BREWER – CES, Inc., a Maine-headquartered firm of engineers, environmental scientists, and land surveyors, is excited to announce that the company will move its headquarters to One Merchants Plaza in Bangor in 2020.

“We are very pleased to be moving to One Merchants Plaza in downtown Bangor. Our current location has served us well over the past 40 years but with our continued growth, we needed more space to accommodate the increasing number of employees who work in our headquarters,” said CES President and CEO Denis St. Peter. “With the commitment from the purchaser of the building, David St. Germain, to provide a significant investment in addressing the deferred maintenance, we became very excited about the opportunity. The move also allows us to update our working space to match our goals of attracting and retaining high caliber employees and will be a reflection of our quality and service we provide to clients.”

After hiring 19 new employees since January 2017 and predictions for additional hiring in the future, the company’s leadership understood that a new commercial location was needed.

“CES has been able to grow from a two-person civil engineering firm into the multi-disciplined professional consulting company we are today because of our clients. The bigger location will help us adapt to clients’ needs by strategically hiring technical experts in a new service or bringing additional depth to the services we offer. For example, we have hired five employees to bolster our building services work in the past 18 months to accommodate clients’ needs,” said St. Peter. “With the limited space at our current location, we realized that we did not want a physical space to hold us back when it came to adding or expanding a service.”

CES will take over the top two floors at One Merchants Plaza which is approximately 18,000 sf, and there are options for additional space and parking needs. The current location at 465 South Main Street, Brewer, is approximately 14,000 sf. The Brewer building is listed with Epstein Commercial Real Estate.

“As one of the Best Places to Work in Maine, we want to ensure that our employees have a functional work space,” said St. Peter. “Our leadership team also saw this move as an opportunity to update employee working space to a more modern configuration that capitalizes on the One Merchants Plaza’s natural light and building layout that is conducive to CES’ operating structure.”

CES is expected to move into One Merchants Plaza in the first quarter of 2020 after the improvements to the building and leased space are completed.
