25 Years and Building!
HEA is extremely proud to be marking our 25th anniversary – a significant milestone that not many companies achieve. It is particularly gratifying to be celebrating this anniversary as the future for commissioning looks so bright. A whopping 25 years ago, back in 1995, HEA was created. To put this into perspective, when I started HEA, Bill Clinton was President, the first Toy Story movie was released and some of you were not even born yet!
A big reason for HEA being successful for the past 25 years, is our strong belief and understanding of WHY we provide our services. A “why” statement is not about making money; that’s the result. The why is a purpose, cause or belief. It is the very reason HEA exists! HEA’s “why” statement is, “We believe everyone deserves to live and work in a building that is efficient and operates the way it was intended to.”
You can see our commitment to quality buildings reflected in our portfolio of important projects. HEA has shaped cities and left our mark of excellence with our involvement in projects across the nation, such as: National September 11 Memorial & Museum, Tappan Zee Bridge, New York Times HQ, LaGuardia Airport, Brookfield Towers, USTA Armstrong Stadium, Javits Center Expansion, Turkish House, Target stores nationwide, projects for Ford, GM, Mercedes Benz across North America, UM Mott Children’s Hospital, large-scale data centers and cleanrooms, to name just a few! It makes me exceedingly proud to see the work we are doing and the impact we are having in the communities we work in.
There have been many challenges and rewards that I have learned from and I appreciate them all. Our continued success comes from our two most significant assets, our employees and customers. To be in business for 25 years requires having incredible people in your organization. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work every day with a group of talented, passionate and caring people. Your willingness to give of yourselves and help each other is extraordinary and is deeply admired.
Thank you for working tirelessly to make this milestone possible. To all our employees, customers, and friends, here’s to another 25 fantastic years.
