PRIME Engineering, Inc. (PEI) traces its roots to 2007, when it purchased the Maryland and Pennsylvania transportation offices of Prime Engineering & Architecture, Inc. (PEA) which was founded in 1992 and is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. In 2010 PRIME Engineering grew through the purchase of the transportation operations of a New England based civil engineering firm (United International Corporation), adding three new office locations in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut to the company. In 2012 PRIME Engineering grew again through the acquisition of the architectural and engineering operations of Prime Engineering & Architecture (PEA) in order to become a full service Architectural/Engineering (A/E) firm. PRIME has grown from one employee in 2007 to over 100 engineers, technicians, architects, and support staff in 2012 through a combination of acquisitions and internal growth to satisfy the demand for services. Many of our key staff has come from very large top 100 ENR engineering firms throughout the country.
- Ten Mile River Bikeway, Pawtucket, Rhode Island
Design of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) awarding-winning Ten Mile River Bikeway is comprised of a five-mile long bicycle/pedestrian facility along the Ten Mile River between Providence and Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The design involved environmental permitting, wetlands, a flood plain, and adjacent historic districts making it more complex. This project received an Honorable Mention in Category 6 – Highway Related Projects in the FHWA’s Biennial Excellence in Highway Design Competition in 2004.
