Time to meet the talent behind what makes PDE tick. First up Steve!

How long have you been at PDE?
I’ve been at PDE since the beginning which is 2 years now, and have worked with my colleagues for the past 14 years.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The best part of the job is actually being able to see your work come to life, especially when we recommend a roadway improvement as part of a Traffic Study and finally seeing it constructed and operating in real life.
Can you name something specifically PDE did to assist a client?
For the New Lowes project in Yorktown we performed a multifaceted cut/fill analysis for the construction phases of the project to limit the amount of soils being imported or exported to/from the site.
What is your favorite part of working at PDE?
The best part is definitely the close-knit collaborative working environment.
What makes PDE highly effective for your clients?
PDE has a highly experienced group that can offer a competitive price when compared to some of the larger engineering companies.
Tell us something about yourself. Where do you live? Married? Hobbies?
I currently live in Fairview New Jersey with my wife Sandra, who is currently pregnant with our first child(!) and our dog Peaches and cat Pickles. I love hockey and personally play ice and roller, and am a big fan of the New Jersey Devils! Let’s go devils!
