Welcome to the very first Arizona edition of the quarterly  Civiltec  Engineering newsletter!

The work we do is so much about community - building, growing, and supporting the people of Arizona. In celebration of that fact, we have designed our new company newsletter to reach out to you, our community, and share the news of projects we are excited to be working on. Civiltec will be at the AZ Water Association 88th Annual Conference in Arizona next week. If you are there, be sure to say hello! We hope you enjoy catching up, and if it's been a while, drop us a line. We would love to hear your news as well.

Arizona Services

Here at Civiltec, our team proudly excels in diverse and complementary areas of expertise. Our services can be executed individually, or combined to address the complex needs of multi-faceted projects, and with two offices in Arizona, we are well positioned to respond quickly to the needs of our clients. As our organization continues to grow, so does our talented pool of engineers. At any given time, you will find the Civiltec team members focused on one of our many service lines, including:


Civil Engineering - Civiltec has extensive experience with street reconstruction, easement acquisitions, grading and drainage plans, initial engineering assessments and CIP prioritizations for public works infrastructure, structural assessments, and site improvement plans.


Water Engineering - In a state like Arizona, where effective water management is so critical to municipal operations, Civiltec excels at designing and constructing pump stations, reservoirs, wells, transmission systems and distribution pipelines. Compiling comprehensive Water Master Plans to help organizations plan for the future is also an important part of the water engineering work we do.


Wastewater Engineering - As part of our comprehensive water management services, Civiltec embraces state-of-the-art wastewater treatment technology, plans wastewater infrastructure and designs wastewater facilities.


Drainage Engineering - Quality flood prevention not only saves property, it saves lives. Civiltec understands the unique Arizona landscape and helps to keep our communities safe through channel and drainage structures, hydrology studies, box culverts, and SWPPPs.


Transportation Engineering - From distant desert roads to busy downtown overpasses, Civiltec has a wealth of experience working with ADOT infrastructure, roadway realignments, airport visual aids, and turning movement studies.


Construction Management - Big projects require expert management. The Civiltec team can guide communities through roadway construction, airport improvements, transit station development and much more, ensuring as little disruption as possible.


Surveying - Successful projects start with careful surveys, including construction staking, topographic surveys, aerial surveys, legal descriptions, and ALTA surveys. Civiltec does it all.

Whether your organization needs a new pump station,  a Water Master Plan, a drainage study to assess and evaluate long-term infrastructure, or one of our many other services, Civiltec is here to help.


Thank you for being a part of  Civiltec's community. We couldn't be prouder of the work we do and people we do it with.

Chris Dusza to Manage Arizona Offices

Beginning with the addition of Civiltec's new partner, Shem Hawes, at the end of last year, there have been some recent changes here at Civiltec, in service of the organization's long-term leadership transition planning.


Richard Shroads, who founded the company in 1986 and has long been the lead in the Prescott office, is stepping into a Founder's role for the organization. As Founder, Rick will be transitioning into more of an advisory role for the firm. Chris Dusza, Vice President of Civiltec and manager of the Peoria office is expanding his role to oversee all of the company's Arizona operations.


Chris Dusza and Civiltec President W. David Byrum share a vision for the company that outlives any one individual. Working with Mr. Shroads and Mr. Hawes the team is embracing change to build a more unified organization with improved internal communication technologies to provide the best customer service in the southwest.


In terms of what these changes mean for Mr. Dusza specifically, he will be gradually transitioning off of specific project engineering and into a more managerial role.
