Muscatine-based Stanley Consultants has expanded its presence in the Pacific Region with a new office in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The office will provide a central location to support clients and partners on projects in the Pacific, from Alaska to the Philippines, Australia and beyond, the firm said in a statement. 

Stanley Consultants is a global consulting engineering firm that provides services in program management, planning studies, design, architecture, environmental, urban design and construction management. Along with its corporate headquarters in Muscatine, it also has Iowa offices in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and Des Moines.

Vice President Richard Stump is serving as the office's client liaison, providing contract administration, project facilitation, technical coordination and business development. Mr. Stump, who opened the firm's Guam office in 2010, has 20 years of experience leading and contributing to projects in more than 20 countries worldwide.

"The pivot to the Pacific has been under way for several years and a number of our important clients and partners are based here in Hawaii," Mr. Stump stated in a press release. "Stanley Consultants has a long history of engineering leadership in the Pacific Islands.  We look forward to joining the 'ohana' of architecture, engineering and environmental professionals in the Hawaiian islands on a permanent basis, and making positive, long-term contributions to solve engineering challenges throughout the Pacific."

The firm is currently performing a property records update at several DOD installations on Oahu. Over the past 10 years, the firm has also provided engineering, design and consulting services to several electric utilities in the Hawaiian Islands, supporting their power generation, power delivery and renewable energy initiatives.
