On November 1, 1981, a small start-up called Allee King Rosen & Fleming opened for business in a loft on West 25th Street in Manhattan. As one of a very few companies specializing in environmental impact statements, the firm (now AKRF) quickly established itself as a leader in the field.
As the environmental review process expanded in the 1980s and 1990s, requiring more rigorous evaluation in a broader range of technical areas, AKRF expanded with it. AKRF’s staff increased to include specialists in all the technical areas required under the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA), as well as evolving new practice areas.
Over the years, AKRF has expanded from its New York City office and opened regional offices in the Hudson Valley, Long Island, Baltimore/Washington, and New Jersey. These offices offer the firm’s full range of environmental, planning, and engineering services while meeting the special needs of their local markets.
Thanks to the talent and commitment of our staff, AKRF has grown into a highly respected multi-disciplinary firm with five offices. All of our practice areas and offices are unified by the firm’s unmatched expertise in federal, state, and local environmental regulations, our strategic problem-solving ability, and our commitment to client satisfaction.
