Engineering that paints beyond the numbers
WSP + ccrd, a WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff company, is a consulting engineering firm committed to sustainable systems design solutions. Since our founding in 1980 as Texas Energy Engineers, Inc., we have grown to 10 offices throughout the United States in Austin, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Miami, Nashville, Richmond, Phoenix and Washington D.C. As part of the U.S. buildings group of WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, we also provide services from Boston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco.
Over the years, WSP + ccrd has built a solid reputation for innovative MEP systems design and commissioning. We are known for innovative, cost-effective mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and plumbing engineering solutions, but best known for our innovative healthcare, laboratory and research facilities. We also have extensive experience designing aviation facilities, institutional buildings, critical facilities and corporate headquarters.
Turning engineering design into a team sport
What makes WSP + ccrd unique is our relentless commitment to collaborative problem solving. Unlike typical engineering design firms, our MEP engineers are not siloed. Instead, they work as collaborative design teams. Mechanical engineers and electrical engineers interact to create holistic systems designs. Our plumbing designers collaborate with their electrical and mechanical partners to achieve the most elegant––as well as affordable––solution.
Left-brain precision. Right-brain creativity.
Most consulting engineering tends to be left-brained. We recruit and develop MEP engineers who are fully orbed problem-solvers. Here, precise, linear thinking learns to color outside the lines. We challenge our partners to think outside of the box. The result? Innovative system design solutions that break new ground and discovers greater efficiencies.
Sustainable design is the foundation of everything we do. It is never a bolt-on. We create efficient and sustainable energy systems, assuring our clients of a savvy, economical and trouble-free building operation. That, in turn, creates another sort of sustainability: relationship bonds that last for years. This focus has helped ccrd establish solid long-term relationships with numerous Fortune 500 Companies, health care systems, medical facilities, universities and governmental agencies. Over 80 percent of our business is attributed to on-going and past client relationships. That is all part of making engineering an art form.
Building success together
In November 2014, ccrd joined WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, the international engineering consultancy, to become WSP + ccrd. ccrd is now an integrated part of the firm's U.S. buildings business, consisting of 1,150 individuals located in 20 office nationwide and offering complete building engineering services, including Structural, MEP, and a suite of specialty offerings.
