ORLANDO, Fla. – Drummond Carpenter marked its fifth anniversary this month, celebrating our rise from a two-person startup to one of Central Florida’s leading civil and environmental engineering firms thanks to the expertise of our team and the support of our clients and communities.
From our new corporate headquarters in Orlando and locations across the Midwest (Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania), we have led and consulted on more than 100 public and private projects nationwide since 2016 with our innovative approach to today’s most pressing environmental and engineering challenges.
Last year, Drummond Carpenter was recognized by the Orlando Business Journal as one of Orlando’s largest veteran-owned firms (by revenue) and by the University of South Florida as one of the “2020 USF Fast 56,” landing among the world’s top five fastest-growing USF alumni-owned businesses.
Once an ambitious startup, we have since grown from two long-time college friends to a dozen engineers, geologists and technical professionals. Today, our team is helping to improve Great Lakes’ water quality through green stormwater infrastructure, safely store nuclear-contaminated materials through our work with the Department of Energy, and preserve and protect Central Florida’s water resources through our collaborations with Orange County.
While the past five years have offered us outstanding opportunities to serve our clients and develop our brand, we are excited for the future as we expand into additional markets and service areas. In 2021, Drummond Carpenter is launching a new practice area focused on water and wastewater engineering to better serve our federal, municipal and utility clients.
Proud to be a service-disabled veteran-owned small business, we also believe in serving in our communities, partnering with non-profit organizations, and our downtown Orlando headquarters was chosen, in part, to allow our staff to walk, bike or take public transportation to work.
We continue to sponsor and participate in many collaborative, educational and professional development events around the country, sharing our work with the rest of the engineering and research communities and expanding our regional and national connections and knowledge base.
As we start a new year, we are filled with gratitude to continue providing high-quality and innovative services that improve the built and natural environment. Thank you to all who have been a part of this growing legacy!
