amplifying growth for a benchmark engineering company
ERICHSEN & HORGEN
Being the benchmark in HVAC engineering creates a solid foundation for growth. Erichsen & Horgen had experienced profitable growth over the past several years. With that, the company also experienced growing pains with people, projects and processes. This additionally raised questions about their approach to business development, communication and recruitment.
Essentially, the company needed a coherent strategy to fuel further profitable growth.
The construction industry is dependent on multiple entities being able to collaborate to create new buildings and areas where people live, work and play. From architects to city planners, to engineers and designers.
Usually, Erichsens & Horgen would take on the role as the HVAC experts within a larger project, and would typically never own the entire engineering project.
Market insight demonstrated that this industry is rapidly changing. There will be a shift of responsibility, project mandates and technology requirements that moves the responsibility towards consultants who have traditionally taken an advisory role.
We created a foundation for repositioning Erichsen & Horgen, by using their expert role, to elevate the firm to a new level. This was based on the uniqueness of their competence and the core idea of the firm: creating spaces where people thrive.
Almost immediately, Erichsen & Horgen experienced a shift in focus, internal culture and process management. This resulted in faster decision making, clearer strategic direction and rapid profitable growth.
Today, 2 years later, Erichsen & Horgen has almost doubled in size. They have won significant projects on their own and opened offices in three new locations. The company continues to grow and solidify its new and stronger position in the market.
