LaBella Associates announces the acquisition of US Infrastructure of Carolina, Inc. (USI), a professional consulting engineering firm, with offices located in Charlotte and Greensboro. The acquisition will give LaBella Associates 17 office locations, including 4 in North Carolina.
USI has served the Carolinas for 22 years. Today, the firm employs 16 employees in Charlotte and Greensboro. As civil engineers, USI specializes in engineering for local governments and public agency clients. Many of their staff members come from the public sector, offering experience as stewards of public resources and infrastructure. In addition to engineers, their staff includes GIS professionals, designers, technicians, inspectors, and support personnel with expertise in transportation, water resources, and water distribution and collection disciplines.
All USI employees will be retained through the acquisition. For the immediate future, the USI team will maintain its current Charlotte office location on Arrowpoint Boulevard as LaBella works to create a unified office space in Charlotte.
“Our clients will continue to work with the same project team they know and trust,” said President Bob Wilson. “As part of LaBella, we will have a deeper bench with more resources, support, and expertise.” Those resources will include a full service team. LaBella Associates offers in-house mechanical, electrical, plumbing and civil engineering, bridge and highway engineering, planning, architecture and interior design, program management and environmental consulting. “LaBella’s philosophy is to develop partnerships: with our clients, our employees and community,” LaBella President Robert A. Healy said. “We’re very pleased to make our partnership with USI permanent.”
LaBella Associates now has a staff of over 50 employees in North Carolina. Welcome USI!
