Michigan firm expands into New York with merger

By Journal Staff


CANTON — C2AE, an architectural, engineering, and planning firm based in Lansing, Mich., has merged with engineering firm Burley-Guminiak & Associates, Consulting Engineers, P.L.L.C. (BGA) of Canton.

BGA’s 12 employees all joined C2AE. BGA has experience in municipal engineering, infrastructure planning, and environmental management services. The firm has a strong portfolio in water and wastewater design and construction, which complements C2AE’s expertise in that field, according to C2AE.

Founded in 1996, C2AE has more than 120 employees and additional locations in Grand Rapids, Gaylord, Escanaba, and Kalamazoo. The firm has projects in eight states and three countries outside the U.S.

The BGA merger is the C2AE’s second expansion in 2012. The firm opened its Kalamazoo office earlier this year.

“The merger will provide BGA’s current clients with the expertise and resources of a multi-disciplinary firm, while significantly enhancing C2AE’s capabilities in the engineering and architecture service areas,” C2AE Chairman and CEO Bill Kimble said in a news release. “BGA adds a number of specialty capabilities that not only broadens our services, but expands our client base and offerings to both C2AE’s and BGA’s existing clients, such as education, industrial, manufacturing, health care, and transportation markets.”
