DLZ has announced today the acquisition of WMB Consulting Engineers. Formerly known as Wright, Morgan, and Brown, WMB Consulting Engineers specializes in the planning and design of rural and urban highways, interstates, and bridges. WMB has been serving clients in the Commonwealth of Kentucky since 1957.

The acquisition of WMB demonstrates DLZ’s continued growth strategy to meet the increase in demand for transportation engineering services in the Midwest region. With existing DLZ offices in Louisville and Frankfort, this acquisition expands the firm’s footprint in the market, offering a larger local presence to serve clients in Kentucky. Vikram (Raj) Rajadhyaksha, CEO of DLZ, stated, “WMB’s exemplary professional engineers are an exciting addition to our team and they bring decades of experience in designing signature projects for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC).”

A family- and minority-owned firm, DLZ ranks among the nation’s top consulting firms in the architectural/engineering industry and has grown to be a nationally-recognized firm. In 2016, DLZ was named by Engineering News-Record (ENR) Midwest as Design Firm of the Year. In 2017, ENR also ranked DLZ as one of the Top 100 Pure Design Firms in the United States and the 8th largest in the Midwest. For more information, please visit www.wmbinc.com.
