It was more than 50 years ago when Lewis J. McCoy, PE said, “Everyone deserves clean water.” His passion, his experience, and his engineering expertise were the foundation of the early years of Spotts, Stevens, and McCoy (SSM).

Since then, the firm has continued to lead the charge in making the world a better place today and for future generations by helping clients plan, design, build, operate, and protect their infrastructure, assets, and resources. From ensuring everyone has clean water, to preparing for a future with clean energy. From supporting municipalities and their infrastructure to ensuring business and industry facilities operate efficiently.

In a general sense, Spotts, Stevens, and McCoy is an engineering firm in the business of problem-solving.

Expertise, experience, and passion aren’t the only things that have carried this regional multi-disciplinary engineering, environmental, and surveying firm throughout the years. It’s family. McCoy’s Son, Patrick M. McCoy, PE, who serves as the company’s Executive Vice President, and CEO Brian R. Kelly are the firm owners who together make SSM a family-owned and operated firm.

Patrick, a long-term resident of West Chester Borough, knew that expanding services to the Chester County region and growing the firm’s divisions to include Energy and Sustainability Services were necessary steps in not only expanding the firm’s footprint, but also extending its passions.

“Every day at SSM, we look for new ways to grow our footprint, expand our services, increase our capacity, and escalate our opportunities to make an impact on the world,” said Patrick. “I am looking forward to expanding relationships in our newest office community as well as through our Practical Energy Solutions division, led by its founder Paul Spiegel.”

SSM clients range from large, regional, and national companies in the manufacturing, processing, and high-tech sectors to municipalities and authorities. And their work touches everyday life – from the water we drink, to the air we breathe, to the buildings and communities where we live, work, and play.

“Simply put: What we do best is what you don’t.” said Kelly. “We love to create solutions. We love to help. We believe the work we do is important, and our clients’ visions are important because our purpose is to help our clients stick to theirs.”

SSM offers:

  • Building Engineering
  • Site Planning and Design
  • Infrastructure Planning, Engineering, and Design
  • Land and Building Survey and Data Capture
  • Energy and Sustainability Services
  • Water and Wastewater Planning, Engineering, and Design
  • Environmental Services

SSM traces its history back to 1932 when Walter Spotts opened an engineering and surveying practice. In 1970, Spotts’s practice was acquired by the incorporated business Stevens and McCoy, opened by Lewis McCoy Sr. Thus, SSM was born.

Today, SSM blends second-generation entrepreneurial thinking with traditional values – innovation, built on a solid foundation. Additional offices are located in Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, and Reading.

“We believe in improving the quality of life for our clients, our employees, and for all of the people touched by the work that we do,” said Kelly.
