Fisher Associates Opens New Office in Binghamton

Fisher Associates is excited to announce the opening of a new office in the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator located at 120 Hawley Street, Suite 216, Binghamton, NY 13901.

This office space is affiliated with the University of Binghamton and is the largest New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) sponsored Clean Energy Incubator. The company looks forward to not only expanding its services and client-base within Binghamton and the Southern Tier region but also collaborating with the other companies in the incubator to further the mission of bringing new clean energy ideas to market.

Fisher is no stranger to Region 9. It has been a teaming partner on numerous projects on the University of Binghamton Campus providing a variety of services including survey, environmental screening and permitting, hazardous waste/contaminated materials assessments, and all aspects of site design. It was also a partner on the Route 17/I-81 Reconstruction Project (Prospect Mountain) for NYS DOT Region 9, involving replacement of the bridges over the Chenango River and significant safety improvements to the roadway corridor. Fisher completed the traffic analyses for the preferred alternative and critical construction stages, as well as work zone traffic control plans, and 4D visual simulations that depicted not only the 3D environment of the proposed solution but also how traffic would operate under this solution.
