16 Jan CRAINS: AECOM, with big plans and momentum, opens Brooklyn office
The design and engineering giant AECOM has opened an office at Industry City as the firm’s portfolio of Brooklyn projects has grown.
The company has leased 15,000 square feet at the Sunset Park complex and in recent weeks began occupying the space, which it is using to house about 80 employees in its urban design group.
“This is exactly the kind of space that AECOM should be in,” said Chris Ward, a senior vice president at the firm. “It’s an open floor plan that’s a mix of both the past and the future and I want the professionals at AECOM to be thinking of that all the time.”
