C&S Overview

Founded in 1968, the C&S Companies are known nationwide for client-focused engineering, architecture, planning, environmental, and construction services. Clients across the country trust C&S to deliver successful projects time and time again. Our staff of more than 400 has the expertise to handle almost any challenge. The diversity of C&S’s services is unique in the industry, with professionals in a wide range of specialized and unique disciplines. This enables us to support an incredible range of project types and specialties in house. With a focus on quality, we work toward the common goal of planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining the built and natural environments. Our experts support each other by collaborating on projects, combining their knowledge to deliver the best solutions to each client. This internal partnership means that we are as proficient at managing complex, multi-million-dollar projects requiring myriad services as we are at small projects involving only one specialty. Project management and production groups coordinate from inception through construction, enabling C&S to provide a continuity of service that our clients rely on. C&S’s main service areas are centered on facilities, aviation, surface transportation, environmental, site development, technology solutions, land use & market strategies, construction & program management, and construction services. C&S primarily serves local, state, and federal governments; industry and manufacturing; and private businesses.

C&S’s core values can be summed in four distinct points:

  • Authenticity
  • Team Spirit
  • Integrity
  • All-In

Our core purpose as an organization is “to improve communities while providing opportunities and growth for our team.”

On January 1, 1968, professional engineers Mike Calocerinos and Frank Spina opened for business in Syracuse, New York. Their goal was to provide engineering services in a more personalized, high-quality manner. The six-person firm, named Calocerinos and Spina Consulting Engineers, concentrated on civil engineering (sewage and drainage) for local municipalities. Over the past 47 years, C&S has expanded from our roots as small municipal engineering firm to a full-service national design, planning, and construction services firm. We have established offices in New York, Ohio, Michigan, Arizona, California, Florida, and Pennsylvania, and project-specific offices in Texas and Kentucky. Now providing a wide array of service solutions, the C&S organization continues to emphasize a very personal, customer-centric approach to business. There have been many changes at C&S over the past few decades, all of which have been aimed at meeting the evolving needs of our clients and communities.
