CONSOR Expands into Mountain West with Acquisition of Project Engineering Consultants

CONSOR is excited to announce our latest partnership with Project Engineering Consultants (PEC), a Utah-based multidisciplinary engineering firm that’s served government, municipal, and private clients for the past 39 years. Specializing in transportation, water, and construction management, PEC is an ideal partner to establish the CONSOR name in the Mountain West—a fact that’s underscored by a mutual commitment to fostering the growth of staff and building connections with clients.

“It’s all about relationships for us,” says Chris Rayasam, CONSOR’s Chief Operating Officer, who’s been working closely with PEC’s leadership team over the past few months. “We could tell right away that PEC’s team shares our belief that building trust, both internally and externally, is the key to success in this business. People-focused service at the local level is what sets CONSOR apart, and it’s exactly what we look for in partnerships, and it’s clear this has been a big factor in PEC’s success over the past four decades.”

When asked what makes CONSOR a good fit for PEC, Leo Florence echoes Rayasam: “PEC wasn’t looking to sell when CONSOR came along. In fact, when other firms approached us, we just weren’t interested as the fit was never quite right. The difference for us with CONSOR was the people. This is an incredible opportunity to join forces with a like-minded company that does business the right way, all while maintaining our local autonomy and gaining the benefits of being a larger operation without our staff becoming a number or cog in the machine.”  

The synchronicity doesn’t end there, though. In addition to their complementary ethos and service offerings, the firms are positioned to leverage each other’s burgeoning thought-leadership and expertise in water engineering, as well as a growing presence in Arizona. As a collective in the Mountain West, the firms have offices in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and Idaho, allowing for a comprehensive and local service throughout the region.

With PEC’s stated mission to “provide clients and communities with forward-thinking, innovative solutions, and cost-effective services so that they can achieve more,” we’re united in delivering exceptional service and creative solutions to our clients and their communities. CONSOR is thrilled to welcome PEC’s team of nearly 100 professionals who share our dedication to excellence.
