About CEC Chicago
CEC Chicago began operations in 2001 with a portfolio of environmental work. In the following years, we began to build municipal solid waste work; by 2017, our environmental group and our waste group were of equally large size. That same year, we added air quality services and bolstered our civil engineering capabilities. We added a survey practice in 2018. Our acquisition of Roake and Associates, Inc. in December 2018 added to our civil engineering and surveying capabilities and dramatically increased our real estate/land development client network.
