technical assessment and project management services with the acquisition of EMG

Fort Lauderdale, FL, March 1, 2018 – Bureau Veritas has acquired EMG, a leader in building and construction technical assessment and project management services for government, institutional and commercial industries. 

Founded in 1986, EMG offers clients a broad range of services around the life cycle of their facilities including engineering and environmental assessments upon acquisition or financing, capital planning, and program and project management. Real estate owners, retailers, commercial lenders, institutional owners, and government entities benefit from EMG’s integrated and scalable operational processes and technologies and its national team of experienced subject matter experts and project managers. With over 550 employees, EMG has a track record of more than a million completed projects across all 50 states in the U.S.

EMG expands Bureau Veritas’ already impressive building and infrastructure service offering, strengthening Bureau Veritas’ position as a leading strategic partner for construction and renovation inspection, quality assurance, asset management, periodic in-service inspection, and project management.

Natalia Shuman, Bureau Veritas’ Executive Vice-President and CEO, North America Commodities and Industry & Facilities Operating Group, stated:

“Bureau Veritas is constantly striving to add technical capabilities and expertise to expand the value we provide to clients.  EMG builds upon our leading position in the building and infrastructure market, but more importantly, EMG’s customer-centric corporate culture, which is rooted in every EMG consultant, architect, engineer, and project manager, makes EMG a perfect fit for Bureau Veritas’ solution-based approach to client relationships.”

Nestor Benavides, EMG CEO stated:

“All of us at EMG are excited to be the newest member of the Bureau Veritas Group. Bureau Veritas’ global reputation as a leader in testing, inspection and certification expands the value we can provide to our clients, not only in facilities, construction, and management, but in a wide array of other services areas.  We are eager to present our clients with new opportunities to mitigate risk and improve performance. Joining forces with Bureau Veritas is an exceptional fit for both organizations, and we are looking forward to presenting our joint value proposition to both EMG and Bureau Veritas clients.
