TRC, a provider of end-to-end engineering, consulting and construction management solutions, has acquired infrastructure management firm Vali Cooper & Associates, Inc. (VC&A).
“Vali Cooper & Associates is a leading construction management firm in California and has an excellent reputation throughout the industry, especially in the public sector,” said TRC CEO Chris Vincze. “This key acquisition aligns with our strategic growth strategy and will help diversify our robust portfolio of infrastructure services in one of the strongest markets in the country.”
VC&A has 200 employees and its rail service offerings include track inspection, grade crossings and separations, bridges, stations, surface and signal work and flagging coordination.
TRC has been involved in several rail projects for the San Diego Association of Governments including trolley renewal, a bridge replacement and slope stabilization.
“TRC shares many of the same values as VC&A, and joining with them will boost our national presence and enable us to expand the breadth of services we bring to our clients,” said Agnes Weber, VC&A’s chief strategy officer. “This is a great fit for both firms and we are thrilled about this exciting new chapter.”
The company has branch offices throughout California and one in Colorado.
“Expanding our construction services capabilities will deepen the relationships we have with our clients and allow us to better serve them as a full-service engineering and management consultant,” said Doug Massih, president of TRC’s Infrastructure Sector. “VC&A brings a strong leadership team and talented staff into our company, and they will all play a key role in growing our infrastructure business, especially in California.”
