Successful hiring drives need for office expansion to two floors in downtown Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (May 9, 2023) – HNTB expanded its office space again in downtown Milwaukee, after adding new space just a year and a half ago. The firm has seen significant growth in Wisconsin by increasing the full-time workforce by over 55% in the last three years. As a result, HNTB is now leasing the entire 19th and 20th floors at Two-Fifty on east Wisconsin Avenue, increasing the total lease to 30,694 square feet.
HNTB has grown to 125 professionals in Milwaukee — with more than 180 professionals and an additional 38 interns/co-ops in Wisconsin this summer ؙ— and the additional space will provide enough room for 20 more. In April, HNTB announced its geographic expansion by leasing office space in the Boardwalk Building in Ashwaubenon (a suburb of Green Bay) to accommodate client needs in the northeast Wisconsin.
“As an organization, HNTB firmly believes that our performance and culture are driven by being together. As we continue to attract and retain top talent in a rewarding and dynamic office environment, this drives our need for additional office space,” said Ashley Booth, HNTB Wisconsin office leader and vice president. “Our expanded presence in Milwaukee’s vibrant downtown area continues to allow us to effectively serve our clients, while providing an environment in which our professionals continue to thrive.”
HNTB’s clients include Wisconsin Department of Transportation, cities of Milwaukee and Madison, Milwaukee County, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, the Milwaukee Bucks and others. HNTB delivers engineering and architectural services for bridges, roadways, highways, tolling, transit, rail, planning, program/construction management and more to clients throughout Wisconsin and the U.S.
HNTB has worked on, or is currently involved with, some of the most high-profile infrastructure projects in Wisconsin, many contributing significantly to Milwaukee’s resurgence. These include I-94 East-West, the Hop streetcar, the soon to open CONNECT (East-West) Bus Rapid Transit, I-794/Lake Interchange, I-43 North-South, Fiserv Forum, and Jackson Park and Wilson Park Creek rehab projects.
