Giffels-Webster moved its headquarters to downtown Detroit last year with plans on expanding its presence in the Motor City's Central Business District. The planning and engineering firm hasn't disappointed.
Giffels-Webster had about half a dozen people at what was then a satellite office. Today 26 people work downtown out of a staff of 60 employees and an intern. Three of the firm's last four hires from this year have been at the Detroit office.
"It has tripled in size and it is now the largest of our three offices," says Scott Clein, president of Giffels-Webster
The 60-year-old company also has offices in Oakland and Macomb County, and still expects to keep hiring in the not-too-distant future. Clein expects many of the new hires will go in the regional satellite offices.
