Greenville-based engineering firm DEVITA has acquired Elm Engineering Inc., an engineering firm based in Charlotte, N.C.
Darren Springer, president of DEVITA, said in a statement Elm Engineering’s expertise in renewable energy and sustainable systems will add value to DEVITA’s commercial and institutional projects across the country.
Elm Engineering was the first engineering firm in the Charlotte area to focus on sustainable engineering, energy efficiency, LEED consulting, and commissioning, according to a press release.
Kim Humiston, Elm’s president, will be joining DEVITA as a principal.
“Darren and our new colleagues at DEVITA share our values and way of doing business — we’re looking forward to offering more talent, experience, and bandwidth to our current and new clients,” Humiston said in a statement.
Springer wouldn’t disclose the price of the acquisition but said that it’s part of DEVITA’s continued growth strategy. The firm, which launched in 1984, recently opened offices in Atlanta and Petersburg, Va.
According to the company’s website, DEVITA provides a full range of mechanical, electrical, and structural engineering services, including specialized structural precast design and detailing.
