New Practice Areas


WSP USA (Reston, VA) for its introduction of a suite of services for energy and water management program assessment and development under the company’s new Industrial Energy and Water Management practice. The services include strategic planning with a bottom-up and top-down approach to evaluating water and energy consumption reduction measures, the management of downstream waste and wastewater generation, and the control of associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts. The linkage between energy, water, wastewater, and GHG emissions has become an important topic for industrial manufacturing operations, and productivity initiatives across the industrial manufacturing sector are creating demand for energy and water programs that reduce operating costs while providing environmental benefits. WSP’s Industrial Energy and Water Management team, led by Todd Musterait, a licensed professional engineer and certified LEED and ISI Envision sustainability professional, customizes programs that allow clients to optimize energy and water use, effectively manage waste and wastewater, and drive improvements that use resources more efficiently, all of which bring cost savings to the organization while reducing its environmental footprint.

Groundwater & Environmental Services, Inc. (GES; Neptune, NJ) for the establishment of a new operations, maintenance, and monitoring (OM&M) "Center of Excellence" (COE) Consolidating GES' expertise and service offering in OM&M, the new initiative addresses the need for consistent quality assurance, safety, and risk management across large-scale environmental programs in what is often the most expensive and lengthy phase of a remediation project. The COE leverages GES' strong technical field capabilities, a highly effective behavior-based safety program—one that yielded zero, recordable injuries over a full calendar year—and a geographically dispersed talent base into an offering that facilitates the sharing of best practices and lessons learned across the GES enterprise. It is part of a cohesive program management approach that encompasses sophisticated account management, detailed quality standards for systems engineering and OM&M, and the use of a balanced scorecard system with metrics to drive high performance and continuous improvement. GES performs more than $20 million annually in OM&M services for Fortune 100 manufacturing and oil and gas companies as well as state and federal agencies.
