Stewart, an interdisciplinary design, engineering, planning and geomatics firm, announced an expanded presence across the Carolinas with two new office locations in Columbia, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina. Opening the new offices creates a cross-state footprint that builds on the firm’s current headquarters in downtown Raleigh and existing office locations in Charlotte and Durham, bolstering its service offerings for current and future clients, the company said.

“The expansion into South Carolina is a natural fit for us as part of our overall growth strategy. Coupled with market demand, we knew that this was the right time and the right opportunity to strengthen our position and continue developing relationships throughout the Carolinas,” said Willy Stewart, CEO and founder, Stewart.

The Columbia office is led by Karl Alewine, PLS, Stewart’s manager of survey.  Alewine has 34 years of experience working in the civil engineering industry.  

Sean Leggett, PLS, manager of survey will lead Stewart’s Wilmington office.  Leggett brings 26 years of industry and market expertise to the company.

Both report to Frank Mundy, geomatics practice leader at Stewart.
