Bluestone Energy Services, which is based in Massachusetts, has opened a new office base in Manhattan, New York, in an effort to grow its profile and enhance its business in the Big Apple.
The company operates as a division of OpTerra Energy, providing engineering and project management solutions targeted primarily at finding ways to improve energy efficiency among US corporations. Much of its work involves retrofitting industrial buildings and retail spaces to enhance their sustainability credentials in a variety of ways.
Data centre energy management expert Jeff Hecht has been drafted in to lead developments at Bluestone’s new Manhattan offices, which are at 1501 Broadway in the heart of New York City.
“Jeff brings a wealth of experience and focus to Bluestone energy’s data center airflow management solutions,” explained Adam Fairbanks, Bluestone Energy’s vice president of engineering and business development. “Jeff’s sales and business development background, coupled with his familiarity with the region make him well-suited for this position and will enable us to build on the success we have already seen in the area.”
Along with news of its new offices in Manhattan, Bluestone also recently announced plans to expand its existing presence at office space in Chicago. The company is hoping to see some notable growth within its mid-west business units in the coming months as a result of the expansion.
Bluestone’s parent company the OpTerra Energy Group describes itself as being the “leading provider of comprehensive turnkey energy-efficiently and onsite-generation solutions to public and private sector customers across the United States”.
In other Manhattan office space news, the US subsidiary of the publishing giant Bloomsbury announced back in October that it is to relocate its New York-based staff to a set of newly revamped offices at 1385 Broadway, not far at all from where Bluestone Energy has now set up shop.
