Community Support

Supporting Our Local Community

Our firm recognizes and embraces our responsibility to contribute to the betterment of our local community , and is actively involved and supportive of numerous non-profit organizations including the Chester Hose Co., Historical Society, Land Trust, Boy Scouts, Elementary School, Camp Hazen YMCA and other community projects.

Chester Elementary School S.T.E.A.M.

For the past 15 years, our firm has sponsored the Elementary School S.T.E.A.M. event to encourage young students to explore the sciences and develop solutions to everyday problems. Each year we provide prizes to all 100+ participants with special gifts to the 20 finalists who advance to the Statewide Invention Convention Competition. Our engineers look forward to the opportunity to speak with students about their projects, assist in the judging, and to encourage creative thinking.

Camp Hazen YMCA

For more than two decades our firm has had a special place in its heart for Camp Hazen YMCA with its mission of helping youth to develop valuable life skills through camping experiences that build healthy bodies, open minds and awakened spirits. Individual staff members continue to serve on the camp’s Board of Directors, and our entire staff have been actively involved in assisting the camp with the implementation of its long-term Master Plan to improve facilities.

To celebrate our firm’s 35th Anniversary in 2007, a $25,000 contribution was made, with the naming of a cabin “Nate’s Place” in honor of our company founder.
