NEW YORK — ABM, a leading provider of integrated facility solutions, announced that ABM Building Services, a business unit of ABM Building & Energy Solutions, has acquired the operations of Calvert-Jones, a leading mechanical contractor in the Washington, D.C., area.

Calvert-Jones specializes in HVAC, plumbing, electrical, automated controls, and energy efficiency services to the greater Washington, D.C.; Virginia; and Maryland commercial markets.
