Sands Decker has an environment that encourages collaboration between our principals, managers, and staff. We encourage our staff to work as a team to focus on the client’s needs, not the bottom line. Our staff collaborate and solve problems together, and as a result, it fosters a strong sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

- Scott Sands, P.E. President

As a member of the Sands Decker team since 2003, I have had the opportunity to work on projects ranging from an outdoor privy at a local State Park to a 1.2 MGD Waste Water Treatment Facility in the Bahamas and just about everything in between. Each team member is exposed to all aspects of every size and type of project we do, from surveying through to construction. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of clients and professionals…developers, school districts, municipalities and regulatory agencies of all sizes, architects, structural and mechanical engineers. Sands Decker has created a dynamic work environment where every day brings a new challenge.

- Loretta Armentrout, Project Manager

In my 20 years at Sands Decker, I've found it to be a great place to work because of many factors, but mainly the casual, relaxed atmosphere that a small company offers. It’s nice to be on a team with long time co-workers that have become like family over the years.

- Kathy Zalmon, Administrative/Accounting

After working for large corporate design firms for over a decade, it’s refreshing to truly care for our clients, rather than measure success by the bottom line.

- Mark Antonetz, P.E., Principal

I like the atmosphere of the company over the 25 years I’ve been here. I feel like I work with family.

- Rick Cox, Project Manager

The people of this company are its greatest strength. We have a highly collaborative atmosphere and each person is willing to chip in and help each other. With a broad range of experience, Sands Decker offers a team approach to solving problems.

- Ben Adams, P.S., E.I., Project Engineer

Over the past fifteen plus years I have consulted with Sands Decker on many projects. Now, I am part of the Sands Decker Team.

- Theresa Kanavel, Senior Project Manager

My experience at Sands Decker has been nothing but positive. The other firms that I have worked at did not allow me excel as a CAD tech as much as Sands Decker has allowed. The office is full of people with great experience who are also very happy to teach.

- Scott Miller, Survey Technician

I am truly grateful to work for such a great company! I really appreciate the flexibility you have allowed me in order to pursue my degree in civil engineering and most recently during COVID.

- Mackenzie Yoke, Design Technician
