Here are a few words from our president:

"Sands Decker is successful because of the engineering expertise of our principals and staff. When you look deeper, it's also because we have an environment that encourages collaboration between our principals, managers and staff. Sands Decker has always encouraged our professionals and staff to work as a team to focus on the client’s needs, not on the bottom line; if we place the client’s best interest as the highest priority, the result will be satisfied clients, and in turn, a strong feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction for our employees. The company has experienced steady growth which results in increasing opportunities for our staff, one of many reasons the majority of our staff has been with Sands Decker for 10 years or longer. Our employees have expressed some of their thoughts in their own words below."

Scott Sands, P.E.

“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 / Design Tech IV

“Every project I am involved with here at Sands Decker offers a new challenge and gives me an opportunity to learn something new. I have been given the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects that allow me to utilize my skills and experience to meet design criteria and client needs. So much valuable information can be learned from being involved with a project from preliminary design through complete construction. It provides me with a great sense of accomplishment to witness the final result of a project I designed."

Jason Stevens
Project Manager / Design Tech IV

"Sands Decker is the third company I have worked for since graduating college in 2010. Shortly after starting here I realized that it was a different place to work. Instead of just working on smaller sections of projects and then repeating the process, I was pulled fully into the project from the ground up. Quickly projects became ‘my own’ to develop alongside the project managers and clients. Being so involved in the development of a project and it’s challenges has kept me from becoming pigeonholed into a single task and has accelerated my professional growth."

Brenton McCuskey, E.I.
Project Engineer

“In my 11 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

“I joined Sands Decker a short time ago, and staff here has been very professional and helpful to help me to learn about the this organization. So far I have been impressed with the number of projects for repeat clients and with a few new clients, which tells me that the company is providing high quality and useful services for clients. The most difficult task so far has been trying to keep up with the project workload and hire additional quality staff to support the workload. Which is a better problem to have than not having enough work and poor quality staff. I am looking forward to adding to the current survey staff to better support the demands of the project workload and provide professional survey services to additional clients. It has been enjoyable to be working with the capable people that are working at this company. And I like working on projects that are located in the communities that we are living and working in which effects all of our lives in a positive way."

Steve Newell, P.S.
Director of Surveying
