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 often come and go, and it takes an exceptional 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. We have a history to be proud of, and we're excited about the future.
