Perry Engineering joins GMC in Nashville

Nashville, Tenn. – GMC has acquired Perry Engineering, a Nashville-based civil engineering firm specializing in commercial and residential site development. Perry Engineering’s portfolio of work includes civil engineering, land planning and site development for private developers, major corporations, public institutions and other clients throughout the Southeast. Randy Perry, founder and principal of Perry Engineering, will now lead GMC’s Nashville engineering group as vice president.

“Perry Engineering’s strengths in civil site development complement our Nashville team’s municipal engineering expertise, allowing us to provide more comprehensive engineering services in Tennessee,” GMC CEO Jeffrey Brewer said. “Our Nashville office has grown immensely over the last year, and we’re excited to further expand our range of services within the region.”

GMC’s depth of resources and regional network of professionals will also allow the Perry Engineering team to better serve their existing client base, which encompasses regional and national companies and developers.

“Becoming a part of the GMC family is a great opportunity for Perry Engineering and our clients,” Perry said. “As a small firm, there’s only so much you can do with the capacity you have. GMC has so many different positive resources to draw from, and we’re really excited about that.”

GMC and Perry Engineering have collaborated on projects in the Nashville area over the years, including multiple projects for Williamson County Schools such as Brentwood STEM School, Page Middle and High schools and several auditorium projects, and the new Paris Landing State Park Inn for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

“We’re thrilled to have Randy and his team join us in Nashville,” Russ Hale, GMC Regional Vice President in Tennessee, said. “Our firms have worked together seamlessly in the past, and this acquisition was a logical next step in furthering the collective impact we can have in Tennessee and beyond.”

The Perry Engineering staff will relocate to the GMC Nashville office located at 3310 West End Avenue, Suite 420.
