History & Culture

ESTABLISHED IN 1999, IES has, over the years, exhibited steady growth, beginning with 13 employees when we started and growing to over 25 employees today.

Initially providing engineering services for building projects to the local community, the firm has earned a reputation as an active member of the design team, providing innovative engineering solutions responsive to the project design, project schedule and budgetary constraints. Our progress as a firm has been made possible not just because of the caliber of our engineering professionals and quality of our drawings, but also because of how we work with clients.

Our service is built on communication and responsiveness. This is what distinguishes IES from others. Regardless of fees or scope, we will always take care of our client. This was true when we established our practice in 1999, and it remains true today. Our service truly sets us apart.
