Natick, MA (October 11, 2022) – Matthews Design Group (MDG), a full-service civil engineering, roadway design, land development, landscape architecture, and consulting firm in St. Johns County that serves the greater Northeast Florida region, joined DCCM, a national provider of design, consulting, and program & construction management services based in Houston, Texas. In acquiring MDG, DCCM is expanding its existing partnership with industry veteran Keri Matthews, who will continue in her role as Chief Executive Officer of MDG, along with Rob Matthews III, PE, who will continue in his role as President. 

“DCCM’s strategic investment in MDG signifies our confidence in their engineering team who already offers a variety of services in today’s infrastructure market,” said James F. (Jim) Thompson, PE, DBIA, CEO of DCCM. “This acquisition of MDG is further evidence of DCCM’s commitment to better serving our clients in the Southeastern region of the United States, with backing from exceptional team members across the United States.” 

“Similar to DCCM, MDG is a company built on passion and expertise,” said Keri Matthews. “With DCCM’s investment in MDG, we will be able to leverage DCCM’s diverse set of resources and decades of shared experience in the infrastructure marketplace while continuing to provide the same high-quality local services and personalized attention our clients value.”
