ATLANTA, GA, Feb. 2, 2011 -- AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, announces today that it has acquired BCI Engineers and Scientists Inc., a Florida-based consulting firm focused on the water and mining sectors.

Established more than 30 years ago, BCI is a diversified environmental, water resources, geotechnical, civil and forensic engineering firm working predominantly in the water and mining sectors. Headquartered in Lakeland, Fla., the company employs nearly 200 engineers, scientists and other professionals in seven offices.

"This acquisition is consistent with our Vision 2015 growth strategy in the water and mining sectors, as well as expansion in the Southeast U.S.," said Hisham Mahmoud, President of AMEC's Earth & Environmental business. "BCI's talented professionals, locations, services and excellent client relationships make the company a good fit for us."

"By joining AMEC, we will add value for our clients and our staff," said BCI President Richard Powers. "As part of a growing and dynamic global organization, we will be able to better serve our clients nationally and internationally, while generating new technical and professional opportunities for our staff."

In addition to Florida, BCI has offices in Colorado, Michigan and Missouri.
