Opportunities Ahead: SEH and Russell Planning & Engineering Merge

August 1, 2019

It’s official.

SEH and Russell Planning & Engineering (RPE), a southwest Colorado firm, merged companies on August 1, 2019.

The merger uses the strengths of both companies to deliver greater value for clients and employees. With that, we are stronger. Together we offer a wider array of specialized engineers, architects, planners and scientists as well as additional services to clients. For our employees, there’s more opportunity to work in different locations across the SEH office landscape which covers nine states.

SEH believes as a combined company, we are better positioned to provide a full slate of services to our clients in Colorado and Wyoming as well as neighboring states.
SEH CEO/President David Ott

Established in 2001, RPE serves clients in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. Their client types range from owners of multi-million-dollar ski villages, commercial and residential developers, oil and gas companies to municipalities, counties, state organizations and federal agencies. Their services include planning and development, entitlement services, landscape design, civil engineering, road and street design, water resources, transportation planning, highway design and construction management.

The merger of SEH and RPE is rooted in the common beliefs of building and sustaining long-term client relationships, delivering what is promised and providing an environment where employees can do their best work and have the opportunity to grow their careers.

“SEH believes as a combined company, we are better positioned to provide a full slate of services to our clients in Colorado and Wyoming as well as neighboring states,” says SEH CEO/President David Ott. “We now have the opportunity to offer planning and land development services for business and public clients in the Rocky Mountain states. For both public and private clients, we can help turn ideas into plans, stakeholders into believers and sites into developed opportunities.”

In conclusion, Ott states, “We look forward to integrating these two great companies. We are excited for the many excellent opportunities ahead to expand services to more clients, develop our people and grow our business while Building a Better World for All of Us®.”
