Texas Construction News from Virtual Builders Exchange
Austin (Travis County) - Trihydro Corporation, a national provider of environmental and engineering services, has acquired the Texas-based consulting firm River City Engineering.
The acquisition supports Trihydro’s continued expansion into Texas and enhances the company’s ability to serve the region with its environmental and engineering capabilities, including water and wastewater services.
The companies have long-standing track records of delivering successful engineering and environmental consulting services. River City specializes in water and wastewater services, as well as street and drainage design services for clients in Central Texas. These specialties will complement and further strengthen Trihydro’s existing civil, infrastructure, water and wastewater engineering, planning, restoration, development, and protection services locally and nationwide.
With this acquisition, Laramie, Wyoming-based Trihydro’s network of offices grows to 20 nationwide, with the inclusion of River City's Austin and New Braunfels locations.
Trihydro also recently opened an office in Amarillo to better serve clients in that region. The company looks forward to continuing to provide quality services, and sharing the dedication of its employees with the local communities and surrounding region.
Trihydro President and CEO Jack Bedessem said, “The acquisition of River City is an excellent fit with Trihydro’s strategic goals. We are on a path to strengthen and expand our infrastructure engineering capabilities and to offer a broader range of engineering services to our clients across the country.
"The addition of River City’s excellent team of engineers, surveyors, and support staff significantly enhances our regional resources and technical capabilities.”
Pat Lackey, P.E., a River City co-principal, said, “This is an exciting time for our staff and clients. River City’s focus has been to provide outstanding client service with a quality work product. We are particularly pleased to be joining a firm whose culture and commitment to its employees, clients, and community align so well with ours.
"Joining the Trihydro team will allow us to bring a greatly expanded array of services, such as environmental compliance and management to our existing client base,” Lackey added.
Pat Lackey has operated River City in conjunction with co-principal Barbara Lackey, P.E. The firm was established in 1990.
