Klingner & Associates, P.C. (Klingner) has acquired Verbeke-Meyer Consulting Engineers (Verbeke-Meyer) of Davenport, IA. Joining a firm over 100 employees strong, Verbeke-Meyer will provide expanded professional services to the Quad Cities as Klingner’s Davenport location.
Verbeke-Meyer was founded in 1976 to provide practical, cost-effective solutions by integrating creative concepts with traditional practices. In addition to residential, commercial, and institutional projects, the firm has left its mark by providing a number of street, wastewater, and water supply services to municipalities throughout the area. The office is run by co-founder David Meyer, PE, PLS, who will remain with the firm along with the rest of Verbeke-Meyer’s professional staff.
“Following the initial meeting and carrying on through subsequent meetings with various staff members, it was apparent that the Klingner work philosophy of providing prompt professional service and personal attention to all clients meshed with the Verbeke-Meyer philosophy,” said Meyer. “This merger will allow us to provide a more extensive scope of services to our current clients and to prospective clients.”
Klingner will continue to assist Verbeke-Meyer’s current clientele. The firm, which was founded in 1905 and is owned by the Klingner family and over 20 licensed professional associates, strives to provide excellent services which anticipate and meet the needs of their clients and benefit the community. Through proactive project management, a multidisciplinary approach, and regular communication, Klingner yields comprehensive design solutions clients can trust. Over 185 communities in the past 10 years alone have chosen Klingner’s expertise in civil, transportation, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, water distribution, wastewater, and water resources engineering, as well as their architecture, land surveying, and geotechnical investigation services. Klingner’s offices are located in Quincy, IL; Galesburg, IL; Burlington, IA; Pella, IA; Hannibal, MO; and Columbia, MO, and their work has been recognized by the American Consulting Engineers Council and the American Society of Civil Engineers, among others.
“Verbeke-Meyer matches well with our existing services,” said CEO Mike Klingner, PE. “We are extremely pleased to have Dave Meyer, PE, PLS, and his outstanding staff join our team of professionals serving Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois.”
