About CEC Houston
CEC Houston was established in April 2019 with the hiring of Harold Barber, a native Houstonian. The office specializes in the solid waste and oil & gas market sectors with experience in permitting and compliance work with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Texas Railroad Commission. In addition to our primary practice areas, we also offer geotechnical engineering services and landfill gas operations and maintenance (O&M) services. In August 2021, we moved into a new, expanded office space in Houston.
