While other companies are pulling back in the face of the economic downturn, Design Consultants, Inc. (DCI), a civil engineering, planning and land surveying firm based in Somerville, is expanding its presence on the North Shore with a new office in Newburyport.

Staffing the office are DCI engineering manager Stephen Sawyer, P.E., and land surveying department manager Everett Chandler, PLS.

"DCI has always had a strong presence on the North Shore and in the Merrimack Valley and this new office helps bring us closer to the clients and projects that we serve in the area," says David Giangrande, P.E., president of Design Consultants. "We see Newburyport and its surrounding communities as a growth area for the work we do, particularly municipal infrastructure projects in the short term and residential and commercial real estate development in the longer term."

DCI was founded in 1980 by Arthur Giangrande, PE, PLS, who remains chairman of the board. David Giangrande joined the firm in 1987 and assumed the president's role in 1998. The firm has worked on a number of high-profile projects in Massachusetts, including:

. The $22 million full-depth reconstruction of Somerville Avenue, which was the featured project in the December 2010 issue of Rebuilding America's Infrastructure magazine.
. The reconstruction of Main Street/Route 28 in Andover.
. The $12 million reconstruction of Huntington Avenue in Boston.
. The renovation and restoration of the Charleston Chew candy factory into Charleston Lofts, and former factory in East Boston into the luxury condos, Porter 156.
. The redesign and reconstruction of Monument Square in Haverhill.
. The renovation and reconstruction of a major mixed-use project at East Mills in North Andover.
. Residential and commercial projects all across the North Shore, South Shore, MetroWest and Boston's Inner Core.

Sawyer and Chandler will help bring DCI's extensive full-service capabilities to their well-established clients and contacts in the area, as well as to new prospective opportunities. DCI provides a full breadth of services in civil engineering, transportation and traffic consulting and planning, environmental engineering and land surveying. The firm also specializes in helping municipalities navigate the funding process and maximize opportunities to secure grants and loans to drive major infrastructure projects.

The new address for the Newburyport office is 68 Pleasant Street and the phone number is 978-358-7173. You can reach Steve Sawyer at ssawyer@dci-ma.com, Everett Chandler at echandler@dci-ma.com and David Giangrande at dgiangrande@dci-ma.com.
