Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Woodard & Curran of Dedham and Andover is the second largest environmental engineering firm in Massachusetts, according to the latest list from the Boston Business Journal. The list is based on revenue from environmental projects in Massachusetts, including water and wastewater, environmental cleanup, stormwater, energy conservation, and other categories.
“In 2012, we saw 20% growth in Massachusetts and added seven jobs,” said Justin deMello, Woodard & Curran’s Municipal Market Segment Leader for Massachusetts. “We work hard to help our clients make smart decisions about how to use limited resources when it comes to infrastructure spending. Many communities in Massachusetts are shifting from a ‘fix it when it breaks’ mentality to a holistic, long-term planning approach. Infrastructure investment is no longer solely focused on protecting the environment; it’s also about improving services for residents and driving sustained economic growth. We are proud to be a trusted partner and thank our clients for the continued confidence in us.”
Among the ongoing projects Woodard & Curran is working on in Massachusetts is a significant flood hazard mitigation effort for the City of Salem. The project includes two new drainage systems, a new storm water pump station/storage facility, and upgrades to existing drainage infrastructure. 75% of the funding for the current phase of the project comes from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant that Woodard & Curran helped secure.
The firm is also working with the City of Lawrence on major improvements to its water infrastructure. The work includes improvements to the water treatment facility, water main repairs and upgrades, and upgrading water meters to remote-read meter technology.
