*With previous employers
Maguire was originally founded in 1938 with a staff of two and not a single project on the books.
In 1954, the firm’s direction was managed by a group of partners that continued to diversify services throughout New England, especially bridge projects in the State of Rhode Island.
By 1963, more than $3 billion in projects had been completed, and with new ownership, focus now included the private sector with clients like Polaroid, United Aircraft, and Kaiser Aluminum.
This era of expansion for the company included acquisitions and growth into markets like the Caribbean, South America, and Africa.
During the slowdown of the 1970s, the firm underwent consolidation and was repurchased from Combustion Engineering.
During a major reorganizational phase, the company established itself as one of the leading firms in Pennsylvania, led a joint venture in designing the most complex section of the Boston Central Artery, and was awarded the IWAY project, which became the company’s signature project.
As our nation’s priorities shifted from infrastructure spending to military and defense, the company also shifted its priorities from growth to optimizing operations and internal organization. As part of that shift, the company was sold to Mr. Duart, who had extensive experience in streamlining engineering firms.
As chance would have it, the company found its new owner while expanding its geographic reach into Florida. Carlos A. Duart, then President of Metric Engineering, partnered with Maguire on an environmental CM assignment in Hialeah, FL. Mr. Duart’s vision of expanding into the northeastern market and Maguire’s goal of finding an outside partner were a perfect fit.
Returning focus to its core strength – transportation engineering – and with renewed ambition to renew its greatness, the company promises to lead the way with innovative solutions for its clients.
