Delta’s Survey and Mapping group was recognized with three awards in the mapping competition held at the recent 2016 HxGN Live Conference held in Anaheim, CA. The conference is organized by Hexagon AB, a global provider of design, measurement, and visualization technologies. This year’s conference was held from June 12 through June 15 and was attended by more than 3,000 industry professionals.
Delta won two first place awards and one second place award for projects that provided baseline mapping for a historic restoration of a Catskills luxury resort, existing conditions data for the structural assessment of a municipal auditorium, and engineering data for the upgrade of a shredding motor that is the heart of a New York State recycling operation. All of the Delta projects featured creative uses of high definition laser scanning technology to quickly generate comprehensive field data sets that were used for analysis, mapping, and modeling of the facilities.

Delta Engineers, Architects, & Land Surveyors, PC acquired OKKS Studios, Inc.
December 4, 2014

Delta Engineers, Architects, & Land Surveyors, P.C. (Delta) acquired OKKS Studios, Inc. (OKKS), a 13 person architectural design firm located in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Founded in 1970 as Oudens + Knoop Architects, P.C., OKKS specializes in the areas of health care, government, higher education, technology, security planning, and “class A” office buildings. They have worked across the United States and internationally, having completed projects in more than 80 countries. OKKS Studios, Inc. will continue to operate from their Maryland office as a subsidiary of Delta.

President and CEO of Delta, Anthony R. Paniccia, PE, JD was introduced to OKKS principals Tom O. Sachs, AIA, ASHE and Gregory S. Knoop, AIA, LEED AP in early 2014. Mr. Paniccia said it was apparent that the two firms would be a good fit. OKKS is an architectural firm and while Delta has architects on staff, they are largely an engineering firm. This acquisition allows Delta to expand the services they can provide immediately and to better serve their existing clients because of the depth of their architectural talent.

OKKS brings a significant amount of experience to our company in areas where we are well positioned to grow. “Expanding our architectural group allows us to be a big player in all markets. We are excited about this acquisition as it will assist us to continue to grow this company,” said Mr. Paniccia.

Delta occupies a 38,000 square foot, LEED Gold, office in Endwell, NY and has an additional office location in Vernon, NY. Since Mr. Paniccia became President and CEO in 2006, Delta has steadily increased its capabilities and employee count. Delta now employs 118 people total, and is the 30th largest employer in Broome County. With the OKKS addition, Delta now has an additional 7 registered architects, 2 junior architects, and 1 interior designer to the Delta staff. Delta’s architectural group now has 10 registered architects and 8 junior architects in total.

Delta Engineers, Architects, & Land Surveyors, P.C. (Delta), an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, has provided a wide range of architectural, engineering, and land surveying services to clients throughout the United States since 1976.
