EUA has expanded its reach and service offering by announcing a merger with Performa. This merger expands EUA’s reach, enhancing our ability to serve clients across the U.S. and attracting and retaining top talent.
The firms have similar cultures, work styles and values. To deliver projects with the best talent, EUA and Performa have strategically partnered on several projects over the past year, demonstrating and solidifying our ability to work together to provide a seamless client experience.
EUA has a national reach with local expertise. Since 1907, EUA has grown to more than 200 employees throughout our offices in Wisconsin + Colorado. This merger will grow EUA further, from three to five offices, and the infusion of 50 new talented employees with an engineering practice will provide additional value for our clients and partners.
Over the last two decades EUA and Performa have had healthy regional competition for talent, projects and market share, building awareness and a great level of respect for one another. EUA continues to grow in reach and size, most recently in May 2017 acquiring Burkettdesign, a Denver-based 27-person architecture and interior design firm.
