From tunnels, conveyance, collection, distribution & storage to drinking water treatment and supply, wastewater treatment, reuse water designs and horizontal directional drilling, the firm has a history of designing innovative and world-record-setting projects and then doing what tried and true design firms do best, breaking our own records.

For 60 years, Hussey Gay Bell has been designing water resources projects – thousands of projects ranging from 50 – 7,000 GPM pump stations, 200+ miles of collections including force mains 2-48” and gravity sewer 8-54” to 150+ miles of water mains ranging from 2-48” and 50+ wastewater treatment plants ranging from 0.098 to 27 MGD.  Not to mention, we have successfully designed more significant horizontal directional drilling projects than any firm in the region – subaqueous lines up to 36” drilled under sensitive coastal watersheds, marshes and under recreational rivers and lines drilled under active highways, railways and bridges. We keep the region moving through smart design while improving system reliabilities through resilient design.

Dear Clients, Industry Partners and Friends of the Firm:

Throughout Hussey Gay Bell’s 62-year history, we have seen times of prosperity and times of struggle. The common denominator during these six decades has been our commitment to our clients, employees and the communities in which we serve. As we now face the COVID-19 crisis, this resolve is no less diminished. 

Currently our offices in Savannah, Charleston, Columbia, Atlanta, Nashville and Statesboro are open and operating, per jurisdictional guidelines. Our leadership team continues to monitor the fluid COVID-19 situation and has adopted new procedures within our offices to ensure the health and well-being of Hussey Gay Bell's greatest asset - our employees and associates. We are adhering to recommendations from the CDC and limiting face-to-face interactions, restricting non-essential travel, and utilizing video conferencing and other smart technologies for communications. We have also developed contingency plans so that we remain in a position of strength to continue our projects remotely, if and when needed, for the weeks and months to come.
