RETTEW Diversifies Into Construction-Related Services

Energy Construction Services Provides a Full Range of Construction-Related Services to the Oil and Gas Industry

RETTEW, an Engineering News-Record top 200 design firm providing engineering, transportation, environmental consulting, planning, surveying and safety consulting services, today announced its diversification into construction-related services through the creation of a new company, Energy Construction Services (ECS). ECS provides a full range of construction, supply chain management and design-build services to the oil and gas industry.

“The oil and gas industry operates at a fast pace,” said Yves Pollart, PE, vice president, ECS. “ECS not only knows the breakneck speed at which the industry moves, the firm also has the expertise to keep clients’ projects on budget and ahead of schedule.”

ECS is divided into three divisions: construction, supply chain management and design-build.

Services that fall under the construction division of ECS are site work, utility infrastructure and erosion and sedimentation (E&S) control.

The supply chain management division of ECS provides services that enable clients to purchase products at competitive prices and, whenever possible, locally. For one client, ECS generated a project cost savings totaling $2.1 million through efficient procurement of materials and equipment. In addition to procurement, ECS provides inventory management and control. Savings ECS realized for another client totaled $45,000.

“It’s all about the bottom line,” Pollart added, “and ECS has the supply chain management expertise to help clients effectively manage inventory throughout its entire life cycle.”

The firm’s design-build division is positioned to drive all aspects of a project, from concept, design and permitting to construction of the client’s final product. Design-build shortens the overall project completion schedule and helps to reduce the overall project budget.

In addition to the oil and gas industry, ECS is able to provide services to industrial, utility, engineering and consulting firms. The firm’s office locations enable ECS to efficiently manage operations located in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.

Inquiries regarding ECS can be made by contacting Bill Manna, director, ECS, at 717-385-1886. For more information about the full range of services ECS offers, visit www.ecs-advantage.com.
