Compass Pointe Engineering Joins McGill Associates

McGill Associates Expanddm-3s With New Coastal Location

McGill Associates is pleased to announce that Compass Pointe Engineering, a civil and environmental engineering firm based in Shallotte, North Carolina, has joined the McGill Associates’ team.

Effective January 1, 2017, the merger cements the longstanding relationship that McGill Associates and Compass Pointe developed, having collaborated on a variety of public and private projects over the past five years. With Compass Pointe’s addition to the firm, McGill Associates will now be able to serve clients from seven regional offices across North Carolina and Tennessee.

Compass Pointe brings extensive experience in planning, design, regulatory compliance, and construction management to the McGill Associates’ team. This experience is specific to the coastal market and its sensitive environments. In particular, Compass Pointe possesses a strong working knowledge of North Carolina’s Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA), which governs many aspects of coastal engineering. The merging of these two firms creates a more comprehensive slate of offerings to better serve clients in southeastern North Carolina.

“To have the technical resources to conveniently serve clients on the coast of North Carolina is a huge advantage to our company,” said Joel Storrow, PE, the president of McGill Associates. “I’m proud to have Michael Norton, PE, President of Compass Pointe, and his team of professionals become a vital part of the growth and success of McGill Associates.”

McGill Associates is excited to embark on this new endeavor and is proud to officially welcome Compass Pointe to our team.
