Lingerfelt CommonWealth Partners LLC has announced that Burns & McDonnell has extended and expanded a lease at 1700 West Loop South in Houston, Texas, US.
The transaction grows the company's footprint from 158 000 ft2 to 218 000 ft2 and increases the floors occupied from eight to 11, enabling the company to hire 300 employees by 2021.
"With our expansion, we'll continue to look for top-notch talent to deliver world-class solutions and expand our broad one-stop shop capabilities in environmental, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) delivery," said Leslie Duke, President and General Manager for Burns & McDonnell in Houston.
Burns & McDonnell's Houston operation is backed by a global team of 7000 employees with more than 50 offices around the world, including regional offices in Houston, Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth.
The firm plans to continue hiring for environmental, project management, engineering, design, construction and project support positions to support oil, gas and chemical, energy and municipal clients.
Duke added: "We're proud to live and work in Houston, delivering multidisciplinary environmental, engineering, architecture and construction solutions to our clients […] From modernising oil and gas plants to developing energy solutions powering our communities to leading environmental permitting, our growth can be attributed to our clients and employees. As an employee-owned firm, we have a stake in the company and have a vested interest in the success of our clients."
Burns & McDonnell plans to increase its footprint in 1700 West Loop South over the next two years and will occupy approximately 85% of the building once buildout construction is complete in late 2021.
