Geosyntec Partnership

Geosyntec is a consulting and engineering firm that works with private and public sector clients to address new ventures and complex problems involving our environment, natural resources, and civil infrastructure.

After developing a scope of work centered around a safe reopening, monitoring, containment, and contingencies for shutdown, Pratt formed a selection committee to review qualified environmental firms. The selection committee consisted of members of Pratt's senior staff, campus safety, facilities, health, and risk management teams. After narrowing down the qualified firms and conducting two rounds of interviews, Geosyntec was selected as Pratt’s COVID-19 planning partners. The committee believes Geosyntec's credentials and approach will help Pratt continue to reduce risk and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses.

In partnership with Pratt, Geosyntec will deliver a formal plan for reopening. Below is an overview of their process and deliverables. 

  • Conduct a gap assessment to identify and prioritize potential issues 

  • Prepare a post pandemic reopening plan for submittal to New York State Department of Health 

  • Implement monitoring plans in conjunction with Pratt

  • Develop and deploy COVID containment measures

  • Strategize and assist with shutdown measures

The details of Geosyntec findings and a detailed plan will be posted publicly on Pratt.edu for our community.
