Salas O’Brien announced that the Leffler Group has joined the company, adding a Denver-based structural engineering team and creating a combined firm of 41 offices with more than 1,000 team members and 260 registered professionals.

The Leffler team represents the latest in a series of structural-focused mergers for Salas O’Brien.

As the next step in Salas O’Brien’s strategy to be local everywhere, with international resources, the Leffler Group will continue to be managed by its current leaders and will adopt the Salas O’Brien name after a transition period. The Leffler team will also collaborate with other structural engineering team members within Salas O’Brien and will begin offering a single point of contact for a wide variety of in-house engineering and related services.

The merger closed on April 30, 2021, and news was shared just after the close with both the Leffler and Salas O’Brien teams.

“As the complex work of structural engineers becomes increasingly important within Salas O’Brien, I am thrilled to welcome the exceptional talent of the Leffler team,” said Darin Anderson, Salas O’Brien chairman and CEO. “Our teams already hold the same values and a complementary portfolio, and as we grow and learn from one another, we know our clients will continue to benefit.”

Salas O’Brien continues to grow as part of an ambitious plan to create the most respected engineering firm in the world as measured by our clients and team members. The Leffler Group joins Salas O’Brien as the first merger in 2021 after five companies joined the firm in 2020.

“Salas O’Brien is a perfect fit for the Leffler team,” said Russ Leffler, CEO of the Leffler Group. “As we take the next step in our mutual growth, the Leffler Group and Salas O’Brien have a bright future together based on values that are so clearly complementary.”
