Hussey Gay Bell has chosen Greenville for the firm’s eighth location.
The privately held company is an ENR Top 500/Top Southeast Design Firm and a regional provider of professional engineering, architectural, planning and survey services.
Hussey Gay Bell’s new office is in the Falls Place development at 531 S. Main St. in Greenville’s West End Historic District overlooking Falls Park.
“The addition of our Greenville office marks an exciting time here at Hussey Gay Bell and enhances our ability to service existing Upstate clientele and further strengthens the firm’s regional brand presence in core market segments including industrial, commercial, residential and water/sewer,” G. Holmes Bell IV, CEO and chairman, said in a news release. “Having been in continuous operation in the Midlands and Lowcountry since 1985, it’s long been recognized that the Upstate region of the state is robust and continues to thrive and we look forward to being a part of that growth.”
Kevin Strickland will oversee the Greenville office, serving as the managing director for both the firm’s Columbia and Greenville operations, the release said. He will be responsible for the overall management of operations, executive strategy development and execution, contractual negotiations, resource allocation and client management. An employee of Hussey Gay Bell since 2015, Strickland is an engineering and site development veteran with more than 30 years of experience including the design, planning, permitting and project management of water/wastewater treatment plants, wastewater collection systems, water distribution systems, transportation systems and site development for public and private clients throughout the Carolinas.
