The Albany Pine Bush Offers Tenants Far More than Office Space

For Delaware Engineering, PC, The Anderson Group’s commercial office space properties on Madison Avenue Extension offer the best of both worlds: a location with convenient access to major roads and highways that is tucked away in the Albany Pine Bush Preserve, one of the nation’s most unique and endangered natural communities. (And recently designated a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of Interior.)

“We never set out with the idea that we’d find a place next to the Pine Bush, but when we found this office location, the Pine Bush did factor into our decision to lease here,” says Lawrence Rogers, P.E., president of Delaware Engineering.


Delaware Engineering, a leading provider of water, sewer, environmental, and municipal engineering services, takes matters of environmental protection seriously—on and off the clock. So it should come as no surprise that Rogers and his colleagues take year-round advantage of their Pine Bush office location. During lunchtime, and before or after work, you’ll find Delaware Engineering employees walking, jogging, snowshoeing and cross-county skiing the Pine Bush’s nearly 18 miles of marked, multiple-use trails. Rogers says he keeps his snowshoes ready and waiting behind his office door.


The Delaware Engineering team also enjoys eating lunch and barbequing on their patio, which overlooks the Pine Bush Preserve. And its employees make sure to keep their bird feeders filled—a detail that doesn’t go unnoticed by many of the preserve’s more than 90 bird species. (The Albany Pine Bush is a designated New York State Bird Conservation Area.)


The firm’s manager of corporate operations, John Brust, even serves on the Pine Bush Commission, a public/private partnership that works with landowners and municipal, state, federal and others to protect, restore and manage the Albany Pine Bush’s natural and cultural resources.


But Rogers is quick to point out that his company’s Pine Bush office location suits them for more reasons than proximity to the Pine Bush alone. “There’s more to this location than just heading out and hitting the trails,” says Rogers.


Since moving into 28 Madison Avenue Extension in 1998, Delaware Engineering has grown from an office of 10 people to one with more than 50 professionals spread throughout their Albany, Oneonta, and Walton, New York office locations. Rogers said The Anderson Group ensured that their Albany office space was “move-in ready” so the growing firm could hit the ground running. He said The Anderson Group was also flexible and responsive to their space needs, enabling Delaware Engineering to expand its space as the company itself expanded.


And although some companies prefer to be located on busy, heavily trafficked corridors, Rogers said that he and his colleagues are happy to be somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle.


“We like that we’re not located right in the middle of downtown or on a busy road. We have lots of parking right outside our door, and we’re close enough to Western Avenue, Central Avenue, and Washington Avenue Extension that we can get where we need to go quickly and easily,” Rogers says. “We serve a lot of surrounding communities, including the Towns of Guilderland, Bethlehem, and Colonie, so our location is perfect for accessing our client base.”


As for the company’s long-term plans, Rogers says they have no intention of leaving their Pine Bush location anytime soon.


“The Anderson Group provides us with a great property, and they are very responsive to all of our needs, which is extremely important to us,” Rogers says. “They don’t mess around, and they keep this place in great shape.”
