We call ourselves CEC Chicago, but we’re really located in the western suburbs. The office began operations in January 2001 with a portfolio of environmental work from Fruit of the Loom. 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. We also perform emergency response support (e.g., emergencies due to spills, tank leaks) for environmental clients.
We were the first CEC office to establish a field services group for the waste industry!
Our office has grown substantially in recent years, so we hold office outings to facilitate team bonding, including a holiday party at John Hock’s house, an afternoon at the Arlington Park race track, an afternoon at the Joliet Autobahn, and a Christmas tree-decorating event at the Brookfield Zoo. Everyone in the office is friendly and welcoming, and we work as a team with a “can-do” attitude. The vibe is relaxed yet professional.
We participate in the “Letters to Santa” program, which is a holiday donation program led by the Chicago Sun-Times that benefits the underprivileged of the Chicago Public School system. We also like to participate in the annual DuPage County River Sweep, during which volunteers help pick up debris in and along the branches of the DuPage River and restore nearby land to its natural state. In addition, many of our employees are active in their own charitable activities.
