FIRM OVERVIEW

Ascent Engineering Group is a well established Consulting Engineering firm in business since 1959.  We have offices in Richmond and Roanoke, Virginia.

WHAT WE DO

Ascent Engineering Group, Inc. specializes in engineering and design of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, and Information Technology Systems for K-12 educational facilities, higher education facilities of all types, health care facilities, commercial buildings, animal care facilities, retirement facilities, and local governments.  Professional Engineering service constitutes the entire activity for the firm, which produces plans, specifications, studies, reports, energy analysis, and construction administration services.

HOW WE DO IT

We believe in conducting business with honesty, integrity, and excellence.  Our goal is not to do what is best for us, but rather what is best for the Owner. Ascent has no financial interest in the construction industry, or the manufacturing or sale of equipment.  For new construction or renovation projects, we provide all of the engineering necessary for the satisfactory design, installation, and operation of the mechanical and electrical systems.  Ascent is an equal opportunity employer.

MEASURING SUCCESS

The best measure of our performance and project success is a satisfied client.  Our firm’s longterm goals focus on providing higher quality engineering documents.  Ascent desires to be the best MEP firm, not the largest MEP firm.  We believe quality is not defined by size, but is proven.  The effort to create superb engineering documents and genuine service has resulted in an excellent engineering reputation for the firm, consisting of Owner clients and architects with whom long-standing relationships exist.  This reputation has been formed from both capital projects and open-end contracts.

MARKETING PHILOSOPHY

The marketing philosophy of our Principals is that the best tool in marketing is the quality of the last project completed.  Ascent is blessed to have many repeat clients, who, to our appreciation, have given us exceptional references and helped us build new clients in many locations and venues.  The majority of our most valued relationships started with small projects through open-end contract experience.  In most cases, these relationships have evolved into successful capital projects.

COMMITMENT TO CONSULTING

Ascent is not only a strong believer in its personal work, but also in the consulting engineering profession as a whole.  This dedication to the business is a direct reflection of the Principals’ commitment to the engineering profession and its creed of service to the public.  We strive to conduct our consulting experience with excellence, integrity, and professionalism.
