BONITA SPRINGS — Southfield, Michigan-based Atwell Group, a national consulting, design, engineering and construction services company, has merged with area landscape architecture and civil engineering firm Waldrop Engineering.

Financial terms of the transaction for Bonita Springs-based Waldrop, which provides professional design and entitlement services throughout Florida and the Southeast, weren’t disclosed.

Founded in 2000, Waldrop has additional offices in Fort Myers, Sarasota Tampa and Orlando, according to a  statement, along with the newest location in Asheville, North Carolina.

I'm excited to be a part of Atwell’s employee-centric culture and contribute to their leadership, technical expertise and industry diversification."
