SANTA ROSA -- North Bay engineering firm Carlenzoli Associates has merged with Redwood City-based giant BKF Engineers.
The new company, BKF/Carlenzoli Engineers, Surveyors and Planners, officially launched with the signing of the deal, which was the result of about a year of negotiations. BKF is responsible for many widely recognized projects including Sonoma Mountain Village in Rohnert Park and the U.C. Berkeley School of Business.
The Santa Rosa office will remain at 325 Tesconi Circle and is BKF’s first North Bay location. The company currently operates eight in the Bay Area, Sacramento and Orange County.
Carlenzoli Vice President Greg Hurd worked for BKF during college and said informal conversations concerning a merger have occurred over several years.
"The impetus behind the merger was a mutual desire to offer more services," Mr. Hurd said.
