Civiltec Engineering has completed a pro bono survey and design services renovation project with The Developmental Enrichment Center of Arizona (DEC). DEC provides services to the developmentally disabled population in the greater Phoenix area, and has been doing so for the last eleven years.

Civiltec’s work on the project entailed transforming an older bed-and-breakfast establishment into a vocational training center for DEC that will be known as Olivete Place. Civiltec provided the survey work needed to create the site base plans to lay the groundwork for other participating disciplines. In addition, Civiltec designed a new fire pipe connection to the City water system for a fire sprinkler system within the building.

Many leaders from Civiltec’s Arizona offices were involved in the project. Ben Tilman and Jesse Tilman of Civiltec’s Prescott office provided the survey work, while Peoria employees Chris Dusza designed the fire line connection, Rita Flores completed the autocad drawing work, and Sky Younger provided some additional insight and direction.

Developmental Enrichment Centers is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that greatly appreciates donations and volunteer services to assist their mission of providing valuable services that bring independence and confidence to the lives of those they serve. Volunteer efforts, like that of Civiltec, allow DEC to operate and expand more effectively while devoting their resources to the important services they provide..Principal Electrical Engineer, Sky Younger, serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for DEC.
