Company Overview

S&ME delivers engineering, design, environmental consulting, and construction management services for the built environment. Founded in 1973, we have grown to a 950-person corporation operating from 26 locations. S&ME is wholly owned by its employees who remain faithful to our core values of safety, quality, honesty and integrity. We believe engineering and technical services must be directed by professionals with relevant experience, so we build our teams to fit projects. Our goal is to provide practical solutions to our clients’ infrastructure, development and environmental challenges. We care about our clients and devote our abundant resources and technical expertise to helping them safely and efficiently meet their objectives.


S&ME (formerly, Soil & Material Engineers) was founded in 1973 in Raleigh, North Carolina and remains headquartered there. In 1987 Westinghouse acquired S&ME and by 1992 decided to exit the environmental market allowing a group of S&ME’s original owners to buy back portions of the company. Since 1992 S&ME has operated as an employee-owned company dedicated to quality service, employee growth and responsible fiscal operation. We have expanded through organic growth and acquisition of several firms, including QORE Property Sciences and BBCM Engineering, thereby expanding our geographic footprint while maintaining strong core services.
