Whitman is a full-service environmental, engineering and renewable energy consulting firm that was founded in July 1985 by Ira L. Whitman, Ph.D., P.E. and his wife Audrey. Since our founding, we have remained committed to providing exceptional service to our clients by clearly defining our project goals and delivering completed work on time and at a fair cost to our clients.
In 2003, there was an internal ownership transition in which the majority interest in the firm was acquired by its current CEO Barry Skoultchi, P.E. and President Todd Gerber, LSRP. Both Mr. Skoultchi and Mr. Gerber have been with Whitman for more than 20 years. This acquisition continued the continuity of our senior management and allowed for a seamless transition. Following the internal ownership transition, Whitman proceeded to build a management team of both long term and new senior employees to set the stage for the growth and vision of the firm.
In 2007, Whitman acquired Brownworth Engineering expanding its capabilities to include mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services. Brownworth has a forty plus year history of cutting-edge design work, consistently furnishing clients with ideas and solutions that bring creative and practical insight to complex engineering problems. The acquisition has created one of the largest full-service firms in the Northeast, providing expertise in a multitude of environmental and engineering services as well as project management. It is our goal to provide exceptional service in all areas of our expertise, truly offering a one-stop solution for site planning and development.
In 2009, Whitman acquired an ownership interest in Pro-Tech Energy Solutions, a self-funded, turnkey energy services company offering a wide range of energy solutions and services for residential and commercial properties. From simple lighting upgrades to utility scale solar installations, Pro-Tech’s team of seasoned experts design and implement customized solutions so that clients can achieve cost effective, long-term savings. This partnership allows our firms to deliver turnkey energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions to the Mid-Atlantic region. The collaboration allows Whitman to assist Pro-Tech by providing practical solutions to the many complex engineering challenges that arise before and during the installation of a renewable energy or energy efficiency system.
Also in 2009, Whitman acquired LJS Construction, a full-service environmental remediation and construction company with a proven track record in building decontamination and demolition, as well as extensive experience working with residential, commercial, industrial and government clients. The addition of the LJS staff to Whitman’s existing team of established professionals enables us to assist our clients through every phase of the development process, including rehabilitating, decontaminating or demolishing existing structures. Since our inception, we have strived to meet our customer’s needs in every aspect of the services we offer, and we are pleased to be able to provide complementary remediation and construction services with this latest addition.
Whitman is built on a foundation of accomplished scholars who round out their professional training with real-world experience. Our roster of engineers, geologists, and scientists has the experience and dedication to provide practical solutions to many complex problems – whether that be remediating a former industrial site contaminated by years of chemical discharges, performing structural assessments and preparing site plans, or designing an energy efficient lighting, HVAC and electrical system for a local high school.
From municipal buildings to hotels, new development to remodeling, we strive to be a valued member of your business, legal and development team. We believe that our excellence doesn’t go unnoticed – much of our new business comes from the referrals of other satisfied clients.
Since our beginning in 1985, we have successfully completed thousands of projects in New Jersey and surrounding states. Our ability to identify and secure state and federal funding to help off-set a project’s costs is unmatched in the industry.
