering consulting firm Scott Consulting Engineers.
Olsson Associates acquired Scott Consulting Engineers Monday, according to a news release from Olsson, and SCE is being renamed Scott Consulting Engineers, a division of Olsson Associates. The company will fully take on the Olsson Associates name at the beginning of 2011, according to the Scott Engineers Web site, which now automatically redirects to the Web site for Olsson.

Scott staff members will remain in their current office at 550 St. Louis St., according to the news release, and Olsson staff will move from its offices on East Republic Road later this year.

According to previous Springfield Business Journal coverage, the company had planned to build new offices in Terra Green Office Park on Blackman Road. Officials say a Terra Green move is still in the company's long-term plans.

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

"We are excited about the opportunity to join Olsson and what it will mean for our clients and for our staff,” Scott Consulting owner and founder Dick Scott said in the release. “We’ll have the additional staff and resources we need to grow and provide quality services to our clients.”

Scott founded SCE in 1980, according to previous coverage, to focus on civil and municipal engineering projects. Olsson Associates, a 2008 Springfield Business Journal Economic Impact Award honoree for engineering, was founded in 1956 and opened its Springfield office in 2005.[[In-content Ad]]
