About Us


Tony Gelacio and Nick Alanis desired to establish an engineering practice that truly focused on providing engineering services for projects that improves the quality of life for all. With their demand for excellence, they established Entech Civil Engineers, Inc (Entech) in 1999. Their focus was to provide infrastructure design and construction management services to their municipal, county and state partners. Not long after this, Michael Ponce joined the practice.

Today, Entech is a well-stablished multidiscipline consulting firm and one of the strongest consulting practices in Texas. Our specialties range from feasibility studies, planning and schematics to final design and construction management.

We understand that our future depends on consistently providing a quality product, clearly communicating with our client and meeting expectations on a daily basis.

Entech has accumulated a staff that includes professional engineers, project managers, hydrologists, technicians, construction managers, inspectors, and administrative support to complete our clients project assignments.
