Triangle Business Journal Names S&ME #20 Largest Privately Held Entities in Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill

We are excited to be named #20 of the Largest Privately Held Entities in Raleigh-Durham by Triangle Business Journal.

The Triangle region in North Carolina is flourishing with growth due to its abundant outdoor activities, excellent food scene, world-class museums, quality of life, availability of jobs, and universities. We are proud to be involved in many projects in the region that help positively impact our community.

S&ME was established in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 1973, and in 2020, it remains our headquarters and largest location. Our Raleigh office prides itself on providing our clients with responsive, reliable, and outstanding quality while building respectful relationships. Servicing the vibrant and growing Triangle region to the coast, we love collaborating with our clients on projects that help our community prosper sustainably. Our S&ME Raleigh team provides a full range of geotechnical engineering, environmental and construction services, field exploration, transportation, and non-destructive testing services.

Check out a few local projects S&ME has proudly contributed to in the Triangle region:

  • Complete 540: This NCDOT project encompasses three Design-Build projects that will extend the Triangle Expressway (Interstate 540) and meet the substantial transportation, social, and economic demands of southeastern Wake County. Our Transportation team is providing multiple CEI technicians for roadway inspection, structure inspection, HiCAMS duties, and full-time personnel directly to NCDOT to review and analyze the project schedule.



  • Southeast Raleigh YMCA and School: The Southeast Raleigh YMCA and Wake County Elementary School was created as a public-private partnership and is the first of its kind in North Carolina. This Pre-K through 5th-grade facility is joined with a branch of the YMCA to not only offer education, but also services to families in a historically underserved community. Our Construction Services team was proud to provide construction materials testing and special inspections during the facility construction.
