GZA GeoEnvironmental, which provides geotechnical, environmental, ecological, water and construction management services, has opened a Long Island office. 

The firm, which is headquartered in Norwood, Mass., now has a 2,635-square-foot office at 324 South Service Road in Melville. 

The firm’s new Long Island office is being led by GZA principal Cassandra Wetzel, who also heads the firm’s Manhattan office. 

“As a native New Yorker, the granddaughter of nurses from the Kings Park state hospital, and the niece of a former Smithtown planning director, it truly feels like coming home to bring our employee-owned company out to serve the uniquely wonderful set of communities that make up Long Island,’’ Wetzel said in a company statement. 

Patrick Sheehan, GZA’s president and CEO, said the firm has been involved in projects on Long Island for many years. 

“We are excited to add a closer local presence for our current and prospective clients through our new Melville office,” Sheehan said in the statement. “Cassandra and GZA team members in Melville will also be able to leverage the expertise and capabilities of GZA specialists throughout the country to deliver clients innovative solutions to complex challenges.” 

Chris Anastasiou, vice president of O’Leary Construction, a civil construction firm based in New Hyde Park, said he has used GZA for various projects. 

“It is great news for anyone on Long Island pursuing complex engineering and demolition projects, environmental remediation, waterfront development and resiliency projects that GZA can now serve you from their new local office in Melville,” Anastasiou said in the statement. “GZA’s engineers and professionals have unrivaled expertise and experience, they provide exceptionally responsive client service, and they produce smart, innovative solutions to all kinds of engineering and environmental challenges.” 

GZA employs more than 700 professionals among its 31 offices in 16 states.
