Essential Systems Engineering Joins Forces with McGill Associates

LONGTIME ASHEVILLE ENGINEERING FIRMS UNITE

McGill Associates is pleased to announce that Essential Systems Engineering, a mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering firm based in Asheville, NC, has joined the McGill Associates’ team. Since 1985, Essential Systems Engineering has provided quality MEP design services to clients for both new construction and building renovation projects across North Carolina and has been one of McGill Associates’ longtime partners.

With both companies possessing similar views of complete project delivery, client service, and commitment to innovative engineering solutions, this combination of resources makes for a natural fit.  Additionally, Essential Systems Engineering brings a specific emphasis on sustainable and renewable energy technologies, including a strong resume in the solar energy and geothermal heating markets.

“Bob Wiggins, PE, president of Essential Systems Engineering, and his team, bring a wealth of experience which complements our current practice disciplines to the overall benefit of our clients,” said Joel Storrow, PE, president of McGill Associates. “We are excited to formally merge with another longtime Asheville-based business and diversify our program of services.”
