The Brisbane Building has another new tenant. Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. (GPI), an engineering consulting firm that specializes in the innovative design and construction of transportation infrastructure and building projects, has opened an office within the building that will furnish amenities for 14 employees. GPI, which operates in Cheektowaga, is transferring the branch of its office that focuses on design and construction inspection, primarily in infrastructure systems, including bridges, roads, complete streets, water and wastewater systems and recreational trails. The employees will occupy a space on the third floor of the building. A look at some of the assets/offerings that are included with the building include:

  • Up-to-date mechanical systems, elegant building lobby
  • Fully appointed 600 square foot conference room available to our tenants without cost

In his remarks on the move, GPI chief executive officer Christer Ericsson, P.E. noted, “GPI’s roots are based on our close working relationship with local government, dating back to 1966 and the firm’s inception in the Village of Babylon, New York, where our first contracts were with the village and nearby NYSDOT Region 10.”
