PBS Engineering and Environmental has a new office in the Maple Street Building at 1180 N.W. Maple St. in Issaquah, offering civil, geotechnical and environmental engineering services for public and private infrastructure projects.
The firm is leasing 3,000 square feet, and was represented by Jeff Chaney of Kidder Mathews. Jeff Jochums and Rick Hart of CBRE represented Washington Capital Management.
The office has a staff of six, but PBS said it plans to expand over the next year.
David Segal, an Issaquah resident with over 20 years of experience in public works engineering, construction management, hydrology, site design and roadway engineering, heads the office.
The Portland-based firm has over 200 employees and 10 offices in the Northwest, six of them in Washington.
In a press release, PBS said it selected Issaquah because it is near the firm's Seattle operations and a growing professional talent pool.
Brian Stanford, the firm's COO and Seattle operations manager, said, "The surge of infrastructure growth in the region has spurred many clients to seek out turn-key capabilities."
The firm now has environmental contracts with the Washington Department of Enterprise Services, University of Washington and the Port of Seattle, and recently did environmental clean-up consulting for the Washington State Patrol.
PBS's core services include engineering, environmental, industrial hygiene, planning, surveying and natural resource consulting. In April, it acquired Northwest engineering firm HDJ Design Group, adding 70 staff and new capabilities.
