Congratulations to BCW members Divney Tung Schwalbe (DTS) and Provident Design Engineering on the announcement this week that the two well-known Westchester planning and engineering firms have joined forces to provide enhanced services while maintaining their focus on Westchester, the Hudson Valley and adjacent Connecticut and New Jersey.

The two firms, who play instrumental roles in the land use and project design approval process for many of the most prominent development projects in the County and Region, have formed DTS Provident Design Engineering, LLP. The headquarters will be at 1 North Broadway in White Plains where DTS has been located.

“We have known each other and worked on the same project teams since the 1990’s,” said Andrew Tung, who along with Jerry Schwalbe, are the principals of the White Plains-based planning, civil engineering and landscape architectural firm which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.  “We take a very similar approach to our clients with a focus on service and bringing an in-depth knowledge of the municipalities and counties in which we work.  We are both locally founded and based, and we believe that makes a difference in today’s regulatory environment.”

Charles ‘Carlito’ Holt, Managing Partner of Provident, who is joined in the new entity with Partner Brian Dempsey, noted that the firms are “a good fit,” adding: “Our approaches are the same.  We’re committed to providing the kind of personal touch to the projects we are working on that comes when the principals are directly involved.  We’ve been part of our communities from the start and that’s our shared commitment to the future.” Provident is a traffic, transportation and civil engineering firm based in Hawthorne.
