(Pittsburgh, PA; May 14) – Twelve years into it, things are just getting started at AE Works, an integrated building design and consulting firm.  Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with regional offices in State College, PA and Arlington, VA, the company currently has 35 employees with plans to hire 10 additional staff this year.  The company’s Pittsburgh headquarters will see this growth in addition to plans for a larger office in the Washington, DC metro area.  

Adding staff isn’t the only thing on this growing firm’s radar.   AE Works is on a mission to tame building complexities.  A diverse service offering that provides a seamless experience for clients is how they are working toward that goal.

Founder, President and CEO Michael Cherock started AE Works in the basement of his home in Pittsburgh in 2007.  With a goal to provide clients with a single source solution, the firm strategically added services, including architecture, interior design and mechanical engineering in-house.  In the last two years alone, AE Works has added Security Risk Management, Planning + Strategy and Project Services.

“The company’s focus has always been on leveraging the power of diversity and collaboration to add value throughout the life of a project.  We are focused on giving our clients a great experience and to us that means having a diverse range of services and experts to meet their needs from pre-project planning until after their project is complete,”  shares Cherock.

Marking its twelfth year, the company remains focused on innovation and growth, expanding services, including Owner’s Representative services and security-focused training related to building design.

“We are just getting started. I’m proud to say that we have an amazing team that can take us into the next decade. We are excited to grow our impact and transform the lives of people and organizations through stunningly beautiful, highly functional and safer spaces,” Cherock affirms.
