TranSystems Corp., brings on BCE Engineers, Inc., a full-service mechanical, electrical and fire protection engineering consulting firm based in Fife, Washington, just outside of Tacoma.


“The BCE and TranSystems combination boosts the collective firms’ architecture and buildings systems services while adding a geographic presence in the Pacific Northwest,” said TranSystems CEO, Richard Morsches.

Established in 1986, BCE provides professional design services on design-build, design-bid-build, surveys, studies, and specialized task order projects for a wide variety of markets, including military, waterfront, education, medical, commercial, housing/mix-use, and maintenance/industrial.

“We’re excited to welcome BCE to TranSystems, marking a significant expansion in our capabilities in the Pacific Northwest and nationwide” said TranSystems Senior Vice President and Federal Market Sector Leader, Kevin Chafin. “Their addition not only strengthens our geographic reach but also elevates our expertise in mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection practices. This strategic alliance promises to amplify our impact to our clients, fostering innovation and excellence as we chart new horizons together.”

BCE’s 75-person team will join the TranSystems national 1,800-person workforce. Recently joining TranSystems was Baltimore-based WBCM. TranSystems is ranked #65 on the ENR Top 500 Design Firms list.

“After so many years of working closely together, we are excited to be joining the TranSystems team and are looking forward to seeing what the future holds,” said BCE Principal Ben Hedin. “We will continue to uphold the strong local presence we’ve built over decades while expanding our reach on a national scale.”
