President's Message


Since its founding in 1945, DEC has built a solid reputation as a premier civil engineering firm with expertise in water resources, water and wastewater infrastructure, transportation, land development, program management and much more. 


We have a distinguished history of developing innovative and sustainable projects that positively shape Texas communities. Through the decades, we’ve partnered to provide safe water and wastewater systems, address subsidence, manage floodplains, and identify ways to fund major mass transit and highway projects. 


We build strong, long-term client relationships by offering solutions and helping to get things done. We strive to look at projects from our clients’ perspectives, do excellent work, give them good value and help them accomplish their goals.  


As we look to the future, we’re building an even stronger company rooted in a culture of trust, respect and excellence. Our diverse and inclusive employee-owned company is managed transparently by an Executive Committee with broad experience and expertise. 


Everyone at DEC is committed to delivering engineering excellence and realizing our vision to be the engineering company of choice, both for clients and employees.
