HCE is a fully integrated design-build firm, able to provide turnkey solutions to infrastructure challenges.  The water/wastewater sector has unique features that are central to the consideration of best practices in the procurement, contracting and execution of any design-build project, and HCE is familiar in these areas.  We are both licensed engineers and contractors experienced in traditional fixed price design-build as well as progressive design-build.

Small projects can be well-suited for the design-build project delivery method, however HCE is also capable of larger design-build projects with our team of specialty subcontractors.  The design-build project delivery method is well-suited for mitigating current market challenges such as supply chain issues and often provides the best value for our clients. HCE is a member of the Design-Build Institute of America.


Some of HCE’s recently completed design-build projects include:

  • Wastewater repump station structural rehabilitation
  • Emergency force main replacement
  • Potable water repump station improvements
  • Wastewater treatment plant safety improvements
  • Aeration basin and clarifier structural rehabilitation
  • Specialty coatings projects
  • Submersible lift station rehabilitation
  • Reclaimed water and potable water meter stations
