Langan Opens Office in Tampa

Firm Adds Third Florida Location Offering Fully Integrated Services

Parsippany, NJ (June 7, 2017) – Langan Engineering & Environmental Services officially announced the opening of its Tampa office. With a third location in Florida, Langan strengthens its reach and resources in the state, while adding a key location on the Gulf Coast. Three experienced Florida Principals – Roger Archabal, PE, Matthew Meyer, PE, D.GE and Vincent Yarina, PG – are leading the Tampa office, which is located at 8875 Hidden River Parkway.

Langan currently possesses significant Tampa project experience, including One Tampa City Center, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino expansion, Tampa International Airport, Market Square at Tampa Palms, Mirabay Development, Season’s 52 @ West Shore Plaza Mall, Selmon Expressway forensic consulting, Bayway Apartments, Tampa Palms Hartline Park and Ride, and the upcoming St. Petersburg high-rises and Tampa towers downtown.

“Tampa continues to experience significant growth in many real estate market sectors,” said Archabal. “Matt, Vince and I have developed strong relationships in Tampa over the years and we are excited to take Langan’s business there to a new level.”

Importantly, Langan made a strategic hire in Michael Schackne, PG, to head the environmental practice in Tampa. Schackne brings 30 years of experience leading full-scale contamination assessments for both petroleum and non-petroleum contaminants at properties ranging from commercial real estate to heavy industrial. He also specializes in developing strategies to redevelop Brownfield properties throughout Florida.

“Langan has more than 25 years of experience in Tampa and our success there will only increase as a result of having an office in the city,” said David T. Gockel, President/ CEO, Langan. “Roger, Matt and Vince have put together a team of experts with local knowledge of the region, and I am confident that our clients will realize great value from our approach and responsiveness, which will raise the bar for consultant performance in and around Tampa.”
