RTM Engineering Consultants has recently merged with BG Buildingworks, a respected engineering design consulting firm known for its collaborative communication, innovative problem solving, and exceptional engineering solutions. With four office locations across Colorado and New Mexico, BG brings valuable expertise and a strong reputation for excellence to the combined team. This strategic merger not only strengthens RTM's presence in the Rockies and Southwest but also reinforces a shared vision for sustainable growth and innovation.

“We are excited to welcome the BG Buildingworks team to RTM,” said Tony Mirchandani, CEO of RTM. “Their overwhelmingly positive reputation with clients and partners, along with their similar workplace culture, makes them an ideal partner for us. Together, we are poised to create an even stronger company, setting the stage for a promising journey ahead.”

With a rich history in design, BG brings an impressive portfolio of experience in mechanical, electrical, plumbing, technology, acoustics, lighting design, and energy services, perfectly complementing RTM’s service offerings. Additionally, BG provides insight to building system integration through commissioning and testing and balancing services for optimal performance. Through tailored project solutions, BG’s consulting services help enhance systems across multiple market sectors including civic, commercial, K-12 and higher education, government, healthcare, hospitality, multifamily residential, and custom homes.

Both RTM and BG share a like-minded vision for the future and a commitment to excellence, which will serve as the cornerstone of their combined success. By leveraging the strengths of both leadership teams, this integration aims to enhance overall capacity. This approach emphasizes the importance of fostering a culture of shared knowledge and teamwork, expanding career opportunities for the entire team.

“We see tremendous potential in merging our resources with RTM,” stated Dan Koelliker, president of BG Buildingworks. “We are creating new opportunities for our team members to thrive and advance in their careers, and with our values closely aligned, we’re excited to leverage our combined strengths to provide even greater value to our clients.”

The strategic merger between RTM and BG marks a significant milestone for both firms. With the addition of four new offices in Albuquerque, Avon, Fort Collins, and Lakewood, and a combined team of more than 500 professionals across the country, RTM is positioned for even greater success moving forward. The collaboration between the two firms promises not only to ensure the continued delivery of exceptional engineering solutions and the strengthening of client relationships nationwide, but also to foster an environment where team members can work, grow, and thrive in their careers. Together, the firms are poised to make a collective impact and shape the future of engineering in the western region and beyond.
