Randy is responsible for oversight of the firm’s operations, and provides key insight for the development of many of the planning projects currently underway in the office.  He has over thirty eight years of diverse experience in the analysis of both vacant and developed property, master planning, site design and environmental permitting for residential, retail, commercial and industrial projects.

Randy’s current and past work includes projects of various scales and complexity.  He worked with the owners of a 160± acre property in Northborough, MA to prepare the master plan for the development of Northborough Crossing, a new retail and lifestyle center. The multi-building program includes over 600,000 square feet of new retail and restaurant space, and also accommodates 350 units of multi-family housing being developed under the State affordable housing program, MGL Chapter 40B. He was also instrumental in preparing the initial site planning studies, design plans, and environmental permit applications for Bay State Commons, a brownfields redevelopment project on 55± acres in the downtown center of Westborough, MA. The new “open air” mixed-use center includes over 250,000 sf of retail space and a 50 unit, 4-story apartment building. Some of the primary development challenges include protection of an existing impermeable cap over several existing landfills located beneath the building footprint, development of a functional traffic solution that maintains existing capacity on East Main Street, and development of an aesthetically pleasing site layout that includes a new two-acre public park.

Randy has previously provided master planning services to a substantial development group that required analysis of eight separate sites within the I-495 belt for a specialized recreational program, and he has also provided full site design strategies for numeroussingle-family, multi-family, and mixed-use projects throughout the State.

Randy’s depth of experience is also demonstrated by the numerous residential projects on which he has provided site planning, engineering design and permitting services.  These projects cover a significant range of clientele and properties, and include the master planning of high end oceanfront estate lots on the Coast of Rhode Island and the North Shore of Massachusetts; subdivision planning for 500+ acre tracts of land in Central Massachusetts; numerous market rate multi-family projects; and the planning and design of affordable housing projects under various state and federal programs.  In each case, a common objective was to maximize the lot/unit value by incorporating creative and affordable site planning methodologies.

Randy is an avid snowboarder in the winter months, and spends as much time as possible in the summer with family and friends at the beach.
