A Dayton, Ohio, construction firm will expand its geographic footprint with the opening of a new office in downtown Tampa, the company says in a Monday news release.

Heapy is a construction and engineering firm based in Ohio with regional headquarters in Indianapolis; Cincinnati; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Raleigh, North Carolina; and now Tampa. Heapy has more than 220 employees. The corporation, founded in 1945, plans, designs and commissions more than $2 billion annually in total construction costs.

"In the past five years, Heapy has experienced remarkable growth, reflected in a 27% increase in revenue last year," says CEO Mark Brumfield in a news release. "Our strategic investment in the Tampa community, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, will allow our firm to better serve existing clients and partners in the region."

Heapy says it has finished more than 70 projects in Florida in a decade. It decided to open a Tampa office "to provide a workspace dedicated to serving existing partners while creating opportunities to forge new connections within the region."

The firm's location will be at the Fifth Third Center, 201 E. Kennedy Blvd.

Already, the firm hired two Tampa colleagues to "spearhead growth" in the region: Cyndee Dornblaser, business development specialist, and John Callaghan, project manager. The firm says its plans to hire additional individuals from the area in the coming six months to support its growing portfolio in the region, but did not specify a number.

Heapy provides mechanical, electrical, plumbing and technology engineering design solutions, as well as design-build construction management and commissioning services across the health care, education, corporate, government, science and technology, and cultural markets.

The firm says it promotes sustainable and resilient design, "offering planning and design solutions to support renewable energy and decarbonization infrastructure investments."

To date, the company has overseen more than 450 LEED projects.
