TowerPinkster announced its elite recognition as one of 2017’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in the Nation and concurrently, the expansion of its expertise to include technology services.

The architecture and engineering firm has earned the Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in the Nation honor from the National Association for Business Resources every year since 2015. This year they have also been awarded an elite spot in the top 101 companies in the Nation.

The Best and Brightest awards celebrate organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their employee enrichment and human resource practices. TowerPinkster attributes the success of the past year to the commitment of its employees to provide the highest level of services to its clients and its vision regarding enhancements to the firm to provide more unified services.

The addition of technology consultation follows the recent inclusion of structural engineering services at the firm last July. This evolution of the firm is a result of TowerPinkster’s strategic plan and vision to advance its holistic approach to delivering preeminent design services for its clients.

“We strive to enhance and expand our position as we continue to create deeper and stronger partnerships with our clients, delivering even more collaborative and integrated design solutions,” said President and CEO Bjorn Green. “Technology design is a logical growth area for TowerPinkster because it allows our design teams to leverage our expertise to meet more of our clients’ needs.”

Eric Rinehart, RCDD, has joined  TowerPInkster and will lead the  technology services team. Rinehart has over 20 years of experience and has come to TowerPinkster from a regional electric contractor organization.

“By joining TowerPinkster, I will be able to work with clients at the inception of their projects, find ways to make their spaces more efficient through the incorporation of new technologies, and deliver outstanding products that will last for years,” said Rinehart.    

He has most recently been working to implement technology needs for clients in Southwest Michigan, including structured cabling, fiber optics, wireless, access control, security, and audio/visual needs.

“The biggest advantage to having the technology design in-house is that we will be able to provide more seamless solutions for our clients,” said Lentz Becraft, Electrical Department Manager. “Buildings are becoming more and more interconnected across all disciplines, and having the technical expertise in-house will help streamline all the systems.”

The multi-discipline design firm will now offer architecture, interior design, furniture design, landscape architecture, planning services, mechanical, electrical and structural engineering, and technology services.
