LJB Acquires Gorrill Palmer, Expands Infrastructure Team into Northeast

LJB has recently finalized the acquisition of Gorrill Palmer, an integrated land development, transportation and municipal engineering firm located in South Portland, Maine.

Gorrill Palmer has been providing quality professional services to clients throughout New England since 1998. Their team brings expertise in many facets of civil engineering, including site development design and permitting, municipal engineering, transportation planning and engineering, as well as construction observation across all its service lines.

The firm is well respected for its attention to detail and ability to consistently deliver high quality, innovative and cost-effective designs.

I am confident that our partnership will enhance our team and our ability to meet our clients’ needs.”

Rod Sommer, CEO of LJB, said, “Gorrill Palmer’s areas of expertise align perfectly with our existing infrastructure services. We are very excited to see how the synergies we’ve already seen in strategy, services and culture will help both our firms progress and better serve our clients in New England and throughout the Northeast.”
