Engineering consulting firm CHA has announced that it has fully integrated Daedalus Projects and JBS Project Management. Daedalus Projects is a Boston-based project management firm focused on education and municipal construction, while New York-based JBS Project Management targets the commercial, residential, and hospitality markets.

The two acquisitions – Daedalus in March 2019 and JBS in July – will allow CHA to broaden its services to include project management and cost-estimation services.

"Bringing our project management and cost estimating services under the CHA brand reaffirms our aspiration to elate our clients by offering them a truly one-stop-shop for design, engineering, and project management," Michael Carroll, CHA’s President and CEO, said.  "We have integrated our teams and service portfolio under a stronger, united brand as we continue to responsibly improve the world we live in."

In 2019, CHA was ranked the 37th largest “pure” design firm in the United States by Engineering News-Record. It operates throughout the US and Canada. In addition to cost estimation and project management the firm offers offers engineering, architectural, survey, construction, and other services clients can leverage to ensure projects are completed on deadline and within budget.

The firm recently worked with the New York Power Authority (NYPA) in the replacement of submarine transmission cables covering 1.7 miles and connecting the NYPA and the Vermont Electric Power Company, providing engineering design, construction inspection, and construction administration services.

It also provided a bevy of services, including project management, permitting support, and construction administration, for airport taxiway relocations at the Greater Rochester International Airport in Rochester, New York – a project requiring 7,200 tons of asphalt pavement and 9.500 cubic yards of crushed aggregate base. CHA also worked with the Boston Public Library on a $78-million renovation of the library’s Johnson Building, for which it provided cost-estimation services. 

"The complete integration and rebranding of these two market-leading project management firms as CHA aligns with our strategic approach to providing clients with fully integrated solutions and seamless delivery of services," Jim Stephenson, CHA’s chief strategy officer, said. "The integration further supports our approach to serving clients with extensive resources and consistent delivery from across the enterprise and throughout CHA's entire geographic footprint."
