DETROIT, Michigan — After opening its doors in Detroit in January, Burns & McDonnell is expanding its footprint downtown from 4,000 to 12,000 square feet to accommodate plans for doubling the size of its local team within the next two years and hiring more than 100 professionals within the next five years. The growth in the region is part of firm’s nationwide effort to hire more than 1,000 professionals annually.
“Detroit is growing and thriving in key industries with a focus on the future,” says Benjamin Nabozny, Detroit office leader for Burns & McDonnell. “As a Detroit native, I’m especially passionate about contributing to the development and success of our city. We’re immersing ourselves in helping our clients expand and upgrade critical infrastructure in the region, while adding local, top talent to our diverse team of professionals.”
The firm’s office space is located at 2111 Woodward Ave., by Comerica Park and the Fox Theatre. Backed by a nationwide network of multidisciplinary experience, the office provides a wide range of design-build, engineering, construction, consulting and environmental services for local utility, automotive, federal and restaurant and retail clients. Detroit employee-owners focus on upgrading energy infrastructure — generating support for expanded services and new businesses throughout the region. Nabozny says the team will continue expanding into commercial, manufacturing, restaurant and retail, aviation, water, environmental and transportation markets.
“We’re hiring a range of professionals — engineers, construction managers, technicians, project managers and beyond — across industries,” he says. “With a diverse, multidiscipline workforce and integrated team approach, we are able to uncover unique solutions for clients’ complex challenges.”
