H2M Named ENR New York Design Firm of the Year

ENR New York has named H2M as its 2024 Design Firm of the Year and will be recognized in the May print issue of ENR New York. The firm has demonstrated success in the region from a growth and revenue standpoint as well as for innovation, creativity and commitment to giving back to its community.

During the last 90 years, H2M has become one of the leading professional service provider in the region and played a significant role in the advancement of engineering services. H2M utilizes cutting-edge technology to offer multiple quality services and sound judgement while adhering to its distinct core values.

The firm’s capabilities include the full range of professional engineering services such as civil, site, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, structural, water supply management, wastewater management, full environmental services, industrial hygiene, solid and hazardous waste management, planning, survey and GIS/mapping.

H2M has engineered and designed projects of nearly every size, shape, scope, and discipline throughout the many communities of Long Island and beyond. The firm has been instrumental in the development of key infrastructure while protecting the Island’s precious environmental resources. H2M has been the Engineer of Record for more than 30 public water suppliers and sewer districts, some for as long as 70 consecutive years.

This past year, H2M has expanded to over 550 employees and opened four new office locations bringing its total to fifteen offices. Part of that ongoing expansion is thanks to the company’s focus on professional development and empowerment. Some of the company’s professional development services include supporting licensing and access to professional memberships, tuition assistance, and comprehensive training opportunities for leadership and supervisory roles to promote upward mobility. These initiatives have led the firm to training and employing 117 professional engineers, 45 engineers in training, 72 registered architects, 37 LEED Accredited Professionals, and 12 LEED Green Associates.

Some of the firm’s recent notable projects include:

MEP Engineering for Stony Brook Clinical at Smith Haven Mall

Stony Brook Clinical is a cutting-edge healthcare hub that offers a “one-stop shop” for patients seeking a multitude of medical specialties. The 170,000-sq-ft space, previously occupied by Sears, was poised to reshape the way healthcare services are accessed and experienced, creating a seamless blend of medical expertise and retail convenience. The Advanced Specialty Care Facility at Smith Haven Mall stands as a testament to the power of innovation, collaboration, and engineering excellence in service of the community.

Hutchinson Valley Trunk Sewer Realignment

The Hutchinson Valley sewer trunk was a sewer pipe with push on joints that was at risk of contaminating a downstream nature preserve. H2M provided assistance during bidding, pre-construction and site meetings, traffic control plans, construction-related services, and the safe abandonment of the old pipe and manholes. Construction involved trenching along the Parkway shoulder, across the exit ramp, and onto a road island. There were no subconsultants on this project but a contractor conducted construction inspections. The final cost was approximately 10% under budget and two months ahead of schedule.

West Nyack Revitalization Park and Environmental Impact Study

West Nyack Revitalization Park and Environmental Impact Study is a renovation and improvement of the degraded park’s wetlands, as well as the aging amenities of the park. H2M proposed the following design features: a constructed wetlands area; naturalistic channels with improved riparian buffer; off-street parking; a new playground; an updated passive park; and an environmental education trail. H2M assisted the Town in obtaining a Green Innovation Grant from the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation to offset costs from this project without using taxpayer dollars.
