California engineering firm P2S buys Notkin

P2S Inc. of Long Beach, California, yesterday said it acquired Notkin Mechanical Engineers, a Seattle-based mechanical design firm.

Terms of the deal were not released. P2S said it is effective June 1.

P2S said in its announcement that the purchase expands its engineering and commissioning presence into the Northwest and helps it grow in the federal, health care and higher education markets.

P2S president and CEO Kevin Peterson said, “Commitment to sustainability and innovation are core values for both companies, and Notkin adds to our capacity and geographic presence to provide MEPT engineering, commissioning, and construction management services in the Pacific Northwest.”

Notkin was founded in 1951 and is an approximately 40-person firm. Its project sectors are health care, higher education, government, cultural, infrastructure, ports and waterfront and aviation. It has worked in the Pacific Northwest, and from Alaska to California and Hawaii, according to the announcement.

The University of Washington, EvergreenHealth, Port of Seattle and Swedish Health have been among its clients. Its work has included expansion of the UW Medical Center, Concourse D Annex at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Seattle City Light Denny Substation and a blueprint for connecting all naval bases in the Pacific Northwest to a central building energy control system. Its earlier work included Benaroya Hall and the EMP Museum (now the Museum of Pop Culture).

Notkin CEO Larry Swartz said, “Joining P2S allows us to offer new and expanded services and to meet our growing client demands. Additionally, we will be able to provide more professional and career development opportunities for our staff and expand our federal opportunities in California.”

P2S was founded in 1991. It works in higher education, health care, ports/harbors, industrial, entertainment, commercial, laboratories, municipal and federal sectors. It has over 240 employees and offices in Long Beach, Irvine, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Jose.

Its recent work has included the Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex at Sacramento State University and the Kaiser Baldwin Park Medical Center infrastructure replacement.
