Murraysmith Acquires Aqualyze, Expanding Team of Modeling Experts
At Murraysmith, we are always striving to be the best at what we do, bringing together people who are both masters of their craft and who work hard to bring out the best in themselves and their colleagues. That’s why we’re so excited to announce that Murraysmith has acquired Aqualyze Inc!
An eight-person modeling and planning firm based in the Puget Sound, Aqualyze adds major modeling muscle to Murraysmith, bringing our firm-wide modeling and planning team up to 20 specialists and strengthening the water, sewer, and stormwater modeling and planning services we’ve been providing to our clients for many years. The addition of Aqualyze also carries us to over 40 employees in the Puget Sound.
Rizwan Hamid, PE, the President and CEO of Aqualyze, brings national experience and will lead our newly expanded modeling group.
“Joining the Murraysmith family is an exciting step for us as our group evolves. This is a very thoughtful and meticulous union that is perfectly balanced on complementary skills, corporate culture and values, and most importantly, the strategic vision moving forward. Together, we will strive to be the best in business and provide the greatest value to our clients,” said Rizwan.
Having collaborated on notable projects such as the Vine Basin CSO Control project for Seattle Public Utilities, we look forward to accomplishing much more together for public agencies across the West Coast.
“As a result of this acquisition, we will improve our technical capabilities as we continue to strive to be experts in the services we provide, including hydraulic modeling,” said Murraysmith President and CEO Chris Rayasam. “Additionally, we appreciate that the culture and values of Aqualyze mirror those of Murraysmith. The team from Aqualyze is amazing at what they do, highly skilled at the services they provide, and has a similar employee-first mentality as Murraysmith. We consider this to be a very natural union of two like-minded firms.”
With our combined expertise and resources, we will continue empowering our clients with the highest level of service and the decision-making tools they need to select effective, sustainable solutions.
