Economic development is not traditionally considered a job for engineers. HEB Engineers of North Conway is working to change that perception. For over a decade, the employee-owned consulting firm has worked with non-profit development groups to plan for and build incubator space for start-up companies and job training facilities.
Jay Poulin, civil engineer responsible for HEB’s business development, discussed the firm’s role in these development projects.
“Most people think of HEB for bridge and road reconstructions, not for planning and development. We are proud of the space that has been created at the Tech Village and look forward to seeing GCEDC completed and in use. As a professional firm in the North Country, helping develop spaces for new businesses and generate professional jobs is extremely satisfying.”
