PBSJ takes on the name of its new parent, WS Atkins, on April 1

Say goodbye to PBSJ Corp. on April 1.

That's the day the Tampa engineering and construction firm takes on the name of its new owner, British design firm WS Atkins.

Atkins bought PBSJ for $280 million in August, making the employee-owned firm part of a conglomerate that employees some 18,000 people across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and North America. At the time, PBSJ had about 3,500 workers in 80 offices, including 350 in its Tampa headquarters.

Shareholders approved the deal in October, making Tampa the U.S. base of Atkins' operations.

PBSJ is the parent of PBS&J, long active in infrastructure projects statewide, including the $400 million Interstate 4/Selmon Expressway Connector in Tampa.
