Job Oppurtunities

Chica & Associates, Inc. is always looking for new opportunities. With many projects requiring the fulfillment of a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Historically Underutilized Business (HUB), and Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) percentage, Chica & Associates, Inc. is proud to announce that we fulfill all three requirements. We have been on many teams as sub-consultants and look forward to working with you.


In the past few years, Chica & Associate, Inc. has furnished the engineering services to develop construction plans for several of the City’s capital improvement project.
Because of their experience and talented staff, they were able to save the City a considerable amount of money on the Avenue A Project by eliminating storm sewer and ROW for the southern half of the project.
The City of Beaumont considers Chica & Associates as one of our “go-to” firms. They consistently deliver excellent work on time and within budget. I highly recommend Chica & Associates, Inc.
