Six years ago, Langan opened its doors in Westchester County to expand its presence in the Hudson Valley.
Today, the White Plains office supports projects throughout the State of New York and specifically Sullivan, Orange and the balance of the Hudson Valley. The company is committed to providing Langan’s full-suite of technical disciplines, including entitlement/SEQRA support, site/civil, geotechnical, environmental, and traffic engineering, as well as survey/3D laser scanning, natural resources permitting, and landscape architecture.
The office leadership has deep roots to the region. Associate Chuck Utschig has practiced engineering in the Hudson Valley for more than 30 years. Joined by Senior Associate, Mike Finan, and Sullivan County native, Pat Ripa, the team is actively communicating the value-added benefits of Langan to existing and new clients throughout the Hudson Valley.
As a result, Langan continues to be very active in the market, providing engineering design services to a broad range of clients, including utility companies, renewable energy companies, institutional clients, and private real estate developers in the industrial, residential and commercial markets.
“Being a resident of Rock Hill for the better part of my life, and a graduate of Monticello High School, I look forward to helping the area develop to its full potential during the current resurgence of the Catskills,” Pat Ripa said.
Locally, Langan has been involved in many high-profile projects and hopes to continue being one of the “go-to” consultants in the Hudson Valley. The firm prepared the design and provided construction services for the conversion of Chalet Road to “Resorts World Drive.” This improved roadway connects The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark and Resorts World Catskills.
At The Eldred Preserve in the Town of Highland, Langan obtained site plan approval from the town and permits from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for the onsite wastewater treatment plant. Langan is also providing construction support services and working closely with the contractor during construction.
Langan has multiple industrial/warehouse, residential, and resort projects in progress. Under the direction of Finan, the firm also has active community solar projects within the Hudson Valley.
“We are eager to support grassroots development in Sullivan County,” said Finan. “We see tremendous potential for growth in the region sparked by the casino and waterpark, as well as the potential [third lane] expansion of Route 17. This is an exciting time for Sullivan County and we want to play a key role in that growth.”
The firm is a member of the 17- Forward-86 Coalition, supporting the expansion of Route 17 aimed at enhancing commuter safety, reducing environmental impacts, and increasing the quality of life for residents in the region.
Langan looks forward to continuing to grow its presence in the County and supports the ongoing development in the region.
