What is Unesco Powered by SitelogIQ?
Unesco was formed in May 2014. We grew to over 65 industry professionals who collectively have over 1,300 years of experience with an average tenure of 25+ years. Prior to Unesco’s incorporation, most of Unesco’s principals and employees worked for Energy Services Group, LLC. In 2008, Honeywell International acquired Energy Services Group with the intent of duplicating Energy Services Group’s processes and best practices across Honeywell’s North American Market.
By 2014, the founders of Unesco identified a growing need for a privately-owned, Midwest-based company whose primary focus would be helping K-12 clients meet both short and long-term facility management planning goals. Subsequently, Unesco was founded and in four short years grew to exceed the size of Energy Services Group. We are currently responsible for $100 million of construction annually. This was carried out by Unesco’s founders’ connection to the industry, and more importantly, to the regional markets served which resulted in hand-picking the best and brightest personnel from which to build the company. The response in the industry to the formation of Unesco and our specialized treatment of our clients and employees has resulted in exponential growth.
Partnership with Oaktree Capital – SitelogIQ
This growth and greater market demand for diverse financial options created challenges of its own. Unesco’s current work includes Guaranteed Energy Services Agreements (Performance Contracts) and Professional Services Agreements. After evaluating a number of options, Unesco elected to take on a strategic equity partner, Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK) who manages over $121 billion in assets. Unesco also became a leader in a new corporation with the depth of talent, experience and financial resources to deliver new asset options to its existing and new clientele, including Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS), Public-Private-Partnerships (P3), Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) and Complete Privatization. As a result, Unesco is now part of a much larger corporation represented by eight portfolio companies in the Energy Services industry that are strategically located throughout North America. The corporate makeup includes 32 offices, 700 employees, over $400 million in annual construction revenue, and 50 years of construction history represented by over $5 billion in infrastructure projects. This new financial position will provide the financial stability to support the local Unesco team in its ability to develop, finance, implement and operate any project size in the markets it serves.
