In October 2011, Winzler & Kelly merged with GHD, one of the world’s leading engineering, architecture and environmental consulting companies, enhancing its ability to provide unique, client-focused solutions.

Winzler & Kelly joins GHD’s network of more than 8500 practitioners serving clients from 100+ offices worldwide in the global markets of water, energy and resources, environment, property and buildings, and transportation. GHD’s strong client-centered culture and collaborative approach mesh well with Winzler & Kelly’s reputation for providing sustainable, innovative services to clients for more than 60 years.

At the time of the merger with GHD, Winzler & Kelly was a multi-disciplinary professional services firm providing engineering, environmental, construction management, and sustainable design services to clients in diverse markets that perfectly complemented GHD’s. Winzler & Kelly was known for providing clients with smart, contextual solutions by leveraging the deep technical knowledge of more than 300 employees. While operating from offices throughout California, Oregon and the Pacific, Winzler & Kelly was distinguished as one of the best engineering firms to work for by various local and national industry media outlets.

Iver Skavdal, former CEO of Winzler & Kelly says, “This merger benefits both our firms. It allows us to offer increased innovation and efficiency to our clients and more professional development opportunities to our staff through a network of global resources, while also strengthening GHD’s offering in the Americas. We look forward to remaining a local business while providing a global network of resources to our clients and the communities we serve.”

Richard Wankmuller, GHD’s General Manager of the Americas says, “With Winzler & Kelly’s great experience and capabilities comes great people. Their leadership team includes some of the best leaders I have worked with throughout the world and they augment the fantastic leadership we already have in place at GHD. The firm has been perennially recognized for excellence and innovation, most recently for the Middle Harbor Restoration project at the Port of Oakland and the City of Santa Rosa’s sustainably designed Utilities Field Office campus. I am confident that all of our clients can look forward to high quality local service, with the support of global technical resources available through GHD’s highly collaborative network of talented people.”
