14 Dec San Diego Staple Hope-Admundson Merges with Nationwide Coffman Engineers
Hope-Admundson, a local company that was built on over 80 years of family history in the San Diego area, has merged with Coffman Engineers. Since 1993, Hope-Admundson has served as an architectural and engineering staple in the San Diego region specializing in building commercial, education, government, healthcare, life science, mixed-use and parking structures.
Before closing its doors on November 1, Hope-Amundson announced that their structural engineering services will not change. Their staff of 33, which includes 19-licensed engineers, will join a broader network of engineers that provide more engineering services, including structural, civil, mechanical, electrical and fire protection engineering services originally offered by Coffman. Their offices in downtown San Diego and Newport Beach, California, will also join the nationwide Coffman network of 12 offices serving clients across the United States and overseas.
In an announcement on the updated website Jim Admundson stated, “The best deals are the win-win. We will strategically help Coffman with their Southern California presence and for Hope-Amundson, this allows us to join a larger firm, offer our clients more services, and look for opportunities in other areas.”
The addition of Hope-Admundson office in San Diego comes during an exciting time of growth for Coffman as they are also strategically increasing their presence on the East Coast which includes the addition of a new office in the Washington, D.C. metro area in May 2017.
