Environmental Science Associates (ESA), a leading environmental consulting firm, is expanding the firm’s reach in the Pacific Northwest with a new office at 2863 NW Crossing Drive, Suite 100, Bend, Oregon. Susan Cunningham, ESA’s Biological Resources Director for Oregon, will be serving as the office director.
“We have been partnering with clients in Central Oregon for nearly 13 years,” says Margaret Clancy, ESA’s Pacific Northwest Regional Director. “Establishing an office in Bend enables us to more efficiently help our growing client base tackle complex environmental projects that require deep expertise in planning, biology, engineering, and design. We are confident that under Susan’s leadership, we will be better able to help Central Oregon clients implement important projects that benefit local communities.” For the last three years, ESA has been working with Bend Parks and Recreation on the design of the new regional park Riley Ranch Nature Reserve, which is currently under construction. The firm is also working on the Daimler Proofing Ground development at the Madras Airport and the Master Plan for the Redmond Airport, and will be providing the City of Bend with archeological and permitting support on an upgrade to the Plant Interceptor sewer line.
The Bend office is supported by a team of more than 90 professionals based in the Pacific Northwest. These environmental scientists, biologists, landscape architects, water resources engineers, archeologists, and planners work in interdisciplinary teams to deliver solutions to complex problems, from the recent listing of the Oregon spotted frog, to ongoing stormwater management challenges, to permitting the infrastructure needed to support economic development.
