Wantman Group Has Acquired Bridge Design Associates
A Principal Of 7 Mile Advisors Acted As The Buy-Side Advisor to Wantman Group In Their Acquisition Of Bridge Design Associates
In July 2015, leading multi-disciplinary consulting firm WGI announced its second acquisition in less than a year, acquiring Bridge Design Associates (BDA). Based in Royal Palm Beach, FL, BDA specializes in engineering services for buildings, bridges, ocean piers, marinas, docks, seawalls, and pump stations, and has worked on over 100 bridges around Florida. The transaction added 11 staff to WGI, including BDA founder Brian Rheault. “Our two businesses are complementary, and our corporate cultures are very compatible,” President David Wantman said. “By combining our strengths, we create new benefits for our clients through our ability to provide more comprehensive services under one roof, and to deliver a fully integrated range of expertise throughout the entire project life cycle.”
A current employee of 7 Mile Advisors provided valuation and M&A advisory services to WGI while at a previous firm.
