PS&S is expanding...again. Our Wall office is benefitting from the addition of Bill Salmon who is tasked with integrating his civil land development team with our outstanding environmental and utility services. Monmouth and Ocean counties present enormous opportunities for growth and with Bill as a new Senior Director of Land Development we have the right man in place. Bill joined our company in April and brings 28 years of experience for our current and future clients.

Further south in Cherry Hill, we are thrilled to be adding three architects to our existing team.

Charles Clauser, Harry Wright and Steven Sgro are new to PS&S, but with a combined 88 years of experience in the architecture industry, they are certainly not new to the profession, or to Cherry Hill. We are especially excited to capitalize on their collective experience in the Healthcare Sector which is clearly one of the fastest growing industries in our region.

2015 is turning into a year of transition at PS&S from our expansion throughout New Jersey to our executive changes as detailed in NJBIZ. We know many of you are enjoying time at the shore this summer, and we are proud to be part of the rebuilding process in the three years since Superstorm Sandy. PS&S has been involved in projects that have helped restore our shore communities, whether you’re driving down Route 35 or walking the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. In October, we will reflect on the progress we have made and how building in flood-prone areas has changed forever.

FOCUS ON: Wall Office Growth


With a name like Salmon, where else would you work but near the water? New Jersey-native Bill Salmon joined the PS&S Wall Office in April as a Senior Director of Land Development to spearhead the enhanced presence for civil engineering and land development in the Monmouth and Ocean county regions.

Bill’s familiarity with the Garden state is synonymous with many of his colleagues.

He grew up in Edison and currently resides in the neighboring town of Metuchen, where he volunteers with Habitat for Humanity and Special Olympics, and also serves as a Deacon at the First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen. Bill earned his degree in civil engineering at Youngstown State University in Ohio.

In his career, Bill has developed expertise in project management, all aspects of engineering design and regulatory permitting with NJDEP, NJDOT, and county and municipal organizations and has provided expert testimony with municipal and zoning boards.

“Land development is important throughout the state, but notably, there is a tremendous market in the Monmouth/Ocean region that we [PS&S] need to fulfill with local flavor,” Bill said. “I know the first priority of this new chapter of my career is getting the civil and land development division up and running in Wall, and I’m excited to make it a success.”

Bill is off to a fast start. His team already has two new projects in the pipeline in Rumson and in Eatontown – both in the planning phase.

Evolving opportunity will be the key. In terms of population, Monmouth County ranks as the 5th largest in the state. Ocean County has been one of the fastest growing areas of the state since the 1990s. And despite the damage the region suffered from Superstorm Sandy, it is well on its way to recuperating.

“The region’s growth isn’t slowing down,” Bill explained. “There’s an attractive advantage to being close to the shore yet also still in the New York metropolitan area – the best of both worlds. Currently, the top two priorities are bringing in new clients and developing a robust on-site support team.”

The Wall office has already seen growth with its existing expertise in utility/infrastructure and environmental services, so integrating civil and land development services comes at an opportune time for the firm. The goal is to double in size over the next five years.

“Having the small firm feel with the large firm support is special,” Bill added. “Having all disciplines readily available at your disposal is an exciting differentiator in the architecture and engineering industry.”

PS&S is continuing its expansion in Southern New Jersey with the addition of three architects, formally of Moorestown-based Costanza Spector Clauser Architects (CSCA). CSCA specialized in providing architectural and interior design, project planning and graphics and rendering services with a concentration in the Healthcare Sector.

Charles Clauser will be a Senior Director of Architecture, Harry Wright and Stephen Sgro will both be Senior Architects, all based out of the Cherry Hill office.

The architectural expertise of Charles, Harry and Stephen will be a great addition to PS&S’s fully integrated offerings and is a clear recognition of the importance of the healthcare industry, not only in New Jersey, but also throughout the entire region.

“This is an exciting time for us,” said Mr. Clauser. “Combining our experience with the existing expertise at PS&S is going to amplify the architecture side of the business – and coupling that with the technical engineering and design excellence is going to create tremendous opportunities.”

After attending Spring Garden College, Mr. Clauser served in the Navy on an aircraft carrier. Following his discharge, he attended Drexel University’s Evening School of Architecture and became a registered architect in 1977. As a partner and President of CSCA, Mr. Clauser was responsible for the daily operations including business development and project scheduling.

Mr. Wright graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Temple University in 1989 and became a registered architect in 2003. He is a former President of the West Jersey section of the American Institute of Architects. Mr. Wright served as Vice President of Studio Management at CSCA and was responsible for managing CAD production standards and protocols, production quality control, project management and software integration.

Mr. Sgro studied at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, and obtained his Bachelor of Architecture from Temple University in 1991. He has been a registered architect since 1996 and a LEED accredited professional since 2009. Mr. Sgro was Vice President of Design Management at CSCA. He was responsible for design quality control, project management, firm IT, and business development including marketing, web presence and graphics. With his LEED certification, Steve guided the firm’s sustainability responsibilities as well.

“These three bring a combined 88 years of experience in the architecture industry,” said Todd Heacock, Executive Vice President of the Building Group for PS&S. “Their in-depth knowledge and astute experience in the business is going to solidify our architecture practice and is the impetus for our big plans in Cherry Hill. We are doubling our office space there which will allow us to serve the growing demand of the region. In addition to the boost in our architecture business, we are also growing our land practice group to include expanded services in our environmental, civil and survey offerings.”
