Since our founding in 1989, Nitsch Engineering has been providing engineering and planning services for infrastructure and site development projects in Massachusetts. As the result of our innovative thinking, proactive approach, and collaborative working style, our clients quickly began bringing us with them to work on projects outside the state; Nitsch Engineering has now worked in 19 states across the country.
We began collaborating with the University of Virginia in 2000, which led to a consistent flow of projects with UVA and other universities in the state. Nitsch Engineering began working in Washington, D.C. in 2009, when we designed sustainable stormwater management systems for the District’s Canal Park. In 2013, we won DC Water’s international competition to design green infrastructure solutions for Kennedy Street; Nitsch Engineering continues to work with DC Water to integrate green infrastructure into the District’s urban streetscapes.
By opening an office in the District in 2016, Nitsch Engineering is now able to better serve our existing clients and projects in the District, Virginia, and Maryland. Read more about our new office here.
