Background Information

IES, Inc. was established as an environmental consulting firm in 1986. Our company evolved from the restructuring of Somerville Engineering, Inc., a consulting firm with over 30 years experience. This restructuring allowed IES to more effectively address the needs of its clients, while still retaining a competent and versatile staff. IES has, at its disposal, the expertise of numerous professionals qualified in a wide variety of disciplines.

During the beginning years of IES, our clients included Shawmut Bank, the original Bank of New England, BayBank, Bank of Boston Fleet Bank, and UStrust. Although these were substantial financial institutions, none presently are around to help IES celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Over the past 30 years, in addition to the change in clients, there have been tremendous changes in the environmental industry in both the regulatory and technical aspects.

From the outset, IES has realized sound and steady growth. All of our initial projects were located in eastern Massachusetts area but, as our reputation for quality work has become known and respected, requests for the Company’s services have been generated throughout the New England States, as well as New York and New Jersey.

This welcomed growth pattern has enabled IES to expand its staff of professional engineers and geologists so as to remain expertly outfitted to deal with the ever evolving environmental concerns of our clients. Corresponding with this growth, we have augmented our equipment so as to utilize the sweeping advances in environmental technology. This has, in turn enabled us to expand our repertoire of environmental services to include new areas of expertise such as remediation projects and some in-house testing services.

As indicated, we pride ourselves on the overall depth of experience and knowledge that we possess. Our versatile staff of engineers, geologists, and auxiliary specialists enables us to “tailor make” a team of professionals uniquely qualified to address the particular needs of a given project. Thus, both the immediate and long-term needs of the client can be met expeditiously and according to the highest of professional standards.

Our clients have included financial institutions, real estate professionals, conveyance attorneys, private businesses, developers, franchises, insurance companies and individuals.

In performing our professional endeavors, we have always emphasized close company/client coordination, thereby enabling prompt and effective satisfaction of all project requirements.

Through the operating principles described above, we dedicate the Company’s efforts and strive to meet our clients’ needs, from concept to completion.
