ST. LOUIS — May 15, 2008 — Barry-Wehmiller Design Group opened a new engineering consulting office in Modesto, CA, which will further expand its presence in the California “Central Valley.” The new office strengthens the Design Group’s Western regional presence by adding to the firm’s existing engineering offices located in Sacramento, Calif.; Los Angeles, Calif.; and Denver, Colo.
