With Chapman a part of the GRW family we will have greater flexibility to respond to client needs.”
Joe Bird, a Chapman senior vice president, said, “Since we were established in 1984, Chapman Technical Group has been focused on the architectural and engineering infrastructure needs of West Virginia.”
Greg Belcher, a senior vice president of Chapman, added, “Being a part of GRW will improve our capacity and expand our expertise as we continue to serve our valued clients.”
