S&ME formed in 1973 when founders Glenn Futrell and Bob Owens began providing geotechnical and construction materials engineering services to clients. A decade later, in 1983, S&ME grew to a company of 500 employees in 15 offices across six southeastern states. This set the stage for even more. As the company expanded, we added several environmental services that in turn, increased our staff of experts. Today, S&ME is a thriving company of dedicated individuals with vast technical expertise throughout 30+ offices in 10 states. Looking back on our successes over the past 45+ years, we are most proud of our commitment to clients and service abilities which include: Civil Engineering, Construction Services, Environmental, Geotechnical, Planning + Design. Our breadth of service capabilities reinforces our diversity as a company and our success is largely in part from our people, their technical excellence, and our companywide purpose of helping our communities prosper.
S&ME firmly believes that to become successful, we must invest in people. We are independent and dynamic thinkers who enjoy finding solutions to complex problems. Our culture supports our reputation for excellence by promoting a spirit of teamwork and dedicated professionalism by which our client’s vision is made our top priority.
