History

History

In 1984, Dr. Paul Rizzo was presented with an opportunity to take his passion for civil engineering and create a firm focused on providing quality engineering and consulting services.

As the firm grew partner by partner, the breadth of services offered expanded to encompass each of their individual talents.  Decades later the firm has grown substantially in both size and scope of business, yet has remained focused on sustaining close relationships with clients.  Today RIZZO has 15 partners, and Dr. Rizzo continues to serve as both the President and Chairman of the Board.

RIZZO’s long-term success stems from our ability and accomplishment in recognizing talent, especially young engineers and scientists with skills that could benefit a particular project or service.   We maintain a strong tradition of pairing young engineers and scientists with senior-level personnel who serve as mentors. This blending of new and traditional practices has benefited the company and our clients as the industry has evolved over the years.

Numerous industry segments have undergone dramatic changes during the company's history.  The services provided at RIZZO have always mirrored these changes, while continually adapting to meet the needs of our clients.  RIZZO's core services remain in the Power Generation, Water Resources, and Mining markets around the world.  Our breadth of expertise in the civil engineering and earth sciences fields allows us to maintain a strong global presence.

As we continue to grow, we have taken our 30th Anniversary as an opportunity to reengineer our logo and streamline the company
name to better align with how we are recognized in the industry. We feel that this new identity proudly reflects our company as a whole and emphasizes our
commitment to the industry. Although our look has changed, the company's core remains intact, dedicated to the success of our clients and their projects. We
are pleased to introduce our new corporate brand, including a new logo and website. The rebranding reflects the many recent changes the company has
undergone as well as its vision for the future.
