DC Engineering to open Cd’A office

Meridian-based company to staff two plus intern there

  • Print Article

Meridian, Idaho-based DC Engineering Inc. plans to open a Coeur d’Alene office on Jan. 1, says David Cutbirth, president.

The consulting engineering and technology company has leased 1,150 square feet of space at 122 W. Neider in Coeur d’Alene, he says.

Cutbirth says one reason the company chose to open an office in Coeur d’Alene, its seventh overall, is “geographic diversity is wonderful. We have existing staff members and employees that desired to live in that area.”

Also, he’s from the Inland Northwest area and graduated from Mead High School.

Starting out, the Coeur d’Alene office will be staffed with two full-time employees and an intern, he says.

DC Engineering—not to be confused with Seattle-based DCI Engineers, which has a large office in Spokane—offers services in applied information technology and operational technology, controls, electrical, energy services, refrigeration systems, mechanical engineering, plumbing systems, and structural engineering.

Clients include governmental agencies, health care providers, retailers, and technology companies. More specifically, DC Engineering has worked with businesses including Target Corp., Wal-Mart Stores Inc., WinCo Foods Inc., and Whole Foods Market Inc., says Cutbirth.

The company also has worked with protein bar company Clif Bar & Co. on its recently constructed, approximately 275,000-square-foot bakery in Twin Falls, Idaho, says Cutbirth.

Established in 1998, DC Engineering has more than 150 workers and has offices in Meridian and Twin Falls, Idaho; Missoula, Mont.; Mansfield, Texas; and Madison, Wis.

The company also has employees stationed in remote offices around the U.S., Cutbirth says.

Craig Hunter and Rob Kannapien, both of Coeur d’Alene commercial real estate brokerage Coldwell Banker Commercial Schneidmiller Realty, handled the engineering company’s lease of its Coeur d’Alene space.
