Volkert acquires Atlanta’s KEA Group

September 30, 2021

Volkert recently acquired Kennedy Engineering & Associates Group, LLC (KEA Group), a transportation engineering firm focused on planning, design, environmental, and CEI services. These four groups work closely together in a collaborative environment, ensuring quality infrastructure projects.

In addition to traditional infrastructure engineering services, KEA Group also provides dispatchers for the Georgia Department of Transportation’s Coordinated Highway Assistance & Maintenance Program (CHAMP).

“We are pleased to bring KEA Group on board,” says Volkert CEO David Allsbrook. “Its geographic footprint and unique service offerings will help us grow our presence in Georgia and Florida.”

KEA Group was founded in 2003 and has established a reputation for understanding and meeting client needs and requests. The KEA Group team works hand-in-hand with government agencies, including federal, state, and municipal; planning agencies; and commercial developers.

“Lori Kennedy built KEA Group over 20 years and has had a long-term working relationship with Volkert,” explains Volkert East Division president David Webber.

“We have worked with Volkert for years and are excited to join forces,” comments KEA Group’s founder and president Lori Kennedy. “Like KEA Group, Volkert is client focused and is committed to providing excellent service. Volkert also places tremendous value on its employees. By combining our assets, we can all continue to push our industry forward and improve our nation’s infrastructure.”

KEA Group’s headquarters— 1720 Peachtree Street, Suite 405, Atlanta, GA 30309—is now operating as a Volkert office, joining our existing Atlanta office. Its Chipley, Florida, location is also now operating as a Volkert office.
