VHB looks to help Sullivan County grow

Last updated on November 14th, 2018

VHB partners with clients to improve mobility, enhance communities and economic vitality, and balance development and infrastructure needs with environmental stewardship. With offices in 30 locations along the East Coast, VHB is available to both business and government clients at a moment’s notice.

That’s why they recently joined the Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development to find out what is happening in one of the busiest counties in the Hudson Valley.

“There’s a new casino that opened and that certainly spawned some new development,” VHB Managing Director Mike Tucker, of the Albany office, said. “We are starting to get involved in Sullivan County because we have the experience necessary to help it grow.”

Whether designing a new office complex, facilitating approvals for a new building project or working with local governments to balance developmental and infrastructure needs with environmental stewardship, VHB’s 1,350 employees have the experience.

VHB’s engineers, scientists, planners and designers partner with their clients in a myriad of projects, ranging from transportation to healthcare, industrial to energy, commercial to governmental.

“We have all the services inhouse to get your project done,” Managing Director Patrick O’Leary, PE, of the White Plains office, said. “We have done a lot of multi-housing projects, low income housing as well as small box retail.”

O’Leary believes that experience, along with building strong personal client relationships, will bode well for VHB’s future success in Sullivan County.

“We help developers get projects done,” Tucker said. “We see population growth coming to the area and want to be part of that success story.”
