AKRF Opens Third Philly Area Office

by Steve Lubetkin,
AKRF, an environmental, planning and engineering firm, has opened a Philadelphia office at One Washington Square, near Independence Hall in Center City. The Center City office will cement Philadelphia as a major hub for AKRF, which has offices throughout the Northeast, from New York’s Hudson Valley to the Baltimore/DC area.

Led by Shandor Szalay – senior vice president at AKRF and director of the firm’s water resource practice – the firm’s three Philadelphia area offices provide public and private sector clients with a wide range of services, including stream restoration work; environmental permitting services; air quality analysis; and acoustical, noise and vibration consulting services.

“AKRF is excited to open our newest Philadelphia area office, which represents an investment in the future of this city and a commitment to its continued growth,” says Edward Applebome, president of AKRF.  “With Shandor’s leadership and expertise, our Center City office will allow us to better serve our clients and offer our extensive array of environmental, planning and engineering services to other public and private entities they could benefit.”

“Philadelphia is at the forefront of environmental innovation, with businesses and municipalities across the country emulating their practices,” said Szalay. “AKRF’s expanded presence will allow us to advance the work that we have been doing to support this important effort. I look forward to continuing to do great things in partnership with our clients in the region.”

The new Center City office will serve as AKRF’s headquarters in the Philadelphia metro area. The firm has been a trusted partner to clients in the region for over two decades, and opened its Mt. Laurel, NJ, office in 2004. Earlier this year, AKRF opened a field office on North American Street, which houses its GreenUp Landscape, Environmental Restoration and Maintenance division.
