PFES Named as a Top 50 Program Management Firm in 2022 by Engineering News-Record

This is the third consecutive year the firm has been recognized

Chicago, Illinois (June 23, 2022) — PFES, part of The Planet Group and a premier provider of strategic consulting services for the energy and utility sectors, continues its rapid growth with recognition by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as one of the Top 50 Program Management Firms. This is the third year the firm has been recognized with this honor, climbing from #46 in 2020 to #32 on 2022’s rankings.

Additionally, ENR recognized PFES as one of the largest US Construction Management/PM-for-Fee Firms.

According to ENR, as supply chain disruptions threaten to shelve some projects completely, more owners are using professional services firms like PFES, to help reconfigure limited staff resources and keep schedules moving forward.

Alfred Mackey, PFES Senior Vice President of Operations, believes that 2022 will be similar to 2021 “regarding access to capital and managing materials constraints.”

“Our [strategy] has been to establish strong and dynamic partnerships across industries,” Mackey says. “Due to the influence the coronavirus had on the global marketplace, we have continued to develop innovative procurement strategies for our utility clients as well as build progressive relationships with international manufacturers in order to fill production slots.”

Founded in 2012, PFES has managed billions of dollars in capital projects related to power generation, power delivery and natural gas distribution. The company has experienced tremendous year-over-year growth as utilities and energy companies have relied on the firm’s expertise to complete large-scale CapEx projects efficiently and with significant cost savings.
