We are pleased to announce that the firm is growing with the opening of our third office. Strategically located in Holyoke, MA to serve the greater Pioneer Valley and the central and western areas of Massachusetts and Connecticut, our new office is in the Whitney Place Business Center. Whitney Place provides easy access to the Massachusetts Turnpike (Route 90) and Interstate 91, as well as accessibility to biking and local bus routes. From this location, we will be able to quickly respond to the many growing needs of clients and communities throughout the area.

We will be providing a full range of engineering and consulting services from the Holyoke Office. Our engineers are currently working on a variety of public- and private-sector projects in the area, including the Belchertown State School Carriage Grove Redevelopment, the Singing Bridge Redevelopment Project in Chicopee, traffic light signalization and roadway improvements for Brightwood/Lincoln School in Springfield, and traffic engineering design for the Fort River Elementary School in Amherst. The office will also allow us to expand several growing practice areas including our water and wastewater engineering, highway and bridge engineering, bike paths and recreational ball fields, and geotechnical and dam services.

Vice President David Loring, who has managed and designed engineering projects in the region for over 30 years, will serve as the Office Manager. David currently serves as the Treasurer for the Massachusetts Tri-County Highway Superintendents’ Association and is on the Western New England University’s College of Engineering Industry Advisory Council. “I have strong ties to the Pioneer Valley, so I look forward to introducing my colleagues to this picturesque region and getting them involved in the surrounding communities. We are also excited to help our local clients with their planning, engineering, permitting, and construction administration needs from our Whitney Place office.”

CEO John Shevlin, who grew up in Holyoke and maintains strong ties to the region, states, “This is one of several strategic initiatives for the firm to build internal leadership opportunities, add new services, and expand our geographic footprint. As with our Lincoln and Foxboro offices, we will provide interdisciplinary project management from this location.”

Pare’s newest office is located at 14 Bobala Road, Suite 2B, Holyoke, MA, 01040 and can be reached at 413-507-3448.
