Octavio SolorzaCiviltec Engineering is proud to announce that Octavio Solorza, CPESC, QSD/P, is now a partner and stockholder of the company. The partnership agreement execution occurred on March 25, 2020, in the Monrovia, California office.

In addition to his new standing as a stockholder and owner of Civiltec, Octavio is a Senior Project Manager located in the Monrovia, California office. The firm was founded in 1986; Octavio joined the team on March 14, 1988. At the time, Civiltec was mostly focused on residential and commercial land development and surveying projects. Octavio began steadily expanding his portfolio to include site improvement design for educational facilities, religious facilities, and water system facilities, as well as offsite public works improvement projects. During his time at Civiltec, Octavio has been the project manager and designer for municipal engineering, land development, and federal design-build projects throughout Southern California. Project locations have ranged from the cities of Chula Vista, Oceanside, Carlsbad and Ramona in San Diego County, to the City of Brisbane in San Mateo County. Other locations have included a variety of cities and unincorporated areas in Los Angeles County, as well as Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, Kern, Santa Clara and Fresno Counties.

Octavio initially joined Civiltec as a designer and was later promoted to Senior Project Manager and Associate of the firm as part of the company’s long-term Leadership and Ownership Transition Plan, which was originally enacted in 2007. Octavio’s transition into an ownership role has long been planned within the framework of the organization.

Civiltec is a legacy firm with a focus on internal leadership and ownership transition. We could not be more pleased to see our careful planning come to fruition. We have been very fortunate to have so many talented and dedicated people join our team over the years. Additional Associates are already in place and future leaders of the firm are in training.
