Our Story

Established in 2000 as a home office by Chris Eller, Civil Design Concepts, P.A. has grown steadily. In 2008 CDC merged with Patrick Bradshaw of Bradshaw Engineering, combining strengths and propelling the company to new heights. Two additional partners, Chris Day and Jesse Gardner, joined the team to strengthen our firm’s capabilities and leadership. In 2019, the company transitioned to an Employee Owned Company through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), empowering its dedicated employees. With this transformative journey, Civil Design Concepts has solidified its position as an industry leader known for building relationships, pushing to add value, solving problems, and having a commitment to excellence in civil engineering and site design services.
