Terracon Expands Facilities Engineering Services

Energy Systems Associates, Inc. (ESA) with headquarters in Round Rock, TX, and a branch office in Houston, has been acquired by Terracon. Established in 1982, ESA has provided mechanical and electrical consulting services and designs for more than 500 schools, hospitals, commercial, and industrial facilities around the country, with the majority of the work in the state of Texas. ESA is heavily involved in energy management consulting as well as building commissioning and retrocommissioning. Most of the firm’s projects have been the direct result of investment grade energy audits.

The acquisition of ESA is part of a broader strategy by Terracon to expand our service offerings to owners and operators of existing facilities, allowing them to address existing issues within the facility to operate it more profitably and efficiently.

“Most of our clientele have historically associated Terracon with providing services to support real estate development and transactions,” said Kevin Langwell, LEED AP, senior vice president and director of Terrcon’s Facilities Services division. “Providing geotechnical engineering, environmental services, and construction materials engineering and testing associated with real estate development is traditionally how most of our revenue has been generated over the years. With owners and operators trying to maximize the remaining useful life of their facilities and operate them as efficiently as possible over a longer life span, there is a great need for facilities engineering services.”

Terracon is providing services to clients from multiple industries in the area of building science and forensics (including building envelope studies and cause and origin investigations), physical needs assessments, roof and pavement consulting, and energy consulting services.

“Our clients can now rely on us to take them from a cradle to grave scenario over the life cycle of their facilities,” said Langwell. “Through our in-house services, as well as strategic alliances we’ve developed, we have the tools and resources to help our clients improve efficiencies, extend the life, and maximize the return on the significant investment they’ve made in their real estate assets.”
