Business has been moderate this year at Penhallegon Associates Consulting Engineers, according to executive vice president Ann Symonds. While private development work has slowed, PACE has kept busy this year with public work and ongoing work for developers.

PACE acquired two firms recently, Symonds Consulting Engineers, and Landmark. The Symonds office in Seattle has become PACE's Seattle office. Total staff numbers approximately 90, which is equal to the number at this time last year. Gross fees for 2002 are expected to be $8.5 million, compared to the total of $7.3 million for 2001.

The firm provides civil engineering, land surveying and planning services for public and private clients in water, surface water, wastewater, transportation and site development fields, primarily in the Puget Sound area. Major public markets include special purpose districts (water and sewer districts). The firm also works for private major developers of office, commercial and residential projects.

Representative projects include Sound Transit segments in Seattle, with drainage design and cost estimating for the 4.3 miles of at-grade track; The Summit, two high-rise offices buildings in Bellevue; geographic information systems surveying for the city of Mercer Island; low pressure improvements for Alderwood water and wastewater district, to upgrade a 440-acre zone in the water system; and Val Vue Duwamish area improvements, Tukwila, including a new sewer system, pump station, watermain replacement and street improvements.
