CESO's Story

Civil Engineers of Southwest Ohio, Inc. (CESO), an Ohio S-Corporation established in December 1987, was formed by a small group of professionals with a vision of providing civil engineering and surveying services to businesses and municipalities in Dayton, Ohio and surrounding areas. Through the years, the company has expanded its services and grown in sales volume, number of staff, and locations, with full service offices in Akron, Columbus, and Dayton, Ohio; Lansing, Michigan; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; St. Marys, West Virginia; Nashville, Tennessee; Orlando, Florida; and Bentonville, Arkansas, and several more planned for the near future.

Today CESO is a comprehensive engineering, architectural, survey, construction management, and environmental firm providing clients with multi-disciplined, engineering, architectural, and planning services. From initial concepts through project completion, our service groups have offered our clients, both large and small, with turnkey consulting services.  Because our teams are supported with an internal construction services division, not only are we able to offer design and consulting services, but total program management from initial planning stages through project completion.  By offering a single source of responsibility, we have developed a reputation in the consulting field as professionals that follow a program approach to project development.

From a staff of three in 1987 to a diversified firm of over 100 design and construction professionals today, we believe our growth and success is directly related to the quality and dedication of our staff.  CESO staff prides itself on quality of education, diversity of experience and background, and the ability to work with people and projects throughout the lower 48 states.  While we thrive on challenge and look forward to every new project, it is our high repeat client base that truly demonstrates our ability to successfully fulfill our clients’ needs.  Whether we are providing a small consulting service or designing and sourcing a large multi-disciplined program, CESO’s experience, dedication, and commitment to quality always lead to success.
