Irvine and Novato, CA – October 3, 2013 – Noble Consultants, Inc., an engineering firm specializing in coastal, structural, harbor, and water resources engineering, has been acquired by Louisiana-based G.E.C., Inc. (GEC), a leading provider of engineering, planning, and environmental services.
Noble Consultants brings to GEC over 40 years of national and international experience providing a wide array of engineering services on shoreline and other marine projects. Ronald M. Noble, P.E. will continue to serve as President of Noble Consultants overseeing the California operations while taking a large role in expanding GEC’s coastal client base. The California operations will continue to run as Noble Consultants.
Mr. Noble said, “This joining with GEC vastly expands the services that Noble Consultants can offer to its clients.”
The acquisition of Noble Consultants also greatly enhances GEC’s capabilities in coastal restoration and engineering. With the addition of Noble Consultants’ offices in Irvine and Novato, CA, the acquisition also significantly extends GEC’s national reach.
GEC and Noble Consultants have a business relationship dating back to the 1990s. Noble Consultants has teamed with GEC over the years on its past Louisiana environmental and coastal restoration contracts as well as numerous Army Corps of Engineers contracts including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Alaska and New Orleans districts. Currently Noble Consultants is a teaming partner with GEC on both its coastal engineering and its environmental sciences contracts with Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA).
GEC is headquartered in Baton Rouge, and office locations include Metairie, Lafayette, and Mandeville, Louisiana; Jacksonville, Florida; Irvine and Novato, California; and Gulfport, Mississippi.
Snow geese are harbingers of the changing seasons. They fly south for the winter in huge, honking flocks that may appear as a “U” formation or simply as a large “snowstorm” of white birds. They spend the colder seasons in southern coastal marshes, bays,canada goose jacket wet grasslands, and fields. Their diet is entirely vegetarian, consisting of grasses and grains, grazed from damp soils or even shallow water.
At winter’s end, snow geese fly north to their breeding grounds on the Arctic tundra. Pairs mate for life, and produce two to six eggs each year in a shallow ground nest. Chicks can swim and eat on their own within 24 hours, but families remain together through the young’s first winter. Families can be identified as groups during both the southern and northern migrations.
In 1916, snow geese had become so rare in the eastern United States that hunting of the species was banned. Since that time, the birds have made a remarkable comeback. Today, though hunting has been reinstated, populations are thriving. In fact, the birds have become so numerous in places that they threaten to destroy their own habitat.
