Engineering Leadership Purchases Wiles Mensch Corporation’s
Public Sector Division and Forms Sorba Engineering
Meredith McComas, PE, President, and Matt McComas, PE, LS, LEED AP, Associate Principal, have announced the establishment of Sorba Engineering (Sorba) in Reston, Virginia. The new entity was formed after the engineers purchased the assets of the Public Sector Division of Wiles Mensch Corporation (WMC), a civil engineering and surveying firm that serves public- and private-sector clients in land development consulting.
Sorba is a SWaM certified woman-owned, small and micro business. The company retains its complement of 12 engineers and technical specialists, along with more than 40 active projects in the Washington metropolitan area. Meredith McComas will serve as president of Sorba Engineering, overseeing quality assurance programs and administration for the firm. Matt McComas will continue to direct current engineering projects, a role he held with Wiles Mensch for more than 12 years.
“We are proud to continue offering civil engineering expertise under the new banner of Sorba Engineering, a SWaM certified woman-owned small business within the Washington region,” says Meredith McComas. “Most importantly, we will offer continuity to all of our clients, with the same expert leadership and project staffing in place for projects now underway.”
The Sorba Engineering portfolio includes many complex and high-profile projects in the Washington region and overseas, including the renovation of the historic chancery at the US Embassy in Athens, Greece, for the US Department of State; the new Wall of Remembrance at the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC for the National Park Service; renovation of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC; utility relocations for the CSX Virginia Avenue Tunnel in Washington, DC; renovation of the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, DC, for the Architect of the Capitol; lead civil engineer for the development of the Foreign Affairs Security Training Center at Fort Pickett in Virginia, and the first academic building at the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus in Arlington. Additional clients include the US Army Corps of Engineers, the General Services Administration and several state and local governments. The firm continues to support many architectural clients.
