Shea Carr Jewell has changed its name to SCJ Alliance to reflect its expanded offerings and growth beyond the Puget Sound region.
Founded in 2006, in the last two years SCJ has added a number of specialty lines to bolster their competitive edge. These include extreme engineering, conceptual and landscape architecture, community planning and environmental services, information technology and public relations.
“With the challenging economy, we have chosen to grow in order to better serve our diverse client base. We now have five offices in three states,” said SCJ Principal Perry Shea, PE.
“We are very excited about the significant, high visibility projects we’re involved with. These include engineering for both the High Roller Las Vegas Wheel currently under construction and traffic improvements planned for JBLM spanning six miles and five interchanges,” he said.
SCJ, a consulting and professional services firm, has provided the engineering and planning expertise behind many projects in the region. Examples include Port Townsend’s main street improvements, Olympia’s master planned Briggs Village, WinCo Foods stores in Sumner and Lacey, and Bonney Lake’s many intersection improvements along SR 410.
Headquartered in Olympia, WA, SCJ Alliance also has offices in Wenatchee and Vancouver, WA; Boise, ID; and Westminster, CO. In addition to Shea, the firms other principals are Bob Jewell, PE; Jean Carr, LEED AP BD+C; Amy Head, PE, LEED AP BD+C; and Eric Johnston, PE.
SCJ Alliance, under the Shea Carr Jewell moniker, has been widely recognized since its founding in 2006. In 2012 the firm received the Tacoma Pierce County Chamber’s Spotlight on Business award and was named one of the fastest growing firms in the nation, earning a place on the Zweig Letter Hot Firm List.
SCJ was also on the 2011 and 2010 Zweig lists. The company was named the 2009 Small Business of the Year by the Thurston EDC and one of the Best Firms to Work for by Civil Engineering News in 2009 and 2010.
