The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) has relocated its headquarters from Clemson, South Carolina, to 200 Verdae Boulevard, Greenville, South Carolina. The organization’s headquarters move coincides with its 100th anniversary.
“NCEES is entering its second century of advancing licensure for engineers and surveyors, and this move will help us better fulfill our mission to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public,” explained NCEES Chief Executive Officer David Cox. “The new headquarters will provide a better position for the growth of the organization and allow NCEES to better support its member boards and the professions of engineering and surveying.”
NCEES is a national nonprofit organization made up of the engineering and surveying licensing boards from across the United States and its territories. It provides a range of services to support licensure and public protection, including developing the exams used to license professional engineers and surveyors.
The 70,600-square-foot building offers more space and flexibility to expand NCEES services—including Exam Development, Records, Credentials Evaluations, and Client Services—that, in turn, help its member boards carry out their missions.
NCEES brings hundreds of professional engineers and surveyors from across the country each year to its headquarters to assist with exam development. The move is expected to have an annual economic impact of $1 million for the Greenville tourism and hospitality industry, including local hotels, catering, restaurants, and transportation.
