Pare Corporation - Celebrating 50 Years


Pare Corporation continues to adapt our operations in response to the disruptions caused by COVID-19.  As an “essential business” providing engineering support to public infrastructure and facilities, we have put numerous measures in place based on the most current recommendations from leading health authorities and government officials.  All Pare staff are fully employed - most working remotely using secure systems to ensure confidentiality and data integrity.  Project managers are available by mobile phone, e-mail, messaging and videoconferencing. Field staff are in close communication with office staff, and are following physical distancing protocols at job sites.  I am proud of the way Pare employees are actively supporting municipalities, state agencies and businesses as they scramble to adjust to the changing needs of their constituents. Be assured that Pare will continue to serve clients and communities with expertise and integrity in spite of these uncertain times.

From all of us at Pare Corporation, best wishes for your health and safety.

Larry Riggs, President and CEO


Welcome to Pare Corporation.

As a multidisciplinary firm of engineers, planners, environmental and wetland scientists, GIS specialists, and regulatory permitting specialists, our clients depend on us to help them work through the anxieties of the design and permitting process while sharing their sense of urgency.

In addition to the traditional engineering and planning projects you would expect to find as you look through these pages (roads, bridges, site design, infrastructure), you will find projects and experience featuring sustainable and low-impact development, resiliency and smart growth planning, and LEED documentation for “Green” building certification.

Pare has been serving the needs of public and private clients throughout New England and the Eastern United States for five decades.

We're ready to serve you.

Featured Project
Municipal Resilience & Climate Adaptation Planning

Pare is combining our public outreach & visioning capabilities with our passion for resilient design in order to better support communities in their municipal resilience planning process.  Our vast experience with municipal engineering projects gives us a strong foundation to help guide communities through the consensus-building process in order to complete risk assessments, conduct feasibility studies, and develop detailed Community Resilience & Climate Action Plans.  This photo is from a recent community stakeholder charrette with the Town of Southborough that we facilitated for the Massachusetts MVP program using visual displays, GIS mapping, and statistical data.  Click here to download additional information on Pare’s Climate Adaptation Planning.

John Shevlin Receives the Providence Engineering Society’s 2020 Humanitarian Award

John Shevlin, Senior Vice President and Transportation Division Manager, was honored by the Providence Engineering Society with the 2020 Humanitarian Award.  This achievement recognizes his involvement in the Cumberland, RI community since moving there in 1994 and the numerous leadership roles he has taken in professional engineering organizations.  In both sectors, a focus area for him has been the creation of new fundraising events to provide scholarship opportunities for students pursuing higher education.  John has valued the importance of philanthropy throughout his 30-year career at Pare Corporation, and has served as a role model for others to do the same.
