Kleinschmidt Associates announces it has joined forces with R2 Resource Consultants.
Kleinschmidt is an engineering, regulatory and environmental consulting firm with a focus on renewable energy and 10 offices across North America. With principal offices in Redmond and Vancouver, Wash., U.S., R2 Resource Consultants provides services in fisheries and aquatic science, fish passage and hatchery facilities, ecology, and water resource engineering services across the Pacific Northwest.
R2 founders Dudley Reiser and Michael Ramey stated “Of utmost concern for us in joining a new organization was ensuring that our people and specialties we market to would be appreciated. We also wanted to preserve the warm, friendly, and family-feel style that we believe was somewhat unique to R2. Throughout this journey, we’ve come to learn that Kleinschmidt’s philosophy is almost identical!”
“The joining of our two companies will double the depth of staff in the Pacific Northwest, and with our complementary client bases, set the stage for continued success and growth in the region”, says Jon Christensen, chief executive officer of Kleinschmidt. “We are thrilled to join forces and look forward to providing clients with the expanded technical expertise for their projects.”
Kleinschmidt was founded in 1966 and provides services to power, energy, water, and government clients. Kleinschmidt’s team specializes in hydropower and water resource engineering, FERC licensing, fish passage and protection, hydrology and hydraulics and habitat analysis and restoration.
