ENGEO Incorporated, San Ramon, Calif., recently was recognized as one the Best Places to Work (101-500 employee category) by the Business Journal/Business Times. The firm was awarded the top spot among companies from the 10-county Greater Bay area. Additionally, ENGEO is the only engineering firm to receive an award in its category this year. Fort Worth, Texas-based Teague Nall and Perkins, Inc., has opened a new office in Sherman, Texas. The new location-the firm's fourth-will serve as a northern extension of its civil engineering, surveying, and landscape architecture/planning operations. The Canadian consulting firm Stantec has acquired North Springfield, Vt.-based Dufresne-Henry, adding 270 employees and 12 office locations to its growing business. "We are now part of a North American firm with an extensive network of experts enabling us to provide a wider range of services to our clients," said Dufresne-Henry President & CEO Rich Allen, who will continue with Stantec as a senior vice president. Kleinfelder, San Diego, Calif., has opened an office in Tampa, Fla. According to Senior Vice President of Corporate Development Kevin Pottmeyer, the expansion brings the firm's expertise to an area where rapid, sustained population growth translates to an inherent demand for professional engineering services.
