In a wide-ranging conversation, Editor Jeff Kanige, discussed the firm’s work on the NJ Wind Port, the priorities for infrastructure and the importance of sustainability and resiliency. Petrocelli stated, “We are looking to incorporate sustainability principles in our projects.  We are literally taking the first steps.” Raichle added, "We think we are ahead of the game, as environmental engineers ... we certainly have a better opportunity than most to make a real difference.”

In response to the firm’s leadership status in disaster response, Petrocelli outlined how the company first became involved in the 2010 BP Oil Spill.  That experience propelled the company forward in the restoration and resiliency arenas. 

Petrocelli further elaborated, “In all honesty, Hurricane Sandy really launched our climate change resiliency work and Andy’s been a big part of that and that’s a big part of what we’re doing. Going forward, with all of these infrastructure projects, they all involve some sort of resiliency and we’re really proud of our work.”

Raichle spoke about current and future projects in both New York and New Jersey.  He stated, “Based on the 100-year rule, we are going to see stronger and more frequent storms.  It is our task to anticipate how best to mitigate the damage.”
