Indianapolis-based HWC Engineering has announced plans to grow throughout the state. The consulting engineering firm says it will expand its Indianapolis office, open a new regional office in southern Indiana and add 25 jobs by 2018.

HWC says the new jobs will be added in the next three years and will have an average salary of $75,000 per year. The company also plans to maintain its headquarters in Indy.

“We love the benefits of working in downtown Indy, so keeping our headquarters central was a priority for us,” HWC President Ed Jolliffe said.

The company will relocate next summer and is currently negotiating lease terms.

“As our firm continues to grow in Indianapolis and across the state, credit goes to our top-notch employees who are hardworking, innovative and the key to insuring our clients’ success,” Jolliffe said.

The company plans to open a new location in New Albany in early 2016. HWC currently has offices in Indianapolis, Lafayette, Terre Haute, Muncie and Scottsburg.
