Having supported hundreds of facility and infrastructure projects along the East Coast, Burns & McDonnell opened its Greenville, South Carolina office in 2018 at 124 Verdae Blvd. and recently completed an office expansion to accommodate plans to expand its team to more than 100 local employees within the next three to five years. The growth in the region is part of the 100% employee-owned engineering, architecture and construction firm’s nationwide effort to hire more than 1,000 professionals annually.
