Pennsylvania-headquartered bridge design and engineering firm Modjeski and Masters (M&M) has opened a new office in Raleigh. The office is the firm’s only location in the state, its 11th location overall and its second new office in the past nine months. This highlights the firm’s continued growth, as well as its dedication to the North Carolina region, Triangle Business Journal reports.
The office opened two weeks ago and is currently occupied by two employees, led by WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff Engineering Services’ veteran Jason Doughty. By next year, M&M hopes to expand the office staff to 10.
Doughty has thorough knowledge and experience working in both traditional and design-build projects. He has served as a bridge engineer on a wide range of projects including new and replacement bridge designs, existing bridge rehabilitations, including historic bridges, and fatigue and seismic evaluations.
The company’s only NCDOT (North Carolina Department of Transportation) active project right now is the Elizabeth City Bascule Bridges Project in Elizabeth City, currently in its final stages.
Doughty says though the plan is to increase the project count by “a handful” this year.
Recent Modjeski and Masters’ projects in North Carolina and surrounding areas include:
- Elizabeth City Bascule Bridges Project – Elizabeth City, N.C.
- Gilmerton Bridge Replacement – Chesapeake, Va.
- Wrightsville Beach Bridge deck replacement – Wrightsville, N.C.
- Cape Fear Bascule Bridge Rehabilitation – Cape Fear, N.C.
- Cape Fear Lift Bridge Rehabilitation – Cape Fear, N.C.
