B&L Expands Maryland Presence With Acquisition of Advanced Land and Water, Inc.


Barton & Loguidice (B&L) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Maryland-based firm Advanced Land and Water, Inc. (ALWI). Currently operating from its Baltimore-area office, ALWI is a nine-person firm specializing in hydrogeological and environmental consulting, including expertise with complex water supply, discharge and contamination challenges for clients throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

Mark W. Eisner, P.G., founder of ALWI, is joining B&L as a Vice President in the firm’s Environmental Practice Area and will serve as Branch Manager of the Baltimore-area office.

“I’m proud to bring the firm’s more than 20 years of experience and expertise to Barton & Loguidice,” said Eisner. “This opportunity allows for the team to continue to experience professional growth and explore new work opportunities, as well as provide our clientele with even more resources to service their needs. Joining the B&L team was a natural fit for us.”

With this acquisition in the mid-Atlantic region, B&L is able to bring a wealth of local qualifications and expertise in environmental sciences, hydrogeology, geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) technology to its clientele while, at the same time, bringing its core areas of expertise to clients in a larger geographic footprint.

“Adding ALWI to the B&L family provides our clients with even greater service offerings through the firm’s expertise in hydrogeological and environmental consulting,” said John F. Brusa, Jr., P.E. President and CEO of B&L. “There is a strong alignment between our two firms’ core cultural values, commitment to excellent client service and reputations for innovation. We are excited to be able to bring our firm’s skills, resources and innovative expertise to clients in Maryland and the mid-Atlantic region.”

All nine employees of ALWI have joined the B&L team and continue to operate from their existing location. B&L plans to continue to grow operations in the mid-Atlantic, which would allow for three to four more personnel in the near term.
