Plant Architects Announces Partnership With Energy Architecture

Plant Architects—an enterprise of Robert Ober & Associates, LLC, (RO&A) based in San Antonio, Texas—and Energy Architecture— a leading industrial architectural and project management firm, based in Houston, Texas—are pleased to announce that, after several months of negotiations and development, the firms have entered into a strategic partnership agreement. The agreement has Plant Architects’ vast material handling design-build experience combining with Energy Architecture’s market-leading industrial design and project management capabilities.

The affiliation of these two individual companies brings an unparalleled industrial design-build team to the marketplace. “It is truly exciting to be able to offer our clients a complete package for project development, project management and commissioning of material handling systems that no longer requires extensive outside contract consultants for office, shop and facility enclosures,” says RO&A chairman/founder Robert Ober.

“Energy Architecture is proud to bring Plant Architects’ material handling expertise to the table in the plethora of opportunities presenting themselves across the spectrum of the industrial landscape. We no longer will need to go searching for material handling and storage expertise from subcontractors to service our clients’ needs,” notes Jay Ernst, partner, Energy Architecture.

Existing clients of each company will continue to deal with the representative of the respective company with whom they are presently engaged. Ongoing projects may receive additional project coordination from both firms under the partnership agreement.
