BATON ROUGE, LA (PRWEB) May 30, 2017
Abt Associates has opened a new office in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, expanding its presence and offerings in the Gulf Coast region. The new office will enable Abt to support clients along the Gulf of Mexico.
“We have worked closely with states and federal partners on Gulf restoration efforts, from assessing habitat and ecosystem impacts on marine life to assisting states in developing their restoration strategies for the greatest success,” said Kathleen Flanagan, president and CEO of Abt. “This new office reflects that growth and the recognition that Abt is a trusted restoration partner.”
With 12 other corporate offices around the world, the Baton Rouge location enables Abt’s environmental and natural resources experts to further assist clients in their restoration efforts in the region. Principal Associate Karim Belhadjali, who recently joined Abt from the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, manages the Baton Rouge office. The office is located in the heart of Baton Rouge’s business district at One American Place, 301 N. Main Street, Ste. 2200.
Abt has over 30 years’ experience addressing the most complex environmental challenges and offers clients customized restoration solutions that are responsive, data-driven, and connect science to decision-making. Most recently, Abt provided scientific and strategic support through every phase of the Gulf of Mexico restoration planning process.
