As the St. Louis-based fully-integrated, engineering-led building systems and construction firm celebrates its 15th anniversary, its growth plans include expanding it presence in Arizona and growing the Tempe office. Solutions AEC employs a workforce of 41.

“Solutions AEC has been blessed with a steady stream of great relationships,” said Principal/CEO Matt Ford, PE. “Team members who live by the SAEC core values have strengthened their relationships with each other, our clients, building owners and our community.

“Our most valuable asset is our people. We preach ‘team’ in everything we do, whether it’s teaming with our clients or teaming with good people within the walls of our offices in St Louis and Tempe,” Ford said.

Solution AEC’s Arizona footprint includes Link PHX, a multifamily project at Third and Pierce streets in Phoenix; the City of Phoenix’s 27th Avenue compost facility, an industrial project; Tempe Crossroads, a student housing project; and La Loma, a Sun Health senior living home in Phoenix.

Solutions AEC provides mechanical, electrical, plumbing, design-build construction and engineering services. It is focused on delivering services to owners, general contractors and architects that ensure that building occupants get more building for their money.

The Solutions AEC market share includes industrial; healthcare; multifamily including senior and student living; commercial/mixed use; hospitality; and federal projects.

“We take great pride in the projects to which we’ve added value,” Ford said. “We served as the MEP engineering consultants on the nation’s first Net Zero project under the Living Building Challenge. “Since our establishment we have made a significant impact in the sustainable design and construction industry.

“For 15 years we have been able to team with outstanding contractors, vendors and designers to allow our owners to get more building for their money. Higher efficiency buildings and cost-effective systems that meet their goals for the performance of their building. I’m excited about our people and our 2030 vision and look forward to finding more outstanding people to be a part of that future,” Ford said.
