New England-based Engineering and Landscape Architecture firm, BETA Group, Inc., has acquired Nover-Armstrong Associates, Inc. (Nover-Armstrong), an environmental services firm based in Carver, MA. Effective October 1, 2018, the merger of these two firms further expands BETA’s environmental services expertise and resources. Nover-Armstrong’s staff will complement BETA’s existing services, while bringing further in-house expertise to the group including hazardous material building surveys, ecological services, and expert environmental permitting. These services will continue to be provided to municipal, private, and state agency clients throughout the region.
Under the leadership of Principals Marta J. Nover and Marylou Armstrong, LSP, Nover-Armstrong has provided environmental consulting, permitting, and environmental engineering services for the past 15 years across Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Both Ms. Nover and Ms. Armstrong will join BETA’s management team as Vice Presidents of the environmental services practice group. Nover-Armstrong’s professional staff, including Licensed Site Professionals, Professional Engineers, Asbestos Inspectors, and Soil Evaluators, will join the firm in BETA’s Lincoln, RI corporate headquarters; Norwood, MA office; and BETA’s new Worcester, MA office.
“Our firms have teamed together for over a decade offering comprehensive environmental and engineering services to our clients. This merger will provide a seamless transition for our combined client base as we continue to offer these services, now under one roof,” said Frank Romeo, PE, President and CEO of BETA.
BETA Group, Inc. has consistently been ranked as one of the largest regional engineering firms. The acquisition of the Nover-Armstrong team will further bolster that position as a regional leader in the AEC industry.
