EUA Announces Merger with Performa Inc.

Dec 14, 2021

Zweig Group, a full-service AEC management advisory firm, announced its client EUA has expanded its reach and service offerings by merging with Performa. This merger expands EUA’s reach, enhancing the firm’s ability to serve clients across the U.S. and attract and retain top talent.

Jamie Claire Kiser, Zweig Group’s managing principal, served as EUA’s lead advisor on the engagement.

“EUA and Performa are both very high quality, high performing firms with insightful leadership and a strong vision for the future,” said Tracey Eaves, a valuation services advisor with Zweig Group. “EUA and Performa complement each other from a culture and work ethic perspective, and their collective clients will certainly be the beneficiaries of the business combination.”

EUA has a national reach with local expertise. Since 1907, the firm has grown to more than 200 employees throughout offices in Wisconsin and Colorado. This merger will grow EUA further, from three to five offices. Once complete, this merger will make EUA an architecture, engineering, and design firm with more than 100 years of experience and more than 250 employees in five markets.

The integration of Performa brings EUA new mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural engineering service offerings. EUA’s existing relationships with external engineering partners are very important and offer a unique opportunity to leverage internal consultative engineering expertise. In the future, EUA will look for opportunities to strategically leverage its new offerings, thoughtfully add engineering talent, and continue to be a trusted partner.
