Natick, MA (August 8, 2023) – Atwell, a national consulting, engineering, and construction services firm, acquired Bay Engineering, an engineering, surveying, and environmental firm headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland.

Bay Engineering specializes in land development services for both public and private clients throughout Central and Southern Maryland. This acquisition will continue to strengthen Atwell’s presence in the Mid-Atlantic.

“Alignment of mission and values is incredibly important to us,” said Tim Martin, President of Bay Engineering. “It’s clear to us that Atwell delivers high-quality results to their clients, with value placed on thorough communication and accuracy. We’re excited to expand our services to our clients and provide new opportunities for our employees.”

“A shared passion for our work and a client-centric approach made this acquisition a great fit,” said Bill Anderson, Atwell’s Senior Vice President of Land Development in the U.S. East. “As Atwell’s presence continues to grow, so does our ability to deliver top-quality services to the local community.
