Who We Are:

Lerch Bates is the global multidisciplinary technical consultancy saving time and money for those designing, modernizing, investigating, or managing buildings. With 43+ offices around the globe and headquarters in Denver, Colo., we serve clients of all sizes with integrated services and specialties for performance optimization at any stage of a building’s lifecycle.

When you join our team, you don’t become an employee. You become an employee-owner. Lerch Bates is 100% employee owned via an employee stock ownership plan, or ESOP. That means you have a direct stake in this company. Oure employee-owners deliver responsibility, service and performance in everything they do. We call that the “ownership mindset.”

What We Value:

As an ESOP, our ownership culture is paired with four other corporate values to create the foundation of who we are.

  • Ownership | As employee-owners, we prioritize personal initiative, responsibility and accountability.
  • Optimism | We believe powerful thoughts produce powerful results.
  • Integrity | As advisors invested in creating a bond of trust, we build our business with honesty and unbiased principles.
  • Community | We strive for thoughtful consideration, intentional collaboration and meaningful relationships with those around us.
  • Respect | Shown through communication, consideration and appreciation for one another.

Who We Hire:

Lerch Bates seeks candidates that are passionate about their industry, their clients and delivering solutions for stakeholders on each project. We’re interested in people who want to grow their technical and business knowledge while driving customer reach in their local and national markets. Our goal is to identify and engage with future employee-owners that are committed to understanding complex challenges, and working together as a team to develop world class deliverables that have a positive impact on our clients’ businesses as well as our communities. If you think a career in a consulting with Lerch Bates might be for you, we appreciate the opportunity to learn more about you and discuss potential career opportunities with our organization.

Our History:

Lerch Bates was founded in 1947 as the first elevator consultancy in the nation. From there, we continued our innovative and entrepreneurial growth by establishing the first logistics consultancy in 1984 and the first façade access consultancy in 1985. In 1986, we cemented the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders into every employee, current and future, by becoming an ESOP. Fast forward to today, 75 years into the Lerch Bates legacy, which can be summarized simply. Every acquisition, expansion and addition to the Lerch Bates team is driven by one key element: meet the needs of our clients with projects and partnerships formed on trust, expertise, reliability and relationships.
