As valued clients, vendors, colleagues, and friends you are already familiar with the Halker name as an established Engineering Consulting firm for energy, industrial and power generation projects. We are excited to announce our continued growth, added services, and market diversity. We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to our brand architecture. Halker’s family of brands is approximately 75 employees strong and growing with offices in Denver (HQ), Dallas and Billings, and Professional Engineering licenses in 30 states.
Halker Consulting, established in 2006, has over 15 years of experience providing our clients with the highest level of service in upstream and midstream engineering and design, retrofits, electrical utility transmission and distribution and automating engineered systems. Our culture of safety is evident in all our designs and in the field during our management and support of construction, commissioning, and operations.
Halker’s engineers make our innovative designs a reality. With a focus on safety and operational efficiency, our experienced staff of multi-disciplined engineers apply the specifications, standards, compliance, and operational parameters to the strategic approaches that our designers create for each project. The result is a safe and effective real-world implementation of innovative and fit-for-purpose design, based on business and production objectives.
Halker Smart Solutions was established in 2020 as a natural progression of the innovative solutions Halker Consulting pioneered in the upstream oil and gas space. With a focus on integrated hardware and software development, HSS is your go to “digital enablement” partner delivering not only innovative products, but also advanced software integration projects. Currently HSS offers a disruptive multi-phase measurement solution, HalkEye, that focuses on providing an easily deployed and maintained system for immediate production optimization insights. Additionally, through our unique software partnerships we offer custom operational digital twin solutions that provide unique rule based and advanced machine learning insight and control. Finally, capitalizing on our strong software and automation knowledge we provide both turn-key and custom crypto-mining facilities for use in locations harnessing unused or lost power sources.
Cascade Environmental, founded in 1995, provides environmental engineering and regulatory consulting services for industrial and commercial clients, with considerable experience in the construction, transportation, waste management and energy sectors. In tandem with Halker’s facility designs, Cascade provides Spill Prevention Control and Counter (SPCC) Plans and permitting, waste management, and regulatory compliance consultation. Cascade conducts site characterizations and environmental assessments to satisfy asset screening and due diligence objectives. With experience in remedial investigation and design, Cascade can perform feasibility studies, provide remedial oversight, and conduct surface & subsurface investigations. Additionally, Cascade is equipped to assist with the evolving landscape of emissions monitoring, reporting, and lead detection and repair (LDAR).
Cascade also offers environmental health and safety (EHS) oversight services for CDOT and municipally owned transportation projects in Colorado. These projects include services such as providing Material Management Plans (MMP), Health and Safety Plans (HASP), Recognized Asbestos Contaminated Soil (RACS) management oversight, pre-demolition bridge inspections, Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) wildlife biologist surveys, waste profiling and manifesting, material sampling and delivery, uranium mill tailing management oversight, and lead based paint management procedures. Cascade’s goal has been to provide clients with personalized, value-added services which contributes to their success by ensuring compliance with applicable regulations, minimizing liability, and reducing operating costs.
PRE, Inc, founded in 2005, quickly became a go-to engineering firm for utilities, municipalities, developers, and many other clients. PRE’s projects range from large, multi-million-dollar substation projects to smaller industry-changing projects that require innovative solutions. Between Halker and PRE, our diverse team member experience in renewable energy projects includes utility and farm-scale solar photovoltaic (PV), concentrated and tracking PV systems, wind generation, fuel cells, remote off-grid power generation, geothermal, hydroelectric power generation, battery and flywheel power, and energy performance optimization. To expand our renewables offerings, our team is staying current on industry trends in the area of green hydrogen applications and generation.
As the newest strategic partnership in our family of brands, we believe there are great synergies between PRE’s power engineering design team and Halker’s multi-discipline industrial process team. These synergies will become even more apparent as we work to ensure that the future of energy is both affordable and sustainable.
