The firm specializes in civil engineering but has diverse expertise in community planning and management, landscape architecture, environmental compliance, and sustainability. They have eight offices in the mid-Atlantic region and have completed projects throughout the Lehigh Valley for many years. Current projects include flood mitigation design at Easton Avenue and Santee Road in Bethlehem Township, flood mitigation studies for Palmer Township and Forks Township, improvements to the Nazareth Borough Municipal Authority Wastewater Treatment Plant, and a master plan for the Luthercrest Continuing Care Retirement Community.

The Lehigh Valley office will be a base of operations to service clients in Northampton, Lehigh, Berks, Carbon, Monroe, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Wyoming, Pike, Wayne and Susquehanna Counties. “A local presence is key to the way we do business at HRG,” the company’s chief executive officer Jason Fralick says. “We don’t just deliver projects: We are actively involved in local organizations and invest heavily in an area through sponsorships and charitable giving. This office demonstrates our commitment to be a part of the Lehigh Valley community and will create greater opportunities for collaboration between our staff and our clients.”
The Lehigh Valley office is managed in the interim by Andrew Kenworthy, HRG’s director of facilities and business expansion, until an assistant vice president is appointed to manage the office long-term.
