...progressive solutions for
infrastructure projects

About Us

DPC was established in 2014 to serve municipal and private clients with infrastructure and utility projects.  DPC delivers solutions to water, wastewater, stormwater and infrastructure projects for municipal and private clients in Massachusetts and Connecticut.  As the consulting business continues to evolve to meet the growing industry needs, absent growing utility budgets, it is critical to deliver project solutions through alternative and more cost-effective delivery methods, including performance-based engineering.  DPC business model is centered on progressive solutions for municipal infrastructure, and we strive to meet the needs of our clients by starting with the end in mind, facilitating creative solutions that are practical and implementable.  This facilitates a balance between short-term capital needs and long-term sustainability.

"I started DPC to offer my clients a unique blend of big-firm qualifications, creative and progressive implementation strategies, as well as balanced and cost effective solutions, allowing my clients to achieve more with less."

Our Owner

Dave Prickett is a registered Civil Engineer in both Massachusetts and Connecticut.  For nearly 20 years, I have served as a consulting engineer, working side by side with southern New England communities, planning and implementing more than $300,000,000 in capital projects.  During my career, I served in many roles in the project delivery system, including project engineer, construction observer, project manager, principal-in-charge and client manager, on a vast array of projects.  Following are some of our key staff qualifications:

  • I have successfully completed and implemented more than 150 engineering projects, focused primarily in wastewater, water, stormwater and infrastructure management in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire.  Attached is a table highlighting these projects and the categories of work performed for each project.
  • Developed capital improvements recommendations including more than 300+ miles of sewers, 150+ pump stations, 10+ wastewater treatment facility upgrades, and other related improvements.

  • As project manager, I lead planning, design, permitting and construction projects for water, wastewater, and infrastructure projects ranging in size from $5,000 to $60,000,000.
  • I serve as Technical Specialist for collection system and wastewater pumping stations, assisting with questions and advice related to gravity, low pressure and vacuum sewers, as well as pump stations and infiltration and inflow studies.  I am actively involved in NEWEA’s Collection System Committee and the Connecticut Association of Water Pollution Control Authorities, and regularly serve as moderator/presenter for trade shows and specialty conferences.
  • My earlier career experience as a project engineer and construction observer, planning and implementing the technical details of design and construction phases provides me with additional insight into practical engineering solutions as a project manager, and also facilitates creative business development solutions towards innovate project approaches.
