A legacy to be proud of:
The civil and environmental engineering industry is ever changing. The same goes for the companies within that industry as well. Firms come and go quite often, and it takes a special kind of company to withstand worldwide economic challenges, escalating construction costs, and ever-changing regulatory demands to stay in business for nearly a century. WK Dickson opened its doors during the Great Depression of 1929 and has persevered and thrived over the decades. Read our story by clicking the link below.
