The year was 1998. William “Bill” KEITH had already founded two engineering/surveying firms in the past, after a brief retirement, he launched the firm we know today — KEITH. His idea was simple, be a “boutique” firm offering civil engineering and surveying services with a personal approach, getting to know each client individually. The idea, and the firm, took off. Bill made a large impact to many in Broward County – to acknowledge his philanthropic efforts, officials at the City of Fort Lauderdale and City of Pompano Beach have dedicated a park and a preserve in his name. His legacy is our challenge to find the essential balance between growth and preservation.
Today, Bill’s daughter Dodie Keith-Lazowick leads the firm holding fast to the ideals her father put forward. With multiple offices and 100+ employees we have long since shed our boutique label, however, our client approach will never change. We embrace the opportunity to work closely with clients, building relationships and community.
As we look to the future, Dodie’s son Alex Lazowick serves as the third generation professional at KEITH. Committed to the values his grandfather and mother have installed in the firm, Alex will lead KEITH in consistent hands from growth to evolution advancing and anticipating the needs for the next generation of development.
