Matrix New World Engineering is expanding its services with the introduction of Federal Programs to the Florham Park-based firm’s services roster.
On March 10, Matrix announced Matthew Ludwig as director of federal services and Karen Ashton as federal services program manager for the segment; the pair will grow services offered, while their ability to handle multiple different projects is increased.
“Our Federal Programs division extends Matrix’s range in providing engineering solutions to a diverse set of new clients. We look forward to delivering resolutions to larger scale projects,” Matrix President Jayne Warne said in a prepared statement.
According to Matrix, the firm has experience working on projects ranging from military installations to civil works initiatives throughout the country. While working on a project, its engineers and scientists are involved from inception and throughout, providing preliminary environmental and hazardous materials studies; federal, state and local environmental compliance analyses and documentation; and regulatory permitting, beginning with initial planning stages for feasibility studies, through conceptual design, final design and construction; engineers also provide multi-disciplinary design services and field oversight, the company said.
Prior to joining Matrix last fall, Ludwig spent 14 years with the US Army Corps of Engineers, according to his LinkedIn page. In the New York District, Matrix said he ultimately reached the rank of supervisory chief of the construction division. Under his guidance, USACE programs have placed hundreds of millions of dollars into construction and engineering.
Ludwig specializes in programs related to geotechnical and remediation projects, and vertical construction.
Ashton also came to Matrix from USACE, having spent 15 years there, according to her LinkedIn, and holding leadership positions in both construction and civil works planning. According to Matrix, construction projects under her purview have placed hundreds of millions of dollars annually into the construction and engineering industries.
“Our diverse abilities enable our involvement in projects of all complexities and sizes, including resiliency improvements, ADA compliance, capacity and infrastructure improvements, modernization, and design of new facilities,” Ashton said.
