Posted on January 9, 2019

Global infrastructure and engineering firm Gannett Fleming acquired Chicago’s Bowman, Barrett & Associates Inc. (BB&A). The 30-year-old consulting firm now operates as BB&A, a business group of Gannett Fleming.

“This marks Gannett Fleming’s third acquisition in the past six months, and each new addition strategically positions us to thrive in a rapidly changing marketplace,” said Bob Scaer, PE, Gannett Fleming chairman and CEO.

BB&A’s team has worked on transportation operations, transit and rail, structures, construction management, and aviation projects across the greater Chicago area and the Midwest. In the coming year, this group will combine with the existing Gannett Fleming Chicago office.

BB&A has been a trusted advisor to many Chicago-area clients, including the Illinois Department of Transportation, Metra, the City of Chicago, the Illinois Tollway, Class I Railroads, and local governments
