With a newly expanded footprint in New Jersey, executives with Partner Engineering & Science are setting their sights on how to keep their pipeline filled.

Ralph J. Orlando, the firm's division president, said the development business is not quite as robust as it was nearly a decade ago but still has rebounded from the recession. That means opportunities for Partner, especially since many of the former Birdsall Services Group engineers who joined the firm have records and knowledge of project sites around the state.

And with the focus now on redevelopment and repositioning land, Orlando said a key driver of business will be Partner's core expertise: environmental due diligence.

“People need to deal with that every day,” he said. “And it's becoming more and more important in development in New Jersey, because the development parcels are becoming remediated sites.”

Partner, a Torrance, Calif., firm, recently added more than 70 professionals to its ranks in the Garden State after the acquisition of most of Birdsall's assets this summer. Frank S. Romeo. Jr., Partner's director of East Coast operations, said the integration of both firms now allows it to offer a comprehensive approach to clients in New Jersey and across the country.

“With any redevelopment that's going on, we have the ability to take those jobs from the very beginning, from the financing phase through the design phase to completion,” Romeo said.
