Nitsch Engineering celebrated their 25th anniversary by honoring their commitment to “building better communities with you.” Working closely with Boston Cares, a non-profit agency that produces team-oriented volunteer events, Nitsch Engineering planned a community service event and celebration on September 4th. The event brought clients, friends, and employees together at Boston University’s Agganis Arena to assemble 60,000 meals to benefit Massachusetts food pantries. The event ended with a party to celebrate the milestone anniversary and thank all the volunteers.

Nitsch Engineering President and CEO Lisa A. Brothers, PE, LEED AP BD+C, said, “When we started discussing how to celebrate our anniversary, we felt that it was important to find a way to combine celebration with community service, since that’s such a big part of who we are as a company. By donating the money to cover the cost of ingredients for more than 60,000 meals, we were able to honor the spirit and commitment of our tagline, ‘building better communities with you.’” She went on to say, “It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since we opened our doors. Time really does fly when you’re having fun! We’re thrilled that our future looks bright, as we continue to grow and expand our services. We know the next 25 years will be just as great!”

Since the company’s founding in 1989, Nitsch Engineering has grown from a one-person civil engineering company into an 85-person firm that also provides land surveying, transportation engineering, structural engineering, green infrastructure, planning, and geographic information systems (GIS) services. Founding Principal and Chairman Judith Nitsch, PE, LEED AP BD+C, commented, “Thanks to our terrific clients, fabulous employees, and wonderful projects in 18 states and five countries, we’ve been able to grow into a successful, respected company that just keeps getting better!”
