Most recently, the firm was re- sponsible for a 1.5 million s/f warehouse in Cinnaminson. “After two decades as a civil survey and site planning firm, we now look to the future as part of a top architecture and engineering firm that shares

Stout, PE, CMS,

LS, and principal. “We believe PS&S shares our work ethic and drive, which makes this a great fit for our team.” “One of the objectives of our five-year strategic growth plan has been to increase PS&S’ in- house capability for survey,” said Sartor. “With the addition of Stout & Caldwell – through organic growth and acquisi- tion – we have increased our headcount in survey by five- fold to 50 professionals all under the same umbrella.” Continued Sartor, “From a geographic standpoint, Stout & Caldwell is known as the

‘go-to’ firm for navigating the land use approval process in Southern Jersey, which is of tremendous benefit to us -- and everyone in the greater community of residential and commercial real estate devel- opers in our state.” Becica Associates LLC With roots that date back to 1964, Becica Associates is a second-generation firm of architects and engineers that was formed in 2000 by Ivan Becica, P.E., F.ASCE, Ste- ven Becica, AIA, LEED AP and John Middleton, P.E. continued on page 12B
