Serving the Northeastern United States for over 40 Years!

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, 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 Northeastern United States for more than four decades.

We're ready to serve you.

Featured Project
Gymnasium wing of the new Norwood High School, Norwood, MA

The new recently-opened $68.6 million Norwood High School is the first school facility built under Massachusetts' cost-saving “Model School Program" which incorporates successful design elements from existing schools into the design of new facilities.  Rather than “reinventing the wheel” for each new school project, the use of an existing “model” simplifies the design process, reduces the amount of time it takes to build a new facility by at least one year, and utilizes design dynamics that have already been deemed successful by students, teachers, and administrators.

Pare Corporation was the civil engineer for this new high school project.  In addition to site and drainage design, PARE also provided traffic and roadway engineering, geotechnical engineering, soil remediation, athletic field design, and construction-phase services.   PARE worked closely with Ai3 Architects throughout the project from planning to ribbon-cutting.

PARE Engineers Participate in National Engineers Week 

Recently, engineers from Pare Corporation volunteered at the Providence Children’s Museum alongside the ASCE Rhode Island Section Younger Member Group as part of National Engineers Week. The event, conducted annually by the ASCE Younger Member Group, introduces children to different aspects of civil engineering through a set of activity stations. Children visit each station and are awarded stickers toward their “junior engineer certificates.” Over 120 kids participated at this year’s event, held on February 22nd.

Mark Dowdell and Shane Driscoll, engineers in PARE's Environmental Division, presented water filtration to the children, demonstrating how sponges and coffee filters can remove solids from water, much like a more sophisticated water filtration system.  Eric Silva from PARE's Bridge Group ran the geotechnical station, demonstrating how settlement can differ in various types of soil, from sand to potting soil.

Other stations demonstrated building construction using marshmallows and toothpicks, bridge construction using cardboard, and how stormwater (or rain) runoff can create erosion problems around riverbanks.
