LaBella Acquires ENGR3 to Expand Service Offering in Southeast

LaBella enters Georgia with addition of Alpharetta-based MEP team


LaBella Associates proudly announces the expansion of its mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering team in the Southeast through the acquisition of ENGR3, an Alpharetta, GA-based team of 13. All ENGR3 employees will be retained in the acquisition.

Founded in 2019, ENGR3’s portfolio of multi-family, mixed-use, and commercial development projects is a natural fit for LaBella’s continued growth in the building design sector. Both companies feel the new partnership will allow for continued growth to meet rising demand.

“LaBella’s success at building scale without compromising culture is exactly what ENGR3 wants to achieve,” ENGR3 Principal owner Trey Long said. “LaBella is a new home for our team that gives us room to grow, with supportive employee-ownership and in-house resources that will enhance our capabilities.”

For LaBella, the opportunity to accelerate the ENGR3 team’s success is a logical extension of its strategic plans for growth in the region. “It’s exciting to find the combination of quality and efficiency that the ENGR3 team offers,” LaBella President Jeff Roloson said. “Our ability to provide integrated, multi-disciplinary expertise is why clients continuously choose LaBella.” The firm has been committed to a growth strategy that brings service diversity to its entire footprint. In the Southeast, LaBella’s reach has extended from its Charlotte, NC hub to include Alabama, South Carolina, and Tennessee locations.

ENGR3 will continue to operate under its own brand throughout 2024, as integration plans solidify. Once the ENGR3 team is fully supported by LaBella’s firm resources and infrastructure, it will transition to the LaBella name. “We are excited to keep our clients and community updated as our team realizes these exciting new milestones,” Long said. “It will be a privilege to introduce LaBella’s values and capabilities to our trusted partners in Georgia and beyond.”
