Burns & McDonnell Expands in New Jersey
WALLINGFORD, CT Burns & McDonnell is expanding its presence in New Jersey with a lease of newly renovated office space in Morristown, New Jersey. Forty-five employee-owners moved into third-floor offices in a historic five-story building at 10 N. Park Place. The employee count in Morristown is expected to double to approximately 90 in the next two years.
The employee-owners are relocating from an existing office in East Hanover, New Jersey, which will remain open. With the new office on the Morristown Green, Burns & McDonnell will have expanded capacity to serve clients in New Jersey and New York.
Bill Brown, Senior Director, Brokerage, with Cushman & Wakefield, and John DeHardt of Kessinger/Hunter & Co. facilitated the Morristown office transaction.
Burns & McDonnell will offer its full portfolio of engineering, construction, architectural, and environmental consulting services from the Morristown office. Burns & McDonnell serves a number of large aviation, military, energy, higher education, industrial, and governmental clients throughout the northeast.
"We're very excited to be moving to the historic Morristown Green because of its vibrant atmosphere and easy access to the New York metro," said Martin Durney, Aviation and Federal Practice Leader and Office Manager. "We've long had an established presence with multiple offices in New Jersey, and we're now in an even better position to serve our clients and grow as we expand our service offerings."
A surge in work for major air carriers in all of the large airports in New York, New Jersey and the Philadelphia area has been driving rapid growth of the New Jersey offices. Projects ranging from aircraft hangar facilities to multiphase, multibillion-dollar terminal replacement programs are among the largest projects now being executed. Projects for military and federal facilities continue to be strong in New Jersey, though capital investment programs among major air carriers are now driving significant workload.
"We now have nearly 100 employee-owners working in New Jersey at our new office and at project sites throughout the state," said
, President of the Burns & McDonnell northeast region. "That's a direct reflection of the confidence and trust our clients have placed in us, and it wouldn't surprise me if we had to expand our office in Morristown again very soon."
