CP&Y was established in 1980 with a vision to provide safe and reliable environmental services to clients and their communities; through the firm’s success, we have since enjoyed significant growth, and over just the last five years, increased our team of 100 Employee-Owners to one 400+ Partners across five states. CP&Y has evolved from a Texas-based engineering firm, to a rapidly growing, multidisciplinary and multi-state engineering, surveying, construction, and architectural consulting firm.
We’re thrilled for J.J.’s leadership through a new chapter of our history. We invite you to join us in celebration of our 40th Anniversary on October 1st. We look forward to commemorating this important milestone and honoring the Employee-Owners so pivotal to our growth and without whom, such advancement would not have been possible.
