Coming off its third consecutive year of increasing project activity and strong revenue growth, Troy-based G2 Consulting Group said today that it has hired 12 new environmental scientists and geotechnical engineers in the past six months and is looking to hire up to five additional professionals. The nationally recognized geotechnical, environmental and construction engineering company has a full-time professional staff of 49, plus six interns.

“We are continuing to add talent to better serve our clients,” says G2’s Mark Smolinski. “With the construction business gaining traction, both here in the metro Detroit area and in other markets we serve, we have a number of projects underway and a strong book of business going forward.”

G2’s recent projects include work on last summer’s I-96 reconstruction in Wayne County, Michigan, Field & Stream’s first Michigan location in Troy and several senior living developments. The company is currently involved in the I-75/University Drive interchange Design/Build project in Auburn Hills, telecommunications projects throughout the United States, and the Lavergne Avenue Sewer Improvement Project (part of the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan for the Metropolitan Sanitary District of Greater Chicago). G2 completed a record 2,700 projects last year in highway and roadway construction, water and wastewater treatment, telecommunications, commercial development and education.

“With the current focus on improving roads in Michigan and the increase in development activity throughout the geographic areas we serve, we want to be ready to dive in wherever we have an opportunity to do so,” said Smolinski. “We’ve been fortunate to win a number of marquee projects and we continue to add qualified professionals to handle the steady volume of work we have on hand.” Smolinski encouraged entry and mid-level engineers to forward their resumes for consideration (

In addition to its Troy headquarters, G2 has offices in Ann Arbor and Chicago. The company has been in business since 1994, has completed jobs across the United States (and in Canada)  and is certified in 30+ states. G2’s corporate mantra, “Smart. Results. Fast.” “is what drives us every day,” says Smolinski. “Our clients know we mean it and we’ve been delivering on the promise so they keep coming back.”
