The Business Council of Westchester Honors Divney Tung Schwalbe for Small Business Success
White Plains, NY (April 2010) --- Divney Tung Schwalbe, a White Plains-based land planning, engineering and landscape architecture firm, was recently inducted into the Business Council of Westchester’s Business Hall of Fame as the 2010 winner of its Small Business Success Award. The company was recognized for its exemplary work in conceiving and implementing what it describes as “intelligent land use” solutions.
Founded in 1972, Divney Tung Schwalbe is one of the most respected and effective land use firms in the region, with an expert team of land planners, landscape architects, engineers, and engineering technology professionals who help clients to envision and achieve successful and responsible development projects.
The Westchester County Business Hall of Fame Award is presented annually by the Business Council of Westchester to five businesses or individuals in the categories of Small Business Success, Entrepreneurial Success, Family Business Success, Women in Business Success and Corporate Citizenship.
Winners of the prestigious accolade must demonstrate longstanding contributions and commitment to the Westchester community.
“This award is very meaningful to our management and our staff,” says Andrew Tung, Partner, Divney Tung Schwalbe. “It recognizes the significant work we do and reveals an increased awareness of sustainability issues from resource conservation to low-impact design. As a company that usually works a bit under the radar, we are thrilled at this opportunity to share our success with the community.”
The DTS impressive roster of both private and public clients from the tri-state region and beyond, spans from corporate headquarters and institutional facilities to residential communities, historic properties and recreational sites. The firm has planned land use projects in more than 85% of Westchester’s municipalities.
Partners Mike Divney, licensed professional engineer and certified planner; Andrew Tung, registered landscape architect, lawyer, and LEED-accredited professional; and Jerry Schwalbe, licensed civil engineer each bring a unique background and perspective to the design and implementation of their client’s projects, resulting in a fully integrated combination of services that distinguish them from other firms in their field.
According to Divney, the company’s success stems from this wide range of staff capabilities and professional backgrounds, as well as the close interaction between the in-house professionals. It allows them to cross-pollinate ideas and blend expertises to shape sustainable projects that serve both the private and public interests.
The firm leverages its diverse professional expertise to provide clients with both the big picture vision as well as a meticulous attention to detail necessary to achieve intelligent and responsible development.
Divney Tung Schwalbe was honored at the ninth annual Business Hall of Fame Awards Dinner, held on April 21, 2010, at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle.
