NEW YORK—Perkins&Will and mobility consultancy partner Nelson\Nygaard have added two key hires to their teams in New York: Michal Mrowiec and Clayton Lane. Mrowiec joins Perkins&Will as the transportation practice leader for the firm’s New York studio, and Lane joins Nelson\Nygaard as senior principal for planning and strategies. Both work in the firms’ shared studio space in Manhattan, bolstering their combined transit practice in the Northeastern U.S.
“We are thrilled to welcome Michal and Clayton, and we look forward to working together to serve clients in the major Northeast metro areas and beyond,” says Robert Clemens, managing director of Perkins&Will’s New York studio. “There is a tremendous amount of growth and important work happening in transportation, especially as investments are made on federal, state and local levels to reinvigorate our transit infrastructure and architecture.”
Perkins&Will is further investing in this transportation growth: In addition to welcoming Mrowiec and Lane, the firm announced in May that Julie Wienberg had joined to lead its aviation practice.
The partnership between Perkins&Will and Nelson\Nygaard offers the firms’ clients a unique integration of transit planning, strategies, and design throughout all stages of complex mobility projects. Recent joint work includes: Austin and CapMetro’s Equitable Transit-Oriented Development (ETOD) Policy and Station Area Planning; a downtown master plan for the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Orlando; and the Sacramento Valley Station (SVS) high speed rail vision plan. Regionally, Nelson\Nygaard is also developing Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority’s (SEPTA) “Bus Revolution” network redesign. Perkins&Will’s recent work includes a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) station design in partnership with NADAAA.
