Why FST?

At FST, our 100-year legacy of solid, efficient and cost-effective engineering, planning and environmental consulting for clients of all sizes and types is a testament to the principles upon which our founders established their company. Our longevity is no accident. We understand and proudly carry on the commitment to excellence, quality and client service that Frederic Fay, Charles Spofford and Sturgis Thorndike insisted on more than a century ago.

We reside in a unique space in our industry, as an independent, mid-sized firm with deep expertise in several markets. Our projects range from massive, multi-million-dollar megaprojects that take years to design and construct, to small site development and environmental remediation projects that can take a few days from start to finish. This is by design. We have the resources and experience to handle extremely large, complex projects beyond the capabilities of smaller firms, but we still deliver the personalized customer service to our public- and private-sector clients that the globally focused conglomerates can't.
