Loring Consulting Engineers
Celebrating 60 years

For this well-respected national mechanical and electrical engineering firm, RFI created a multi-faceted 60th anniversary program to showcase its accomplishments and establish a future direction.

We continue to work with Loring to build off the anniversary effort, with ongoing email announcements and a new, comprehensive qualifications package.

Lilker Associates Consulting Engineers
Reinvigorating a firm, launching a brand

When RFI began working with this accomplished engineering firm specializing in commercial buildings systems, it had an outstanding reputation among its clients but little presence in the larger market. RFI created a branding system for the firm using a new sophisticated new logo, developed a versatile tagline, launched a modern website, initiated a PR campaign, and developed a proposal and project page system that Lilker could implement in house. Now a 100+ member firm with two subsidiaries and multiple divisions, RFI continues to manage all aspects of Lilker’s marketing communications program


The LiRo Group
is in the details

To celebrate its new location in downtown Manhattan, RFI helped plan and implement an elegant open house event for over 200 people, with specialty cocktails and views overlooking the Hudson River. RFI selected and negotiated with the caterer and prepared a checklist for staff in house to ensure a perfect run of event.

Advertising that’s timeless

Dagher Engineering
A fitting mark

Innovative, always on the cutting edge and a leader in green building design, this MEP engineering firm needed a new logo that was sleek, sophisticated and efficient in design. It needed to suggest modernity and a sense of balance that illustrated the firm’s philosophy. RFI continues to work with Dagher Engineering on publicity and marketing initiatives.


L K Comstock
Bidding to win

Competing in a joint venture on a half-billion dollar project to construct a portion of NYCT’s Second Avenue Subway, one of the largest electrical contractors in the U.S. needed to deliver a well written, highly focused proposal with a succinct, convincing executive summary. RFI developed text and created a proposal system, including a new format for resumes, project descriptions, tables, and charts that could be reused and adapted for future proposals. The investment paid off for the company–the joint venture won the project.
