We evolved from decades of buying and selling companies for our own roll ups.
Our experiences, both positive and negative, have shaped us into who we are today. We have encountered a variety of situations and obstacles, and learned valuable lessons from each one.

This is a group of award winning entrepreneurs who stumbled into this niche of matching AEC buyers and sellers.
In 1982, the founder launched a small startup environmental services firm with a $20,000 loan in the back room of an architect's office, and then grew it to be the largest environmental engineering firm in the country by the end of that decade. Hall Kimbrell drove the early rules and practices of the newly emerging environmental services industry. It garnered the Inc. #9 award for growth, and had over 1100 employees, 30 facilities and the largest market share in that young new industry. It grew both organically and through acquisition of small niche architecture, engineering and environmental firms. In 1988, the founder and president was honored by President Reagan as US Entrepreneur of the Year at a White House Rose Garden ceremony.
During one of their roll ups in 2016, they were asked to take on the first paying “sell side” client, a Florida based civil engineering firm who was not interested in the roll up, but did want to sell her company to a qualified buyer. They agreed and that was the birth of The Enginuity Group.
Having been primarily on the "buy side" throughout their careers, they could observe and critique how brokers and intermediaries were approaching the sell side. It appeared that, as with many lightly regulated industries, each broker had a unique non-standardized approach...some good......some not so great. Over the years, they observed several emerging and mature industries that didn't seem to have a standardized format for providing these services. So, when they decided to provide buy and sell side services to clients rather than only for their own roll ups, they developed what is now one of the most comprehensive step-by-step processes, both sell side and buy side, in the industry, leaving nothing out.
Today, the Enginuity Group provides professional turnkey buy side and sell side packages to its architecture, engineering, environmental, construction and related clients based on standardized methodologies and processes. This provides enhanced efficiency and a complete buy or sell side service from initial company review through post-closing transition.
