JQ Engineering, LLP, an award-winning Texas-based structural and civil engineering services firm, has joined IMEG. The year-end merger helps position both firms for continued growth in the Texas market.

JQ Engineering (JQ) has served clients since 1984, providing structural and civil engineering, land surveying, and facility assessment solutions in multiple market sectors including aviation, commercial, education, government, healthcare, hospitality, housing, science & technology, and sports & recreation.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome JQ into our company,” said IMEG President/CEO Paul VanDuyne. “By blending JQ’s structural and civil expertise with IMEG’s full-service engineering portfolio and existing structural and MEP teams in Texas, we create a strong synergy for future growth.”

JQ CEO Stephen H. Lucy said his firm is excited to become part of IMEG and help drive continued growth in the greater Texas region. “We built our strong reputation on being active members of project teams and delivering innovative design with forward-thinking leadership,” he said. “This philosophy blends well with IMEG’s client-centric, outcome-based approach, allowing us to leverage a broader base of market and technical expertise.”

The merger expands the firms’ Texas-based staff to more than 200 team members at offices in Austin, Bastrop, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. Existing JQ teams will continue to operate from their existing locations, doing business as JQ, now IMEG. Steve Lucy and JQ Partner Chris Story will continue to serve as regional team leaders.
