Gresham, Smith and Partners, a leading multi-disciplinary design and consulting firm for the built environment, today announces the official opening of a new office in Tallahassee, Fla. The firm, headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., currently operates four other Florida offices in Chipley, Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville and Tampa. Its newly established Tallahassee presence supports firmwide growth and transportation-industry business opportunities in north Florida and south Georgia. It improves GS&P’s service capabilities for the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Central Office, District 2 and District 3, as well as surrounding cities and counties.

“After much success with recent FDOT projects, our new Tallahassee office provides our Transportation market with a tremendous opportunity to expand our current practice and services and to pursue new local projects,” commented Marshall Elizer, executive vice president, Gresham, Smith and Partners. “Our staff is eager to utilize our new workspace to establish a local presence, become more engrained in the community and start working together with local stakeholders. With an office in Tallahassee, we’ll be able to better identify the infrastructure solutions that will support the economic development interests of the region and improve quality of life for residents.”

The Tallahassee office will be led by Tyler Strickland, P.E., a senior transportation engineer with a 12-year industry background, who was named as the 2012 Young Engineer of the Year by the Florida Engineering Society (FES) Big Bend Chapter. The office is located in the Cornerview Office Building at 2073 Summit Lake Drive, Suite 152, Tallahassee, Fla., 32317. The firm will maintain its Chipley office location, approximately 75 miles west of Tallahassee, to continue serving FDOT’s District 3 offices and other Panhandle-based clients in Florida and South Alabama. GS&P’s Chipley office is managed by former Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Chief Engineer, Bill Moore, P.E.

GS&P's Transportation professionals deliver comprehensive planning, design, environmental, architectural and construction-phase services for highway, transit, aviation and rail facilities. The staff of engineers, planners and scientists capitalizes on the firm's diverse blend of markets and disciplines to offer a truly integrated and sustainable approach that considers all perspectives and offers practical, forward-thinking solutions. The firm has provided engineering design services for the following recent and ongoing FDOT projects: U.S. 98 roadway improvements in Okaloosa County between Fort Walton Beach and Destin; Forest Highway 13 in Liberty and Wakulla Counties; SR 296, SR 173 and US 98 corridor improvements in Pensacola; and design of an Intelligent Transportation System along I-10/I-110 in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The firm also recently completed Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) safety projects in South Georgia and a signal timing project with the City of Dothan.
 

“Our staff is eager to utilize the new Tallahassee office to establish a local presence, become more engrained in the community and start working together with local stakeholders. Now, we’ll be able to better identify the infrastructure solutions that will support the economic development interests of the region and improve quality of life for residents.”
