Excellence From The Ground Up

Company News

For 50 years, it has been the quality of our people that defines the DOWL difference.

Our staff of dedicated professionals consistently exceed our clients' expectations and have enabled us to develop into one of the West's leading planning, surveying, civil/transportation, and environmental services firms.

Today, we offer a wide range of engineering services to public and private clients. From the Arctic Ocean to the Rio Grande, we are ready to handle any challenge.

  • OBEC and DOWL have merged to offer more services and expertise to better serve you. The merged firm will include the same great people you know and trust, but now with more diverse capabilities and increased capacity. OBEC has been serving the Pacific Northwest with bridge engineering and other professional services since 1966. DOWL has continually worked to bring an expanded suite of engineering and professional services to the West since 1962. Our paths have merged, and we look forward to introducing you to our friends.
