clients to benefit from SPECIALIZED coastal engineering services
Westfield, Massachusetts – June 15, 2015 –Waterfront Engineers LLC – a New Hampshire based firm known for providing specialized engineering services for shoreline challenges and waterfront facilities – joined forces this week with Tighe & Bond, a New England leader in engineering and environmental services. Tighe & Bond acquired Waterfront Engineers LLC to offer its clients additional expertise and targeted solutions for complex and challenging coastal projects. Tighe & Bond’s Portsmouth, New Hampshire office will serve as the hub for these expanded services.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Waterfront Engineers to our team. Over the years, we have collaborated regularly with the firm’s chief engineer, Duncan Mellor, P.E., and know that his 30+ years of proven coastal engineering success will benefit our waterfront clients,” says Tighe & Bond’s President and CEO, David Pinsky. “As climate change has accelerated, and we’ve seen the devastating effects of coastal storm damage on communities, we are certain that our clients have an increased need for these specialized services. Whether it is to prevent or repair coastal damage, we can now fully support them with the waterfront engineering services they need,” he adds.
