The year was 1998. William “Bill” KEITH had already founded two engineering/surveying firms in the past, after a brief retirement, he launched the firm we know today — KEITH. His idea was simple, be a “boutique” firm offering civil engineering and surveying services with a personal approach, getting to know each client individually. The idea, and the firm, took off. Bill made a large impact to many in Broward County – to acknowledge his philanthropic efforts, officials at the City of Fort Lauderdale and City of Pompano Beach have dedicated a park and a preserve in his name. His legacy is our challenge to find the essential balance between growth and preservation.
Today, Bill’s daughter Dodie Keith-Lazowick leads the firm holding fast to the ideals her father put forward. With multiple offices and 200+ employees we have long since shed our boutique label, however, our client approach will never change. We embrace the opportunity to work closely with clients, building relationships and community.
As we look to the future, Dodie’s son Alex Lazowick serves as the third generation professional at KEITH. Committed to the values his grandfather and mother have instilled in the firm, Alex will lead KEITH in consistent hands from growth to evolution advancing and anticipating the needs for the next generation of development.
As we’ve grown, so has our focus. KEITH now offers a full range services and incorporates the latest technology innovation. It’s an exciting time to be a part of our firm, and a part of our industry.
We look back and forward with the same degree of fondness. Large projects or small. Public or Private. Highly specialized details that change the landscape or simple elements that directly improve peoples lives. Our commitment to making a difference through our work, and community involvement, has attracted and retained a professional team of experts with expansive ideas and experience. Our decades long organizational knowledge of local projects as well as expertise in state, federal and international considerations are invaluable.
You are invited to be a part of our history — whether you wish to inquire about a Career at KEITH or want to Start a Conversation about an upcoming project, we look forward to getting to know you…KEITH was founded on conversations and community.
