There are 11.6 million women-owned businesses in the United States providing jobs and stimulating the economy. Of those business owners, Tina Yagla, a decorated military veteran and owner of Yagla Engineering Services, Inc (YES), is doing her part.

YES is a Department of Veteran Affairs certified veteran-owned small business, but don’t let the word “small” mislead you. YES is a full service MEP engineering and consulting firm that specializes in the mechanical (HVAC), electrical and plumbing engineering for new construction, renovations and additions, as well as interior tenant build-outs.

Tina is a dedicated professional with 24 years of experience in MEP engineering. She is LEED Certified, a fierce advocate for the growth and sustainability of her community, and builds  honest and long-term relationships with her clients. Her three years in the Air Force and her engineering degree from the Milwaukee School of Engineering forged the discipline and focus needed to grow a successful business. 

Tina’s team at YES has broad experience across diverse projects. A few of YES’s notable projects include a 6-story luxury apartment complex loaded with amenities in downtown Wheaton, IL, the Treehouse Humane Society Feline Shelter with an in-house veterinary clinic and Chicago’s first cat cafe, and a 17,000 sf. 3-level restaurant in Chicago.

YES understands that the environment and its preservation is just as important as the design esthetic and engineering of a building. They are committed to designing systems with sustainability and LEED certification in mind. Since the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in a building can consume large amounts of energy, it is vital to ensure all systems selected for a building can provide energy savings measures such as: domestic water use reduction, day lighting and light harvesting, and CFC Reduction in HVAC&R Equipment.

Illinois isn’t the only state to benefit from the excellence and professionalism of YES. Tina is licensed in 30 states spanning coast to coast from New York to California. Yagla Engineering Services, Inc is proud to provide MEP systems that work within budget and have the interest of the client in mind.
