C&S Added to New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry
C&S was recently added to the newly launched New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry. The honorary program, administered by the Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, highlights businesses that have been in operation for at least 50 years and have helped to shape the history, heritage, and identity of the communities they serve. Nominations to the registry must be sponsored by an elected state official. C&S’s nomination was submitted by Pamela J. Hunter, Assemblymember for the 128th District of the New York State Legislature. “We appreciate Assemblywoman Hunter and her staff for nominating C&S as a New York State Historic Business,” said John Trimble, C&S’s President and CEO. “Although we now operate across the U.S., considering we were founded in New York State and continue to be locally owned, makes this recognition very special.”
C&S opened for business in Syracuse, New York in 1968 as a six-person firm concentrated on civil engineering (sewage and drainage) for local municipalities. Over the past 54 years, C&S has expanded from its roots as a small municipal engineering firm to a full-service national design, planning, and construction services firm employing over 600 staff. C&S continues to play an active role in enhancing the New York communities it serves through its work improving the State’s infrastructure and through its focus on stimulating positive impacts to humanitarian, educational, and community causes through financial support and volunteerism. The full registry can be found on the Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation website.
