Still, CEC’s most important goal is to manage all aspects of engineering to ensure a project’s success. The bigger objective is to have a direct impact on society and to create a better standard of living one project at the time.


A history of integrity & a passion for progress


In 1974 Rob Jansen founded a civil engineering business in Curaçao. A year later, he sold the company to Stanley Martina and a Dutch engineering firm. In the years that have followed, CEC has developed into an international consultancy firm having completed a number of projects of a wide variety of scale and complexity throughout the six Dutch Caribbean islands.


Ing. George Douglas, who joined CEC in 1997, took over the firm in 2005, maintaining its core values and solid discipline. In 2014, Ing. Gamal Douglas took over the company. His innovative brain and multidisciplinary team of consultants specialize in the latest developments in civil, structural, or environmental engineering.


Today, CEC is known for delivering prime quality and leading excellence to our clients from small projects such as urban houses to large commercial buildings such as MCB Bank, Centrale Bank van Curaçao en Sint Maarten, CTEX building, Amidos, Ennia, Curaçao Airport, SVB, Tera Kora and Playa Canoa Wind Farm and many more. Throughout the years, we have received numerous awards and honors for our excellent work in civil engineering. Our approach to embrace people’s best potential and engaging human capital has been recognized by clients and others all over the world as we also offer consulting services to European, North and South American investors.
