Firm Biography

Connelly & Wicker Inc., established in Jacksonville, Florida in 1983, is a multi-disciplined firm providing professional services in both the public and private sectors of civil, highway and utility engineering, landscape architecture and site planning.

The firm was established by Robert D. Connelly, P.E. and Marvin L. Wicker, P.E to provide civil engineering services to developers and governmental agencies.  Mr. Connelly brought general civil engineering expertise, and Mr. Wicker had a wealth of utility design experience.  Richard Welch joined the firm in 1985 and assumed the firm’s position of President in 1999.  In 1996, Andrew Cummings was recruited to lead the transportation and municipal engineering practice.  Michael Holbrook joined the firm in 2015 to lead the landscape architecture practice.

The early years of the firm were spent growing both the firm’s land development and local and federal government business.  In the 1990’s the firm’s government sector work grew to become a significant portion of the company’s business.  Clients included the U.S. Department of the Navy, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Florida Department of Transportation, City of Jacksonville and St. Johns County.

Since the beginning of the new century, the second generation leadership continues to grow the company’s land development and governmental work.  Connelly & Wicker can deliver professional services using the traditional design-bid-build delivery method and the design-build delivery method.  An example of our growth is the company’s graduation from the Florida Department of Transportation’s Small Business Enterprise program in 2017.
