West Nyack, N.Y.-headquartered McLaren Engineering Group celebrated its 40th anniversary at the end of March. The firm, which has completed more than 14,000 projects and has more than 200 employees in 10 offices, opened in 1977.

On March 28, the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter presented Malcolm G. McLaren with a proclamation recognizing the firm’s accomplishments, including bridges, structures and entertainment venues.

“McLaren is a true innovator,” the proclamation states. “They pioneered the concept of professional engineer diving in the 1970s, incorporating new materials into designs, pushing the envelope for performance and entertainment venues, and helping to create the ferry transit system in New York Harbor.”
