Bloomfield, CT – BVH Integrated Services, a multi-disciplined consulting engineering firm, recently announced the opening of its new headquarters, which complements the firm’s other location in Newton, Mass., that also recently underwent a renovation.

The new Connecticut office is located at 206 West Newberry Road in Bloomfield and boasts 24,000sf of space to accommodate its 105 current employees. The building, which was previously the home to CREC Museum Academy for preschool and kindergarten, underwent a total renovation to create a space that meets the needs of BVH’s company culture and engineering process.

The new office space includes multiple collaboration stations, state-of-the-art technology, an employee café, and an open floor plan to help foster interaction and creative thinking.

The firm also announced the following leadership changes: James W. Ohlheiser, PE, LEED AP, chairman of the board; George Iskra, PE, board member; Karl F. Frey, P.E., CEO; and Thomas St. Denis, P.E., LEED AP, president. Gregory H. Van Deusen, PE, senior vice president, will remain part of the senior management team.

“We are excited to begin the New Year in our new and innovative headquarters,” said Karl Frey, CEO. “The Bloomfield office provides more space to help further expand our workforce, and creates an environment that fosters mentoring, knowledge transfer, and cooperation among the various engineering departments.”

“We sought input from our employees on technology, common spaces, and the open space layout – much of which was incorporated into the final design to ensure the new space would meet the needs and goals of the company,” added Thomas St. Denis, President.
