DEC Celebrating 77 Years of Engineering Excellence

Making Texas Communities Better Since 1945

HOUSTON, Texas, March 17, 2022/PR Newswire/ -- DEC, a Texas-based civil engineering firm, is celebrating 77 years of serving public and private clients. Founded in 1945, DEC has designed and managed countless projects to make communities better and help clients succeed.

President and CEO Michel Maksoud said, “As one of the oldest civil engineering firms in Texas, we’re incredibly proud of the positive impacts our work has had to make Texas a great place to live and work.

“We team with clients and others to find innovative solutions. Through the decades, we’ve partnered to provide safe water and sewer systems, address subsidence, and identify ways to fund major mass transit and highway projects.”

A Legacy of Excellence

DEC engineers have worked on countless transportation projects of all sizes and scopes from the Hardy and Sam Houston tollways in the Houston region to smaller regional projects across Texas.

Through the decades, DEC has also helped shape residential growth in communities throughout Texas. Similarly, DEC’s hydraulic and hydrology engineers have made communities safer and more flood resilient.

Potable water providers have benefited from partnering with DEC to design and fund water delivery systems. As one example, DEC helped secure $957 million in Texas Water Development Board capital project funding for the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (WHCRWA). One of the largest water supply programs in the region, DEC manages the $1.8 billion program in coordination with more than 120 municipal utility districts, cities and regulatory agencies.

Looking Forward

Building on this solid foundation, Maksoud said that DEC is positioned for continued growth with seven offices across Texas.

“We continue to strive to deliver engineering excellence and realize our vision to be the engineering company of choice, both for clients and employees,” Maksoud said.
