Local engineering firms Divney Tung Schwalbe and Provident Design Engineering join forces to offer wider services to Westchester businesses.

Westchester planning and engineering firms Divney Tung Schwalbe and Provident Design Engineering have merged to create DTS Provident Design Engineering, LLP. Both firms are Westchester-based and will remain located on 1 North Broadway in White Plains, the former headquarters of DTS. As a team, DTS Provident Design Engineering will continue to focus on Westchester and the Hudson Valley area.

The two firms have worked together since the 1990s, as noted by principal-in-chief of DTS Provident Design Engineering Andrew Tung in a recent statement announcing the merger. “We take a very similar approach to our clients with a focus on service and bringing an in-depth knowledge of the municipalities and counties in which we work.”

Tung adds, “We are both locally founded and based, and we believe that makes a difference in today’s regulatory environment.”

Charles ‘Carlito’ Holt, partner of Provident, agrees that the two firms are a “good fit,” adding that they approach their work the same way. As longtime members of the Westchester community, the leaders of the two firms say they are committed to maintaining their strong relationship with the county moving forward.

“We have collaborated as co-consultants on projects for over 20 years. By joining forces, DTS Provident brings greater resources, capabilities, and efficiencies for wider and deeper coverage under one roof. It makes sense for us and for our clients,” says Provident Partner Brian Dempsey.

Both DTS and Provident Design Engineering have their hands in many of the Westchester developments being constructed right now. DTS mostly focuses on the private sector of Westchester, guiding businesses through the extensive approval process of developments like the Alexan residential project in Harrison and the Edge-On-Hudson redevelopment at the former General Motors site in Sleepy Hollow.

Provident’s projects have historically been split between the public and private sectors. Right now, the Town of Mount Pleasant is reviewing the $3 billion North 60 bioscience complex in which Provident is involved, and the firm is also representing the Town of Goshen in the development of LEGOLAND on Route 17. Together, the two firms will continue to offer land planning, landscape architecture, and project management services to both the public and private sectors in Westchester and the Hudson Valley.
