Perry Frenzel brings over thirty years of experience in the fields of engineering, planning and construction from both the public and the private sectors. He has had the unique opportunity to be deeply involved in the development process from three perspectives: first as the Chief Engineer for the regional zoning and planning authority charged with guiding and overseeing the orderly development of New Jersey’s Hackensack Meadowlands, then as a civil engineering and planning consultant to many of the region’s property owners, and as the Senior Vice President of Engineering and Development for one of the State’s largest real estate developers.

In 2009, Perry founded PNJ/FRENZEL Associates, LLC, focusing on development planning, site design and regulatory matters.  In his alliance with the architectural planning firm Michaels & Waldrom Associates, PNJ/FRENZEL – Michaels & Waldron offers the client a complete ‘soup-to-nuts’ array of design, development and construction services, literally with the capability of taking projects from concept through construction.
