CPL Poughkeepsie — Interconnection that Elevates Communities

Nestled comfortably in the heart of the Mid-Hudson Valley, CPL Poughkeepsie is an inviting workspace teeming with talented creative professionals.

The office’s expansive interior reflects the firm’s identity as a regional design giant with deep blue accent walls, modern lighting fixtures, and contemporary furnishings that boost morale and spark design inspiration on all levels. Because collaboration is paramount in facilitating project teams’ success, the sleek kitchen and dining area—designed by in-house architects, engineers, and interior designers—doubles as a sizeable venue for parties and impromptu visioning sessions, encouraging camaraderie across disciplines.

Adjacent to Route 9 and highly accessible to CPL personnel and external business partners alike, the office is minutes from the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall, the Mid-Hudson Civic Center, and some of the area’s most popular restaurants (including Texas RoadhouseEl Toro Loco, and the Dutchess Diner), providing coworkers with a myriad of fun places to hang out after work.

“Engaging team relationships make up the heart and soul of CPL Poughkeepsie,” said Planner Meagen Stone. “We’ve cultivated a warm, cooperative atmosphere where everyone feels welcomed, supported and truly appreciated.”

Whether they’re donning ugly Christmas sweaters, competing in annual Chili Cookoffs, sharing tacos on Cinco de Mayo or meeting up at the Hudson House Distillery, the office nurtures enduring bonds that, when paired with their sharp design sense, have the power to transform communities for the better.

“Our union is our strength,” explained Principal Timothy Moot, PG. “Drawing from the collective wisdom of our cross-disciplinary team, we engineer progressive solutions that have had profound impacts on our clients.”

Reflective of their interest in and aptitude for multifaceted A/E design, the team has led and contributed to a wide range of projects throughout Dutchess, Orange, Westchester, Putnam, Ulster, and Rockland Counties and beyond.

Recent projects include a sewer and water and sewer feasibility study for the Town of Cortlandt, NY; structural and site improvements—combined with a green infrastructure component—for Dietz Stadium in Kingston, NY; various water and sewer improvement projects as well as highway garage alterations for the Town of Wappinger, NY; planning board review services for a multitude of Towns, including East Fishkill, NY and Rhinebeck, NY; a $98M A/E overhaul of the Poughkeepsie City School District; and comprehensive upgrades for the Albany Water Board’s water supply system in Feura Bush, NY.

“Our projects are wide-ranging, involving everything from rehabilitating public water systems and town facilities, designing critical infrastructure, and reimagining museums, concert halls, and parks,” said Project Engineer Christian Moore, P.E. “We put a lot of effort and take great pride in our work, because it lays the foundation upon which everything else can be built, and makes it possible to shape entire communities.”

Passionate about stirring meaningful change through humanitarian action, the team also participates in charitable endeavors, donating supplies and contributing financially to relief initiatives spearheaded by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of CommerceAbilities First, the Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse (CPCA), and numerous other organizations.

“At the end of the day, we want to see our communities thrive, not just survive,” Moot said. “We’re eager to give back by promoting development, growth and success for all.”
