S&ME, a Raleigh company that does engineering, environmental and construction services, announced this week that it is acquiring Littlejohn, a Nashville, Tenn.-based design firm.
The combination of the two privately held firms will create a company with more than 1,100 employees in the more than 30 locations in the U.S. S&ME employs 950 people, including 137 in Raleigh.
The deal is expected to be completed on Dec. 31. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
Littlejohn, which has more than 130 employees, is to become a wholly owned subsidiary of S&ME. It will retain its name.
“Joining these two companies works on many different levels and creates a firm with a broad footprint that can be a single resource to clients facing complex building and development challenges,” Randy Neuhaus, S&ME’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “Today’s architecture, engineering and construction industry demands that engineering and design firms provide a complete spectrum of professional, sophisticated and cutting-edge services. By acquiring Littlejohn, S&ME is creating that firm.”
