​B&T and OCC opens joint office in New York

​At Buckland & Taylor (B&T) and Ocean and Coastal Consultants’ (OCC) newly-opened joint office in New York, important steps for COWI's continued growth in the US are being taken.

Buckland & Taylor and Ocean and Coastal Consultants are both industry leaders in complex bridge, marine, waterfront and climate change engineering, and have an exceptionally strong record in local projects in New York City and New York State while being world leaders within their fields. Their new first joint office in New York will support several new and on-going projects.

Strong local presence

 
B&T is the designer of the main span of the new Tappan Zee Bridge connecting Westchester and Rockland counties across the Hudson River. Construction is already underway and is expected to take five years to complete.
 
OCC will continue work on Governors Island and the Brooklyn Naval Yard, providing waterfront engineering, evaluation, planning and design services. Furthermore, OCC played an important role in the rebuilding process after Hurricane Sandy. OCC was hired to check the city’s bridges for damages, as New York focuses on building a city that is more resilient to the effects of climate change.
 
"Opening our New York office is an important milestone as we support and pursue specialty bridge and marine engineering projects in New York State and across the eastern United States. We will continue to grow in our specialty areas of bridges and marine engineering and further provide cost-effective design solutions to major infrastructure owners and developers," says B&T and COWI North America President and CEO, Steven Hunt.
 
The B&T and OCC office in New York will have 30 highly skilled employees and is expected to grow in the coming years.
