A trusted resource in the industry, Vitolano has managed the site planning, engineering design, permitting, and construction of a wide variety of commercial, retail, residential, and institutional development projects throughout New York. He has extensive knowledge of the permitting process and relationships with agencies such as NYC Departments of Transportation, Environmental Protection, and City Planning, as well as the New York State DEC. His expertise includes urban redevelopment, master planning, utility infrastructure, site assessments, waterfront sites, and sustainable stormwater designs.

“Jeff Smith and Chris Vitolano are top performers and we are pleased to promote them to the Associate level at Langan,” said David T.
