Contact the BVH team

The BVH team’s capabilities and portfolio complement Salas O’Brien’s existing work in New England, particularly with large higher education, healthcare, and other mission-critical facilities.

As the next step in Salas O’Brien’s strategy to be local everywhere, with international resources, the BVH team will continue to be managed by its current leadership team and will adopt the Salas O’Brien name after a transition period. The BVH team will also collaborate with teams from across Salas O’Brien to offer our clients expanded capabilities and subject matter expertise as needed.

The merger closed on June 1, 2021, and news was shared just after the close with both the BVH and Salas O’Brien teams.

We are highly selective with the leaders and teams we partner with. In every case, the leaders and team members are totally committed to our team success and realize that together we are a stronger team that creates more opportunities for our team members and clients. As I got to know Karl, Tom, and rest of the BVH team, I was so excited to realize how similar, yet complementary, we are—and I became totally confident that we will be successful together.
Darin AndersonChairman and CEO, Salas O’Brien

Salas O’Brien continues to grow as part of an ambitious plan to create the most respected engineering firm in the world as measured by our clients and team members.

“I cannot imagine a better merger partner for BVH than Salas O’Brien. Our clients will benefit from the increased expertise we can now offer, but even more importantly, they can rest assured that our local team remains engaged and ready to serve them, both now and long into the future. The future is bright for our team and clients with Salas O’Brien.
Karl FreyCEO, BVH Integrated Services
