RETTEW Expands to the West

Nationally Recognized Design Firm’s Success with Prominent Oil and Gas Clients Prompts Opening of Denver Office

Lancaster, Pa. – RETTEW, an Engineering News-Record (ENR) top 200 design firm today announced expansion of its operations to the West. The firm recently signed a lease for office space located at 1536 Cole Boulevard, Building 4, Suite 100, Lakewood, CO, 80401.

With horizontal and directional drilling increasing oil and gas exploration in the Rocky Mountain region, clients with whom RETTEW has worked extensively in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale play and Ohio’s Utica Shale play are also operating in the West and requesting to work with RETTEW. The opening of a Denver office now positions RETTEW to provide engineering, consulting and construction related services to clients involved in oil and gas extraction in some of the country’s most prolific oil and gas plays, including Bakken Formation, Powder River Basin, Jonah Field, Green River Basin, Piceance Basin, Uinta Basin and San Juan Basin.

“RETTEW’s oil and gas clients rely on our expertise, our hyper-responsiveness, our employees and our reputation for superior service delivery to ensure a successful operation,” said Mark Lauriello, PE, president, RETTEW. “Expanding to the West enables us to now offer those attributes to clients in the Rocky Mountain region.”

Because of its unique approach to working with oil and gas clients, RETTEW is considered a leading provider of engineering, consulting and construction related services to some of the world’s largest oil and gas companies. The firm’s success in the energy and utilities market has enabled RETTEW to achieve dramatic, unprecedented growth. Since its involvement in the energy and utilities market, RETTEW has doubled its staff, opened four additional offices and expanded three existing offices. In April, RETTEW jumped a record 249 spots on ENR’s annual list of top 500 design firms in the country. The leap in the ENR ranking garnered RETTEW the title of “fastest-growing firm on the Top 500 this year,” according to ENR. The firm’s ten other offices are located in Eastern and Midwestern United States.

“RETTEW’s growth has been customer-driven and only possible through the hard work and dedication of talented staff,” added Lauriello. The Denver facility will house engineers, surveyors and environmental scientists. States that RETTEW will be able to serve through its Denver location include Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota. 

RETTEW’s sister company, Rettew Flowback Inc. (RFI), also supports the oil and gas industry by providing flowback treatment, frac support and construction services to exploration and production firms. RFI designed a mobile treatment system that recycles 100 percent of flowback and production waters, which can be used in subsequent completions operations. RFI’s on-site system conserves water and reduces off-site trucking.
