Investor Spotlight: Civil Engineering Consultants

From the roads we drive on, the schools our children attend, to the water we drink from the tap in our home, were made possible by the design and planning of civil engineers, much like the ones at Civil Engineering Consultants (CEC).

Since 1983, CEC has prioritized making a positive difference and improving quality of life for the great state of Texas. Their 130 employees specialize in a wide variety of professional civil engineering and surveying services, catering to both public and private projects. CEC’s team builds strong, long-lasting relationships with clients in San Antonio, where their headquarters is located.

Since inception, founder Don Durden recognized San Antonio’s potential for growth due to a combination of strong municipal leadership, effective agency coordination between the City, County, State, and utility owners, military presence, tourism, and proximity to Mexico and major coastal ports. Today, CEC has locations in Laredo and College Station, Texas that provide the same customer service and quality of life promotion as their HQ in San Antonio.

If you have visited Sea World San Antonio, you’ve seen the design and planning of CEC’s engineers first-hand. This contribution to the city’s tourism industry has helped attract visitors and entertain locals. The civil engineering firm prides itself on the mark they have left so far in San Antonio, because well, they are true San Antonians.

CEC President, Garland Galm, had this to say about the company’s close connection to San Antonio: “We have over 15 graduates from UTSA who are productive employees raising their families in and around San Antonio. Most of our staff is either from San Antonio or have lived here for several decades. We continue to add value to the community through our work on roadways, utilities, schools, universities, and infrastructure to improve people’s quality of life. We invest in the same things we work on for the betterment of the community.”
