Businessexcellence July 07 74 Paulus, Sokolowski & Sartor, or PS&S, has grown steadily into a diversified engineering, architecture and land planning firm; one that president and COO Mike Gennaro tells Keith Regan is not afraid of tackling the toughest projects Up for a challenge

July 07 Businessexcellence PS&S 75 For years, the former municipal landfill in Atlantic City remained vacant as developers steered clear of the potential redevelopment site, believing that little of the 130-acre parcel was suitable for building due to the presence of regulated wetlands, a landfill and weak soil conditions. That changed when Paulus, Sokolowski and Sartor (PS&S) found a way to work with a client and regulators to establish true wetlands boundaries on the site, restore critical wildlife habitat, properly close the landfill and create what has become a signature redevelopment project in the New Jersey resort community, the Borgata Hotel Casino at Renaissance Pointe.

The project is one of many PS&S has had a hand in making possible in Atlantic City and around the New York metropolitan area, where it works on utility projects, pharmaceutical facilities, hospitals and health care facilities, corporate headquarters and building projects for both K-12 and higher educational institutions. The 45-year-old, 500-employee strong firm, which last year booked around $78 million worth of projects, isn’t afraid of tackling difficult challenges, says president and chief operating officer Mike Gennaro. “Owners often come to us with their difficult sites because we have a history of successfully permitting them and getting them built,” Gennaro said. “We’ve worked on some of the more difficult projects in the area, in terms of permitting as well as engineering and site construction challenges.” In fact, the Borgata project is one of many in the PS&S portfolio that has earned the firm industry awards and kudos, including an Honor Award for engineering excellence from the Consulting Engineers Council of New Jersey as well as a Best Project Award in hospitality from New York Construction magazine. Another project PS&S had a hand in, the Lakeside at North Haledon residential community, also won accolades for its careful use of land around an abandoned quarry, tucking
