Kleinfelder, a global science, architecture and engineering consulting firm, has announced the acquisition of Corrigan Consulting Inc. (CCI), a Houston-based firm specializing in environmental and professional engineering services.

“After taking a close look at CCI’s operations, it quickly became apparent that they are a perfect fit to help Kleinfelder achieve our 2015 strategic direction,” says Donald Pomeroy, senior vice president at Kleinfelder. “CCI will bring additional environmental regulatory compliance services, as well as strong existing relationships with clients in the industrial, municipal, energy and transportation markets. Together, we’ll be better able to serve our collective clients in the Texas region and throughout the world.”

Founded by Gail Corrigan in 1986, CCI’s environmental consulting services have grown steadily to encompass everything from regulatory compliance for air quality, solid waste and hazardous waste; soil and ground water assessment and remediation; and environmental planning and permitting. At the time of the acquisition, CCI employed 18 professionals, all of which will be retained and work under the Kleinfelder name out of CCI’s existing Houston office.

“Kleinfelder is a very reputable firm, and we are thrilled about the opportunities that will be presented to us as part of their team,” says Corrigan. “Kleinfelder will provide our clients global resources and a diverse set of services, knowledge and experience. As partners, our combined resources will strengthen our ability to deliver the innovative market solutions our respective clients have come to expect.”

Kleinfelder has been executing a strategic growth plan since 1992, and environmental services have been, and will continue to be, an important aspect of overall company growth. With the acquisition of CCI, Kleinfelder is adding a Houston office to its existing five offices in the state of Texas, which include Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, McKinney, Waco and Corpus Christi.
