When my daughter was born, my wife and I decided to leave California. We wanted to stay in warmer climates, but needed to find a satellite office my wife could transfer to. I sent a letter to the sitting ASHRAE Austin Chapter President and he gave it to Mike. I came out to interview and had an employment offer upon my return.
Ironically, one of our EEA Engineers moved to California shortly thereafter to work for Gap, Inc. He contacted us about MEP design for the Banana Republic brand which lead to our designing for other brands. Retail Engineering represents a significant portion of EEA’s business and is part of our conscious effort for diversification.
Bill’s involvement with ASHRAE leadership continues to allow EEA to remain on the forefront of understanding where the technology of the industry is going.
