New York – AKF continues to grow and expand from its roots in the Northeast and New England, to other parts of the country. The firm has acquired Richmond, Virginia-based Bold Rock Engineering Group, an MEP/FP and commissioning firm serving the region for nearly four decades.

“This partnership makes sense for all parties involved,” said AKF CEO, Dino DeFeo, PE, “for AKF, for Bold Rock, and especially for our clients. Collectively, we’ll build on our experience to deliver innovative and client-centric solutions exceeding our clients’ expectations.”

Bradley Lownsbury, Bold Rock’s managing principal, stated, “We’ve always championed a client-first focus and, simply put, joining AKF benefits our clients. As AKF Richmond, we are now a firm with local roots and global reach.”

Bold Rock’s notable projects include the redevelopment of Main Street Station, Richmond’s historic railroad station; the expansion and renovation of Washington Dulles International Airport’s International Arrivals Building; Loudon County’s Metro Rail Station Parking; the new Regattas Dining Hall at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA; and the recently renovated 410-key Richmond Marriott.

“Having collaborated with Bold Rock on successful projects,” DeFeo continued, “we felt this was an excellent opportunity to grow the AKF family by acquiring a firm with a shared vision and culture of Engineering Leadership.”

AKF’s presence in Richmond also empowers the firm to provide additional support to existing clients, such as VCU Health, James Madison University, Inova Health, and Children’s National Medical Center.

“This is a natural progression for AKF. We’ve experienced great success with the launch of our Baltimore office, and our new office in Richmond enhances our growing operations in the Southeast,” said DeFeo. “We’re also excited to be a part of and contribute to the growth in Richmond and across Virginia.”
