Merrill Engineers and Land Surveyors Acquires Cavanaro Consulting

Merger creates premier land use consulting, civil engineering, and surveying firm in Eastern Massachusetts

On January 1, 2022, Merrill Corporation, owner of land use consulting firm Merrill Engineers and Land Surveyors, acquired Cavanaro Consulting, a highly regarded firm well-known for its civil engineering and permitting expertise. Both firms will operate as divisions of Merrill Corporation.

“We are very excited for the Cavanaro crew to join the Merrill family,” said Joshua Bows, P.E., President of Merrill Corporation. “Both firms have achieved exceptional milestones in their field. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.”

Merrill’s acquisition of Cavanaro Consulting is instrumental to Merrill’s strategy to build on its reputation as the ‘go to’ land use consulting firm in Eastern Massachusetts. “The merger combines the experience and resources of both firms to help clients plan, execute, and complete projects with unmatched efficiency,” said Bows.

Clients of both Merrill Engineers and Land Surveyors and Cavanaro Consulting will benefit from the diverse experience of professionals and available resources at both firms.  Initially, clients will see no change in service, and over time operations will evolve to improve efficiency and performance.

The merger is a natural extension of both firms’ long history of collaborating on projects. “It was a natural fit,” said John Cavanaro, P.E., President of Cavanaro Consulting. “Twenty years ago, we set out to deliver consulting engineering services comparable to the best in the business. Merrill was our gold-standard from day one. We are thrilled to be part of their team and look forward to keeping the bar high.”
