Taylor Engineering, Woolpert ink Mentor-Protégé deal
Taylor Engineering and Woolpert have been approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration for a six-year Mentor-Protégé Program agreement.
Under this agreement, Woolpert will provide Taylor with management and technical assistance to expand its technical consulting capabilities, remote-sensing instrumentation, and data collection capabilities nationwide to support federal clients.
Woolpert will expand Taylor’s proximity to and relationships with federal agencies and regional offices across the country and will enable Taylor to successfully compete against other small businesses and large Mentor-Protégé Program teams.
Taylor is set to deliver coastal engineering and modeling expertise to support Woolpert’s consulting, engineering, and geospatial capabilities.
The firms will collaborate on project design, online decision support tools, continuous modeling, and data evaluation to develop engineered solutions to persistent and evolving coastal issues.
Taylor President Jim Marino said that staff from Taylor and Woolpert have partnered on coastal projects and research for decades, and this provides a strong and effective foundation to effect real change.
