Summer Interns


Thanks and best wishes to our six summer interns – Corey Gallagher (Marketing), Gia Panagakos (Human Resources), Joseph Amendola (Architecture), Michael Ambrulavage (Highway Infrastructure), Seth Gulich and Zachary Wattles (Survey) – for all your hard work and meaningful contributions to our firm’s successes this summer.

Our interns met with Borton-Lawson CEO Christopher Borton and Human Resources Director Doreen Rushton yesterday afternoon to discuss their experiences and time here. They were then treated to a “thank-you” dinner last night in appreciation of all their contributions this summer.

Best of luck to our talented interns as they begin to head back to school and begin the fall semester!

Borton-Lawson Announces Waste Reduction and Alternative Print Initiative

Borton-Lawson is pleased to announce an internal campaign that will help us become more environmentally friendly by reducing our use of paper. The Waste Reduction and Alternative Print (WRAP) initiative will help us achieve environmental and cost-saving goals by focusing on one key area of unnecessary waste – printing.

To help raise awareness of our printing output, Borton-Lawson will have a contest for employees to guess how many pages were printed firm-wide in June 2015.

Going forward, our teams will closely monitor and report on monthly page counts to track usage and trends. They will then analyze those reports to create and improve workflows, which will reduce misprints and overall usage.

Join us in this effort to help create a more environmentally friendly, paperless world! Remember, “Think Before You Print!”
