Our Team

After being in the industry for many years, we felt there was a need for a single source firm to handle all engineering tasks under one roof. From there, Redcon was born. Housing a Civil/Municipal department, an Electrical department and a Structural department. Started by three like-minded individuals wanting to create and have intimate relationships with clients while making the process seamless for them. We offer a wide range of services encompassing each department, while offering an extensive 60+ years of experience and knowledge within each discipline.
