The Pape-Dawson Family

As a 30+ year old firm not looking to sell, joining the Pape-Dawson family of companies was a monumental decision for Costello. Pape-Dawson offered such an intriguing mix of cultural fit, proven integrity, and outstanding opportunity that we had to consider it. Since making the decision to join Pape-Dawson, I can honestly say that the leadership team stands behind what they say and have treated everyone on our team like valued work family. I’m excited to see what the future holds for us.

Dustin O'Neal, P.E.

CEO, Costello

Not only were we able to strengthen our capabilities and commitments, but we also felt supported and validated in our dedication to service, client, and community. We knew it was going to be a good fit from the very first meeting.
