Donation to local nonprofit underscores commitment to community; Decades of leadership and innovation deliver growth and garner national recognition
CHICAGO, Sept. 21, 2016 – RTM Engineering Consultants, a trusted engineering consulting partner to some of the nation’s most respected architectural firms and Fortune 500 companies, is celebrating 35 years of continued growth.
Founded in 1981 by Ramesh Mirchandani, P.E., the firm has become a nationally recognized, full-service mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection (MEP/FP) firm dedicated to providing sustainable, quality designs and engineering solutions to industrial, commercial, and retail builds as well as other complex building types such as healthcare and laboratory facilities.
RTM CEO Tony Mirchandani remarked: “Our passion for superior engineering and continuous innovation has helped us achieve this important milestone. We owe our success to our tremendously talented team and I’m proud of our shared commitment to serve our clients with excellence. Our commitment to service also extends to the communities where we work. In honor of our 35th anniversary, we’re making a $35 donation on behalf of every employee. Giving back is a hallmark of our culture and we’re proud to be donating to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.”
Mirchandani noted that RTM has a number of exciting projects particularly within the sustainability and healthcare sectors. The company launched its Sustainability Studio earlier this year to strengthen the firm’s commitment to green building solutions and to accelerate sustainable and energy-efficient designs for clients. As part of a Green Works Initiative project in the city of Orlando, RTM was brought in to perform As Designed evaluations per ASHRAE’s Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) program at numerous buildings owned and operated by the city. RTM’s sustainability professionals are creating energy benchmarking models as a way to improve energy efficiency within facilities in Orlando.
This year, RTM has received numerous awards and honors, including the Inc. 5000 List of America’s fastest growing private firms and Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s MEP Giants List, which ranks top MEP/FP engineering firms within the United States. The company also earned a spot on the Zweig Group’s Hot Firm List, while also receiving the Zweig Group’s Best Firms to Work for honor.
RTM is hosting a special event for employees, partners and clients to celebrate its milestone anniversary as well as recent awards on September 22 in Chicago. To learn more about the full-service MEP/FP firm, click here.
