Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, July 13, 2020 – IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC, a leading provider of engineering, procurement, construction management, and validation (EPCMV) services, is proud to announce that they have joined an elite group of award-winning firms honored by Zweig Group. The Trifecta Award celebrates high-performance firms winning in three categories in a single year. The categories depict firms that create a great working environment, operational growth, and excellence in marketing.
Best Firms to Work For – Ranked #1 In Design/Build
This award celebrates top AEC (Architectural, Engineering, Environmental & Construction industry) firms in North America based on employee satisfaction, workplace practices, benefits, retention rates, and more. IPS is the only company to win in the Design/Build category. “With recruitment and retention continuing to be the greatest challenges for firms, this contest, the only national best places to work for the AEC industry, is more important than ever,” said Zweig Group CEO Chad Clinehens. “Add the current pandemic to the mix, and it is even more critical for firms to find measurable ways to reinforce their culture and the good things they are doing and creating.”
“We were delighted with the very high employee participation and high rankings from our employees,” stated Mark Butler, President and Managing Director - Americas. “It shows that our staff are not only engaged but that they know their opinion matters and that we will take meaningful actions to continue to make IPS a great place to have a thriving career.”
Hot Firm Award – Ranked #9
The Hot Firm list recognizes the 100 fastest-growing AEC firms in the United States and Canada. These firms have outperformed the economy and competitors to become leaders in their chosen fields.
“We take pride in having the best people working for us, not just for their technical expertise, but for the positive and collaborative culture they exhibit with each other and our clients,” stated Dave Goswami, IPS Chairman and CEO. “IPS has been on a continuous growth journey since 2007. Our steep growth is a product of our winning strategy, as well as our attention to quality and client services, and our dedicated staff’s knowledge, skill and passion. Our success is also made possible by the invaluable support we get from our industry friends like the vendors, subcontractors, and industry peers.”
Marketing Excellence Award – #1 In Advertising
The Marketing Excellence Award recognizes outstanding and effective marketing in the AEC industry based upon overall creativity, messaging, results achieved by the campaign, and level of design. IPS won for their CarTon™ campaign, launched at the 2019 ISPE Annual Meeting. CarTon is IPS’ end-to-end integrated operational readiness compliance solution for cell and gene therapy facilities. Where speed to market is critical for saving lives, CarTon simplifies the complex maze of activities required to bring a new cell and gene therapy facility to a fully operational state. This bundled service offering is the only one of its kind in the marketplace.
“Our role in marketing is to promote the mission of our organization, the successes of our talented staff, and the technical advances that solve our clients’ challenges,” stated Ana Collins, Head of Global Marketing and Communications at IPS. “In the case of CarTon, marketing a solution that provides immediate value to companies whose products save lives is a rewarding experience. We are honored that Zweig recognized the positive impact of our campaign.”
