Do You Have An Engineering Project We Can Help With?

25 Years of Building Systems Excellence

Building systems are nothing without people—people to design them, people to build them, people to use them. This simple observation lies at the heart of Guth DeConzo. We approach our work with a level of personal attention and dedication that is nearly impossible to find elsewhere. It’s why one of our principals is hands-on with every project, why we maintain a continual presence on job sites, why we sit down with you after completion to identify areas for future improvement. It’s why we treat everyone with the utmost respect, from the client’s CEO to the site cleanup crew.  

Since our founding in 1991, this approach has delivered results for our firm and our clients. Over the years, some of the world’s largest organizations—Delta Airlines, Forbes, Honeywell, Pfizer, and others—have asked us to partner with them. We are experts in such uncompromising categories as airports and laboratories. In all, we have completed more than 5,000 successful projects, thanks to a team of professionals (many with 35-40 years’ experience) who look forward to coming to work every day to serve our clients.  

We are a staff of over 60 professionals with clients and projects in over 25 states and the Caribbean; designing, building and refining engineered solutions for a sustainable future.
