About CEC Knoxville
In 2014, CEC established operations in East Tennessee through the acquisition of Knoxville-based VISION Engineering & Development Services, Inc. After that, we quickly expanded our services to include environmental engineering, ecological services, and air testing. Our structural engineering group provides support to all of CEC’s offices, which gives us a unique connection to the corporate body. In December 2016, CEC Knoxville became the first private tenant in the University of Tennessee’s Innovation Campus and Research Park at Cherokee Farm.
