Local Government Sector

DW Smith Associates, LLC, a subsidiary of PS&S, LLC, has been providing professional consulting services to New Jersey municipalities and counties since 1965. Integrating multiple disciplines, such as surveying and engineering, has allowed our firm to offer a full spectrum of services to our local government clients throughout the years.

For most of our firm’s history, we have held an on-call contract with Ocean County, providing numerous surveying services in support of major roadway improvement projects, including county highways, multi-lane intersections and local streets.

DW Smith Associates has served as Special Projects Consultant for a number of municipal projects for the City of Long Branch, Brick Township, Lakewood Township, Township of Ocean, Berkeley Township, Upper Freehold, Jackson Township Municipal Utilities Authority and NJ American Water.

Many of our projects have received recognition, including most recently our Manahassett Creek Park project, for which we earned the 2013 Distinguished Engineering Award presented by the New Jersey Alliance for Action. DW Smith Associates served as the professional engineering consulting firm for the City of Long Branch for this project, which consisted of the design and construction of an active recreational park on a 19+ acre site.

The team at DW Smith understands the unique needs of local government projects, including planning and design, along with funding and operations.

Our firm’s professional services can support a variety of local government projects, such as roadway improvements, drainage remediation, stormwater management improvements, park/recreational complex design, downtown revitalization, site plan review, environmental impact studies, environmental assessments, master planning, preparation of digital tax maps and zoning map updates.
