He said this acquisition strengthens and expands the intersection of Woolpert’s core services—architecture, engineering, geospatial (AEG), and strategic consulting—specific to client need.

“We welcome this diverse group of dedicated and talented consultants, who support our nation’s schools as they plan and operate their districts for the betterment of students and communities,” Churman said. “Together, we will elevate and expand K-12 facility assessment, planning, funding, and program management for schools and districts across the country. We are very excited to have this outstanding team on board.”
