Meredith Bearden, LEED® AP
Although I have only been at SeamonWhiteside+Associates for nearly three years now, I stand honored and privileged to be a part of such a reputable firm and what I know as my home away from home. Since establishment in 1985, SW+A has provided services such as Land Planning, Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Permit Coordination, and Construction Administration. With projects ranging in size from one acre to 4,500 acres, I have been lucky to have taken part in a number of project types such as residential, planned developments, commercial, parks & recreation, public works, schools, urban design, and due diligence. It is pretty amazing to have on record that SW+A has not only designed over 25,000 residential units equating to housing over 60,000 people, but in twenty-four years, we have also engineered more than one million linear feet of water and sewer lines! As history continues to be made, even in these trying times, we continue to hunker down, keep our spirits up, and get the job done right.
While we remain encouraged and committed to keeping up with the evolving technologies in our field, we continue to be ambitious in our goals of professional development. With offices in Mount Pleasant and Greenville totaling to 51 employees, we have a total of 9 Professional Engineers, 12 Registered Landscape Architects, 10 LEED® AP Civil Engineers including three PEs (40% of civil staff), and 9 LEED® AP Landscape Architects including five RLAs (50% of LA staff). This leaves us with 21 registered personnel and 44% LEED Accredited Professional staff! Times are always changing and as this firm evolves with new studios, new designs, and new ideas, we hold true to the people we are and the services we provide. I am proud to be part a part of this journey, this firm, and this family, and that is something to brag about!
