In October 2003, Jeffrey L. Ott, P.E. started Ott Consulting Inc. (OCI) with Reynold E. Petre III, P.L.S. In 2006, they purchased East Penn Engineering in the Slate Belt to expand their services into the Slate Belt and Pocono areas. OCI currently has an office in Zionsville, PA and Bangor, PA. We provide civil engineering, environmental engineering, site design, surveying, landscape architecture, sewage enforcement, aerial data capture using our UAS (drone) and geographic information system services to municipal, private, and institutional clients.
Since opening our office almost 15 years ago, we have been appointed by Washington Township, Plainfield Township, Bangor Borough, and East Bangor Borough in Northampton County as well as Upper Milford Township and Alburtis Borough in Lehigh County as their Municipal Engineer. We have also been appointed as the Alternate Municipal Engineer for Portland Borough and Wind Gap Borough in Northampton County and Hamilton Township in Monroe County, and engineer for the Roseto Borough Sewer Authority. Our municipal services include the preparation and review of various site plans, code enforcement, construction observation, sewage enforcement, application reviews, and infrastructure improvements. OCI also performs site inspections, roadway pavement design, sanitary sewer inflow/infiltration studies, environmental permitting, PennDOT permitting, MS4 and stormwater management permitting, park planning, regulatory signage and testing. With the recent opening of our expanded office in Bangor, we anticipate extending our services into the Pocono Region.
Over the past 15 years, Ott Consulting, Inc. has prepared design and construction plans for various residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional projects throughout the Lehigh Valley, the Slate Belt and beyond. Some of our most notable projects include the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley, the Weis Market in Forks Township, the new Faulkner Dealership facility on Stoke Park Road, the six-story Hyatt Place Hotel in the city of Bethlehem, a nine-story parking garage in the city of Allentown as well as several projects at the Saucon Valley Country Club. We also contracted with PPL Utilities to perform survey, design, construction observation, and as-built plans for many of their Service Center parking lot rehabilitations and expansion projects.
Recently, we completed land development plans and permitting for a two-story, 80,500-square-foot transitional care facility and a five-story, 111-room hotel and banquet center, both located at the former Center Valley Club in Stabler Corporate Center. We also provided construction survey services for a new 1.1 million-square-foot manufacturing/distribution facility on an 800-acre parcel in the Chrin Commerce Centre, and prepared land development plans for the expansion of an existing restaurant along Route 378 in Saucon Valley. More recently, we have entered into a contract with UGI to provide survey and design services.
As Ott Consulting Inc. looks forward to another 15 years of service, we anticipate growing the firm to meet the rising needs of our clients. As we have done for the past 15 years, we will continue to provide excellent service with a personal touch.
