IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC is one of the fastest-growing companies in the AEC industry with a global reach that spans over 17 countries in five continents. Through the acquisition by Berkshire Hathaway in 2022, IPS proudly became part of the multinational conglomerate’s family of companies.
IPS was founded in 1989, as a unique firm focused on aligning our services with the business drivers of our clients and delivering projects on an integrated design-build platform. It was quite innovative and bold at that time. Since then, we have developed, executed, and advanced a number of strategies to reach our global status today.
Throughout IPS’ history, there have been many activities that have positively impacted the company, including the appointment of new executive leadership in 2007 when Dave Goswami was placed at the helm of the organization. This was a critical point in our business as Dave and his leadership team set their vision in place to spearhead our growth. It was at that time that IPS moved from an execution-based company to a knowledge-based company and attracted several Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) that do not just design and construct facilities but solve a client’s problem. Our extensive roster of industry-recognized SMEs – a large number of whom have owner-side operating experience – possess deep global regulatory, and best-in-class technical expertise.
Continuing on the path of growth, IPS became a majority investor in The Cardinal Group, based in Burlington, Massachusetts, in 2019. With this addition, IPS’ construction management services gained a larger presence in the Northeast United States and the ability to further support fast-track delivery of life sciences projects, enabling clients to get their products to market quickly and safely.
In 2021 IPS took a significant step in advancing our best-in-class services around the globe with the acquisition of multinational consulting firm Linesight. By incorporating their construction consultancy services and strategic support to multiple sectors, IPS has become one of the AEC industry's fastest-growing organizations. Today, IPS remains at the forefront of new technologies and innovations in the industry. Clients reach out to us because of our recognizable brand of knowledge leadership. As we continue to grow with the support of Berkshire Hathaway, we do not lose sight of what has brought us here today: listening to the needs and challenges of our clients and providing integrated project and business solutions that help them create and manufacture life-impacting products.
