Detroit, Feb. 2, 2012 – With a long history of working in Detroit, Giffels-Webster Engineers is proud to announce it has received official certification from the city confirming its Detroit office as the company’s headquarters.
The 62-year-old civil engineering and surveying firm expanded its existing Detroit office space at 28 W. Adams St., Suite 1200. It houses the executive offices and accounting department, as well as teams of civil engineers and surveyors — making it the company’s largest office.
“The timing was right to move our headquarters to Detroit,” said Scott Clein, PE, LEED AP, president of Giffels-Webster Engineers. “We’ve been a Detroit-based business for more than 16 years and have been a part of many great projects. We feel the best way to truly show our commitment is to be headquartered in the heart of Detroit.”
Some of Giffels-Webster’s Detroit projects include Children’s Hospital of Michigan Pediatric Specialty Clinic, Detroit Public Schools’ Denby High School and Finney-Crockett High School, Southwest Detroit Greenlink, Garden View Estates, the West Vernor Streetscape, and surveying projects such as the Wayne County Remonumentation Program and Wayne County Consolidated Jail Facility.
Giffels-Webster worked with the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (DEGC) on its headquarters status.
The company also has two branch offices in Oakland and Macomb counties.
