Phoenix-based 2-D, 3-D imaging firm grows 92 percent
Eco3d, a Phoenix-based portfolio company that measures existing topographic, structural, mechanical and architectural conditions using a variety of instruments in 2-D and 3-D, had a landmark year in 2016, growing 92 percent from 2015.
The Phoenix-based company completed more than 440 projects across North America in 2016 as it continues to cement itself as the largest digital as-built service provider in North America.
Eco3d is the largest stand-alone service provider of its kind in the country with rapid growth nationally and internationally in 2-D and 3-D documentation. Eco3d works on custom projects integrating the latest technologies in industries including: construction, process plants, healthcare, retail, real estate, civil and forensic investigation.
“I am extremely proud of our achievements in 2016. What started with a handful of us working from picnic benches in a local park has turned into 60-plus employees working from our newly renovated headquarters in Phoenix,” said Ken Smerz, president and CEO of Eco3d. “We have enjoyed tremendous success meeting custom client needs on unique projects, working with the largest brands in the world.”
Its continuous work with leading brands such as Regal Entertainment Group, Marriot, Gensler, PCL Construction and McCarthy Building Companies is further validation of Eco3d’s ability to meet the increased demand for more efficient solutions to measure existing topographical, structural, mechanical and architectural conditions.
“As we continue to lead the industry of 3-D measurement and digital documentation, we are excited for the ever-changing dynamics involved with keeping at the forefront of the technology curve to save time and money for our clients on their renovation and construction projects. We are looking ahead to 2017 with a focus on continuing our exponential growth,” Smerz said.
While completing many projects across the country and opening an office in New York, the company remains dedicated to its community in Arizona with recent projects like Meetinghouse 3080, which was the redevelopment of an old church in Scottsdale for potential office space.
In the Valley, Eco3d has created more than 50 jobs within the last three years, more than doubling its number of employees in 2016 alone. The Arizona company continues to drive business regionally, recruiting the most talented people locally and within the Southwest to provide sensational value as a cutting edge technology company.
“Phoenix is our home and we are thrilled to work here and create jobs within the community,” said Smerz. “We are fortunate to work on exciting projects within Phoenix and the state of Arizona, and look forward to continuing our growth here for years to come.”
