TowerPinkster is looking beyond its Southwest Michigan home for business growth in 2013. Mikon, the company’s leader since 2005, wants to build on the design and engineering firm’s recent success in winning projects in the commercial sector.

“We will wind up with a very good year. This year, billings are up about 50 percent, which is approximately to the same point they were in 2010. We see strength in our core markets and a lot more activity for us in the commercial sector. I think this comes from some renewed confidence in the overall economy as it relates to Michigan.

"We expect any growth to be geographic beyond Michigan and in our commercial/industrial work. Historically low interest rates on financing are making projects more viable. I think the biggest trend (in the design and construction industry) is toward energy efficiency. Many people have done the low-hanging fruit kinds of things like changing out lighting fixtures. LEED has raised some awareness of operating cost of a building, but energy costs continue to rise.”
