Location choice is a natural fit for the innovator of high quality, low energy, and high efficiency buildings, with successful East Coast operation and German roots

Washington DC-based Ebert & Baumann Consulting Engineers, Inc. (EB) is thrilled to announce their expansion to Chicago, IL. EB, an enterprise of the German Ebert-Consulting Group, will open their second US location in the Windy City as of March 18, 2013. The firm has chosen their new location with the support of World Business Chicago (WBC). ”Chicago is a place of history and innovation for the built environment. Thus, the city is a natural fit for us as a leading engineering and consulting firm for high quality, low energy, and high efficiency buildings, “states Oliver Baumann, President of Ebert & Baumann Consulting Engineers, Inc. “With our downtown location, we can best serve the local industry, attract young talent and expand our reach throughout the Midwest with the city’s excellent travel connections.”

“We look forward to welcoming Ebert & Baumann Consulting Engineers, Inc. as we work to make Chicago the greenest city,“ Karen Weigert, Chief Sustainability Officer, City of Chicago

Chicago continues to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency. Programs and initiatives such as the Sustainable Chicago 2015 Action Agenda and the Chicago Infrastructure Trust attest to that. In addition, the city maintains its number one position in terms of LEED certifications with 372 certified projects as of January 2013. „Mayor Emanuel’s leadership is delivering environmental and economic results throughout the city. Last week we announced a doubling in the size of the Commercial Buildings Initiative of Retrofit Chicago and we look forward to welcoming Ebert & Baumann Consulting Engineers, Inc. as we work to make Chicago the greenest city,“ affirms Karen Weigert, Chief Sustainability Officer, City of Chicago. With EB’s upcoming opening, the firm brings a wealth of experience and innovation to match and advance the city’s position as a pioneer in the green movement. In the new location, EB will provide their portfolio of professional consulting and engineering services for the entire building life-cycle featuring:

  • Innovative Building Concepts
  • Integrated Energy Master Planning
  • Green Building Management/LEED & DGNB Consulting
  • Simulation & Modeling
  • Commissioning & Energy Audits

“EB has served as an innovator on the East Coast and beyond, boasting a 100% LEED certification success rate (including targeted certification level) and offering in-house researched and developed services like operation diagnostics and integrated energy master planning, in addition to your standard building engineering services. Now we are eager to work with the Chicago-based design and construction industry offering our unique portfolio,” concludes Baumann on the firm’s latest expansion. The company will begin with two employees and a sublease agreement in the loop, with plans to grow to a team of six to seven in 2013, and a staff of twelve to fifteen within the next two to three years, eventually occupying 3,500 – 4,000 SF of office space.
