ECS History

Founded in 1988, Engineering Consulting Services (ECS) is a leader in geotechnical, environmental, construction materials 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 over 1,500 employees, ECS has grown to more than 50 offices and testing facilities spread across the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Southeast and Southwest. ECS is currently ranked 81 in Engineering News-Record’s Top 500 Design Firms (ENR, April 2017).
