The American Council of Engineering Companies of Houston is the local chapter of our national and state organizations, and, like them, we focus on those issues that are important to our members’ business of consulting engineering. ACEC Houston is comprised of over 100 member companies representing civil, geotechnical, structural and MEP engineering firms. We provide a forum for the interchange of ideas, a source of technical information and expertise and a political voice for the engineering interests in the Houston metropolitan region.
At each level of government and the economy the ACEC organization strives to promote the advancement of the practice of consulting engineering, the promotion of private enterprise, protection of the public’s welfare, the expansion of markets for engineering services and protecting firms from inappropriate liability threats.
