Why BCC Engineering

Established in Miami in 1994, BCC Engineering has always questioned the status quo, which has enabled us to come up with innovative, best-in-class solutions for some of the largest and most complex engineering projects in the Southeast US and Puerto Rico.

Since 2006, when principals Jose Muñoz and Ariel Millan bought the company, we’ve grown rapidly, adding new offices in Tampa, Orlando, Georgia, Texas, and Puerto Rico. We’re known for our complete dedication to our clients and our ability to handle a wide range of projects.

BCC Engineering. Getting there just got easier. 

The BCC Story

How getting there got easier. It was the early 2000s, and getting transportation projects to go smoothly and successfully wasn’t easy. Even though design-bid-build was the way things had always been done, it typically resulted in check-the-box solutions that made past-due deadlines and cost overruns the norm. Some DOTs and municipalities were starting to dip their toes into design-build, but no one was truly delivering on the innovation the new approach promised.

That’s when two engineers decided to strike out on their own.  Jose and Ariel’s friendship was already almost two decades old. They’d first met in high school, selling shoes at the local mall, and years later worked together again at a global engineering firm. Together, they tripled the size of that team thanks to their out-of-the-box thinking and high-quality work. But after so much time designing for big companies, they grew tired of hearing “no can do” more often than not. What if there were a better way of doing design-build, they wondered – one that embraced creative ideas instead of shutting them down? So in 2006, they bought BCC Engineering – a small, local firm that had been doing great work in Miami since 1994 – and decided to put these ideas into practice.

In just a few short years, this approach had won them the biggest transportation design-build project in South Florida. In addition to bridges and highways, BCC was building a reputation for out-bidding the Goliaths of their industry based on ingenuity and creative problem-solving. During that time, the company grew rapidly, roughly doubling in size every two years.

Today, BCC Engineering is an award-winning firm with 350 employees. Those two high school friends are still at the helm. We’ve delivered over $4 billion in 100+ projects to date, but we still bring that relentless underdog energy to every single project. Along the way, we’ve partnered with other amazing firms to solve some of the toughest transportation challenges out there. Now, as we expand throughout the Southeast, we’re bringing our “more options, fewer surprises, and better outcomes” approach to new regions. That’s what it means to work with BCC. Getting there just got easier.

Leadership

In Memoriam

“Working hard just comes naturally to everyone here. Our culture of mutual respect breeds personal excellence. The end result for clients is delivering the best possible work, and never giving up until solutions are discovered. For me, that means paying attention to the details of the business to help steadfastly support both our clients and our staff.”

Sonia Martinez

Sonia’s five-year battle with cancer sadly ended in November 2016, but Sonia will forever be a part of BCC. When Sonia Martinez joined BCC Engineering in 2006, the staff consisted of a cadre of bright and ambitious engineers, a receptionist, and her – the sole administrator. As the firm has grown from that small group to a full-service firm, her role as Chief Financial Officer had also expanded. As one of the company’s earliest leaders, her sharp thinking and dedication to excellence have helped to distinguish the firm’s distinct character. Running the daily operations and responsible for the overall financial management of the company, Martinez handled financial reporting, audits, and internal controls. She also oversaw human resources and shared responsibility with the leadership team for interviewing and hiring staff. Highly organized and attentive to details, Martinez confidently approached every day as an opportunity to continually improve and advance the firm’s prominent reputation. Whether she was developing new processes to improve company efficiency or working with multi-disciplinary teams, her leadership helped to position BCC Engineering for success into the future.

We will miss Sonia immensely.
