Two firms merge in the Boulders

Timmons group logoA large local engineering firm looked to one of its office park neighbors for its latest acquisition.

Timmons Group recently announced the acquisition of Evenspring, a year-old mobile application and web development firm located in the same building as the Timmons office in Boulders I at 1001 Boulders Parkway.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Evenspring will make at least three companies that Timmons has acquired over a five-month span.

Evenspring will cease operations on Nov. 15 and fold into Timmons Group, which is already Evenspring’s largest client.

“We started out with just a couple of one-off projects,” Evenspring co-founder Aujang Abadi said. “We went from doing one project together to doing three, five, seven to where we were working on projects for Timmons virtually around the clock.”

Evenspring first worked for Timmons Group in 2012 under a company called SRRN Games. Its work included “Stormwater Sentries,” a game for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay designed to demonstrate the impact of storm water runoff on the bay.

Evenspring spun off from SRRN about a year ago after the company began getting more requests for mobile application design work from corporate clients. SRRN continues to operate as a separate business and was not included in the Timmons acquisition.

Timmons designs applications itself as well. Its portfolio includes an app to help anglers find fishing spots that Timmons made for the Missouri Department of Conservation and an app named GoHunt that Timmons developed for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Evenspring also previously had a healthcare software development wing that will be acquired by Richmond-based Clearview Logix next month. Of Evenspring’s 10 employees, six will move over to Timmons. Abadi will become the engineering firm’s chief technology officer.

Clearview Logix will take two Evenspring employees. Co-founder Allen Hatzimanolis will join Clearview as its chief technology officer.

Timmons’ acquisition streak began in May when it bought Hampton Roads surveying firm Baldwin & Gregg. A month later it added Development Consulting Services, a Raleigh, N.C.-based land development company.
