Staffing Growth Propels Tighe & Bond’s Worcester Office Expansion

WESTFIELD, MA – September 11, 2014 – This month, Tighe & Bond increased its Worcester office space at the Santander Bank Tower on Main Street by 50 percent to keep pace with its ongoing staffing growth at that location.  In addition to its established 13th floor location, the firm now also occupies newly renovated office space on the 6th floor of the Santander’s South Tower.  This expansion provides Tighe & Bond with the capacity to house up to 60 employees in its Worcester office.

Since 2012, Tighe & Bond’s Worcester office team has grown from 30 to almost 50 employees to better serve clients in the City of Worcester, as well as surrounding locations in eastern and central Massachusetts.  The firm’s Worcester office houses project managers, engineers, environmental scientists, GIS professionals, and other support staff.

Tighe & Bond established its first Worcester office in 1998, and has expanded and moved several times since then.  The firm regularly provides engineering services to the City of Worcester, and has worked on many notable projects in the area.  This includes extensive infrastructure improvements, demolition projects, environmental assessment/cleanup work, and sanitary sewer and related work.

Tighe & Bond currently is in the midst of two high profile projects for Worcester’s Department of Public Works.  One is the $20 million Route 20 sewer extension project to support new commercial and industrial growth along one of the last commercial corridors in Worcester.  Another project is the $10 million streetscape improvements to Franklin and Plantation Streets, associated with CSX’s freight terminal expansion, which continues Worcester’s downtown streetscape theme into adjacent neighborhoods.

The firm’s environmental site assessment and demolition team has also managed many projects for the City of Worcester to clean up contaminated sites and oversee building demolition.  The success of these projects has helped Worcester progress its redevelopment and revitalization efforts.  Key sites have included the Franklin Street Cold Storage Warehouse demolition, the cleanup/demolition of the industrial properties located within the South Worcester Industrial Park (SWIP), and ongoing environmental/demolition technical support for the downtown City Square project.   Tighe & Bond also recently worked on the demolition of the Crompton & Knowles Loom Works mill at 95 Grand Street.
