From a small one-engineer civil engineering consulting firm started by Warren “Andy” Anderson, PE, way back in 1968, Anderson and Associates, to the current Anderson, Eckstein & Westrick, Inc., with 115 employees, the ensuing 50 years have been devoted to “Engineering Strong Communities,” and we’re proud to presently serve 29 municipalities and a number of private clients from our offices in Shelby Township, Roseville and Livonia.
Anderson was employed by the Macomb County Road Commission prior to starting his own firm, and he was joined in 1970 by George Eckstein, PE, and in 1972 by Bill Westrick, PE, both also former Road Commission employees.
As the firm’s client base grew, so did their staff and the services they provided; municipal engineering, architecture, structural engineering, surveying, land development, construction administration, traffic engineering, water resources and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) were all added to their portfolio of expertise.
