CHA Consulting


Business Description

CHA Consulting is a leading provider of engineering services with over 1,000 people and over 40 offices located primarily on the East Coast and in the Mid-West. The Company serves a diverse range of end markets including transportation, utilities, rail, energy, aviation, environmental, education, industrial, health care, and municipalities.

Transaction Overview

Long Point Capital invested in CHA through a leveraged recapitalization structure, where the owners of the Company monetized the majority of the illiquid value contained in their business, while continuing to retain a significant ownership interest in CHA and maintaining operational control along with the existing management team.


Following Long Point Capital’s investment, CHA pursued an active acquisition-driven growth strategy, acquiring six engineering firms to expand its geographic footprint and industry capabilities. The Company also expanded its management team and transitioned to a new CEO. Long Point Capital successfully sold CHA to a private equity firm in 2018.
