Multidiscipline civil engineering consulting and design firm Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB) says its New York City office is experiencing “unprecedented growth,” nearly doubling in size since the start of 2022 and welcoming several highly regarded professionals across its markets.
This expansion, VHB says, has allowed the New York City office to “diversify its portfolio significantly in transit, rail and bridge projects, as well as introduce new service lines, including signal systems, structural engineering, traction power, and vertical transportation.”
“VHB is well-positioned to support our clients on any project, from infrastructure upgrades to the repurposing assets into housing and life science facilities,” said NYC Managing Director Joe Pizzurro, who joined the firm this past June. “We’re eager to guide the city in reexamining its foundation and shaping a forward-looking vision to secure the city’s enduring status as a central hub for generations to come.”
In the last year, VHB says its New York City office has played a significant role in several transformative projects, including the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Program Management & Design project, the Station Plaza project in collaboration with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), and private development projects, such as Arverne East and the Alafia project. In addition, VHB is partnering with NYU Langone Health to expand its Brooklyn Endoscopy & Ambulatory Surgery Center, marking the first design-build hospital project in New York.
“VHB NYC is deeply committed to staying at the forefront of industry innovation,” the company stated in a release. “From advancing sustainability and energy evolution to harnessing the power of cutting-edge technology, the team is not just adapting to change, but actively shaping the future of urban development.”
As VHB evolves with the city, the company says it will “prioritize projects that help solve pressing issues across public and private sectors—including addressing the housing crisis, climate issues, and the critical need for mobility improvements—while leveraging its integrated approach to take on more program management and final design work.”
“We are prioritizing sustainable growth as the foundation of our vision. As we look to the future, our mission is focused on nurturing a city that’s both vibrant and resilient. VHB stands ready to be the city’s partner, addressing its evolving needs, and forging a path toward a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow,” Pizzurro added.
