A long-time engineering and environmental consulting firm will remain in town after being acquired by an East Coast company.

Norwood, Massachusetts-based GZA GeoEnvironmental said today that Grand Rapids-based Rose & Westra will operate as a division of GZA.

Rose & Westra, founded in 1990, offered a variety of services: commercial and industrial real estate property assessments; environmental process design; wastewater management; site development and redevelopment; regulatory compliance; and environmental investigation and remediation.

Rose & Westra partners Bryan Rose and Mark Westra will join GZA as principals, and their staff will continue to serve clients.

GZA said it will consolidate its staff in the market with Rose & Westra's staff into “a single location within a few months.”

“Their diverse experience and consulting expertise will allow us to grow and enhance our existing services in the western Michigan area and throughout the entire Midwest and Great Lakes regions,” said William Hadge, CEO, GZA GeoEnvironmental.


GZA GeoEnvironmental, founded in 1964, provides environmental, geotechnical, ecological, water and construction management services.

The employee-owned firm has more than 550 employees in 27 offices in the eastern portion of the U.S.
