Testimonials

With over three decades of experience in the water and sanitary sewer industry, I have come across many engineers who have not met my expectations. Pakpour Consulting Group has far exceeded my hopes of finding an engineer that has experience, knowledge, dedication, and thoroughness with special attention to details. I cannot express enough how much a pleasure it is to work with Joubin Pakpour and his staff.

Pakpour Consulting Group worked closely with the City and our architect to come up with creative solutions for a complicated alleyway drainage problem affecting the City’s plans to restore the historic Alameda Theater in our downtown. They demonstrated sound knowledge and great professionalism in preparing their studies and drawings, and completed all items within the City’s required timeline and budget. We will definitely work with them again.
