Founded in 1988, Engineering Consulting Services (ECS) is a leader in geotechnical, construction materials, environmental and facilities engineering. At that time, our goal was to raise the standards of professional consulting engineering by hiring industry professionals who understood the complexities of building and maintaining modern infrastructures. Our company success spans multiple industry sectors. Our steady growth comes from a deep belief in developing the people, systems and expertise required to focus on client needs. Today, with 2,500 employees, ECS has grown to more than 80 offices and testing facilities spread across the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Southeast and Southwest. ECS is currently ranked 2 in Zweig Group’s Hot Firms List (Zweig Group, June 2023), 61 in Engineering News-Record’s Top 500 Design Firms (ENR, April 2023), and 131 in Engineering News-Record’s Top 200 Environmental Firms (ENR, July 2023).
Our Unique Strengths
Diversity isn’t simply a quota or a participation percentage, it is the natural result of an organization that values every voice, respects different opinions and listens to all viewpoints. We’re committed to developing teams where the perspectives of everyone are heard and are taken seriously. Not only does this lead to innovative, groundbreaking solutions for our clients, it helps us form relationships that go beyond just business.
Our growth is an outcome of our commitment and dedication to the success of our clients and employees. As a culture of doers, we roll up our sleeves and use our skills to help solve problems. We hustle. This commitment allows ECS to grow in each market we serve. As ECS continues to grow organically and through strategic acquisitions, we will succeed together.
ECS has grown from a few individuals with vision for a better way, to a company with 2500 employees and 80+ offices. We are a blend of the life and professional experiences of every employee, past and present. As we continue to evolve, it is important to provide a compass to our employees and define what this company believes in. Our Core Values serve as an anchor for who we are and what we represent.
