Company Profile 

In 1998, PRP Engineering began providing engineering services for the design of pump stations, reservoirs, and pipeline.  PRP’s founding member Michael Palzes has over 30 years of experience as a consulting engineer in water resources and has been responsible for the design and management of numerous water pump stations, sewage lift stations, reservoirs, water pipelines, sewers, force mains, pressure reducing stations, storm drains, and related projects.

Over the past 20 years, PRP Engineering has successfully contracted with various cities, water districts, private water companies, and land developers throughout Southern California. Our services cover a wide spectrum and include the preparation of engineering studies, district standards and guidelines, design contracts and design/build contracts.  We have also networked with professionals in related disciplines in order to provide our clients with a complete array of services, including surveying and architectural design as well as electrical and geotechnical engineering.

PRP Engineering is dedicated to meeting the specific needs of each individual client.  Our unique approach enables us to select a project team that is right for you by working with a talented staff of individually contracted engineers and designers.  Of equal importance, however, is our commitment to providing these services at rates that are reasonable and competitive.  By hand selecting our project team members from a small pool of experienced professionals, we can eliminate many of the overhead costs frequently incurred when dealing with larger firms. It also guarantees our accountability to you as a client. Most of our staff members have worked together for more than 25 years and are well versed in the specific types of challenges that can arise when designing or rehabilitating water pump stations, sewage lift stations, reservoirs and similar projects.

Our Mission

Client satisfaction is our ultimate goal when designing any project. We make a concerted effort to present as many options as possible for the design/construction of each project, taking into careful consideration materials, budget, and completion time.  PRP would never sacrifice its professional integrity to cut corners.  We are truly committed to providing each of our clients with the best possible design approach available.

PRP Engineering places a strong emphasis on client participation and is readily available for staff coordination meetings in order to meet all objectives within the specified time constraints and budget.  We feel that your staff's involvement is paramount to the successful completion of every project and always appreciate your input.
