New York — Loring Consulting Engineers, a leading building systems design and energy consulting firm headquartered in New York, announces the opening of offices in Philadelphia, PA, and Gaithersburg, MD. The new locations expand Loring’s geographic reach through seven offices along the East Coast and in Toronto, Canada, giving the firm a strong local presence in high growth markets for its commercial, healthcare, laboratory, higher education and historic restoration practices.
Philadelphia: New Office, Old Friends
Loring has a long history in the Philadelphia market, including work for the University of the Arts, University of Pennsylvania, IBM, and various commercial office and retail clients. Currently, the firm is serving as prime consultant on a $100 million mechanical upgrade at the Philadelphia Customs House for the General Services Administration (GSA). Design and construction on the 17-story historic building will be phased over several years to accommodate building occupants.
The Philadelphia office, located in the heart of the city at One Liberty Place, will be led by Vincent Farese, PE, Principal-in-Charge of the firm’s Princeton office, and Randy Cook, PE, Vice President.
Gaithersburg: Beyond the Beltway
Loring is branching out from its Washington, DC office to be better positioned to focus on research laboratories, healthcare, higher education and commercial opportunities along the I-270 Technology Corridor, from Bethesda to Frederick and northeast to Baltimore. The new Maryland office, at 9711 Washingtonian Boulevard in Gaithersburg, will be managed by J. Michael Galway, PE, one of two Principals in Loring’s Washington, DC office, and Vice President Moustapha Diack, PE. Galway will continue to co-lead the DC office with Hallah Abodaff, PE, who will take on an expanded role in the day-to-day management there.
