VHB and Urban Engineers have joined forces effective today. Since its founding in 1961 as a civil engineering firm, Urban Engineers has partnered with public and private sector clients in land development projects that enhance communities across metro Atlanta. Adding Urban Engineers practice areas to VHB in Georgia means a significant expansion of VHB’s land development capabilities across the Atlanta metro area and the state, allowing us to better serve our real estate market clients.

Dan Wintermeyer, PE, LEED AP, President of Urban Engineers, Inc., will be joining VHB as Director of Land Development in Atlanta. He has more than 30 years of experience and is a fixture of the Atlanta development community, leading multi-disciplinary projects. Dan has partnered with architects, land developers, and public agencies on site development to elevate projects like The District at Howell Mill, a retail and hospitality redevelopment of 17 acres of prime Atlanta real estate for retail and hospital; and Union Station Business Center, an 80-acre mixed use office, industrial and entertainment development supporting Atlanta Metro Studios. Joining VHB alongside Dan are eight engineering and land development professionals skilled in civil design, land surveying, and project management.

“Dan and the team at Urban Engineers are a significant addition VHB Georgia. They are well-respected in the industry for helping clients navigate the complicated land development process and bringing critical projects that enhance economic development to fruition,” said Fabricio Ponce, PE, VHB Atlanta Managing Director. “We are so excited to welcome our new colleagues from Urban Engineers and are looking forward to all the opportunities that this will provide our teams and clients!”

Urban Engineers will move to VHB’s Tucker and Atlanta office locations and will operate legally as Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc., and be known as VHB.
