Spong has over 40 years of experience in Delaware and Maryland, and has been responsible for completing approximately 1,600 projects focused on land, site and park planning, and landscape enhancement. His extensive experience includes the design and construction of green roofs, wetland mitigation and man-made wetlands for stormwater management. His notable projects include 22 phases of the Mispillion Greenway Riverwalk, Milford; Oyster House Park in Seaford; Grove Park Canal Dock at Rehoboth Beach; and Bethany Beach Nature Center & Conservation Greenway.
Sawicki has 27 years of experience in landscape architecture and has carried out projects from the design of site master plans to the production of documentation and construction specifications. She has experience in preparing forest delineation and conservation plans, wetland delineation and restoration plans, and green stormwater management plans. With a solid background in horticulture, Sawicki is adept at designing sustainable native gardens and landscapes. She lives in her family home on the shores of Chesapeake Bay in Tolchester, Maryland. She frequently works with local elementary school students on environmental restoration, STEM, and outdoor arts projects.
Spong and Sawicki will be based in the mid-Atlantic region of Duffield, but will focus on growing landscape architectural services across the entire NECS platform, which currently includes leading environmental, energy, infrastructure companies, hydraulic and civil Duffield Associates LLC, Hull and Associates LLC, HSW Consulting LLC and GeoInsight Inc.
