The Nobis Mission
To be a leading provider of high-value engineering services in support of:

Our employee-owners have a longstanding commitment to being active, supportive members in our communities. Being a good corporate citizen is an ongoing responsibility.

We believe this is the foundation for helping to create stronger communities and enhance the quality of life for our clients and employees.
Nobis designates up to five percent of our annual profits to charitable organizations with support focused on hunger relief, education, and development of youth, workforce development, health and social services, and affordable housing.
Our focus: To help build strong and vibrant communities.
A Green Company
Nobis is committed to reducing waste, promoting recycling and reusing.
As a progressive business and team of individuals, we believe it is our responsibility to use our planet’s resources wisely and ensure a healthy future for generations to come.
Our new tag line—Engineering a Sustainable Future—perfectly summarizes that daily commitment.
Nobis has been ranked 9th by the Zweig Letter Hot Firm List in 2012! The Hot Firm List recognizes architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting firms in the U.S. and Canada that have achieved the highest growth rates over the last three years. Climbing the ranks from 21st in 2011, Nobis continued its aggressive growth into 2012 by outperforming the economy and its competitors to establish itself as a leader in the industry.
Nobis was accepted into the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Aspiring Leaders Program in 2010. This newly implemented program challenges companies to actively recycle and reduce carbon emissions. In less than a year, through tracking our carpooling and video conferencing, we decreased our carbon emissions by more than 25,000 pounds. Additionally, our Concord office recycled 69% of our solid waste, surpassing our goal of 50% recycling.
Nobis' Lowell Office holds the LEED® Gold certification as established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
Nobis achieved LEED certification for energy, lighting, water, and material use—as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies—as part of a historic preservation of the former Davis Sargent Lumber Mill building located in Lowell, MA. This is the first LEED certified building in the City of Lowell, and one of the oldest buildings in the United States to be certified.
The Gold Level LEED Certification was based on a number of green design and construction features that include the following:
- Indoor environmental quality
- Energy and atmosphere
- Materials and resources
- Innovation and design process
- Water efficiency
Nobis fosters a culture of environmental consciousness. Every day, our commitment results in cost savings for the company and contributes to the goodwill and reputation in the environmental arena.
