Rivera Engineering was established in January 2010. A notable project was the MEP-Technology design for the DISD Ann Richards Middle School. This is a $30M educational venue which received several accolades for sustainable design and construction. Rivera also performed the commissioning of the sophisticated lighting control system for the UNT “Apogee” Stadium; and its three Wind Turbines in Denton. And many other projects ranging from surgery centers, university laboratories to airport facilities, street lighting and parking lots.
In 2013 the Company principal José Rivera temporarily moved to engage a large and ambitious infrastructure project in oil rich Saudi Arabia.
José served as an advocate, and senior expert, to the Saudi government during construction and commissioning. While living there José traveled thru the Gulf countries, Europe and Israel broadening his views on sustainability, anthropogenic carbon emissions and energy consulting. He also promoted the innovative production of de-carbonated oil to the government, the Saudi Royal family and to the industrial community, in association with a green fuel company based in Spain.
After returning to Dallas, José co-founded the MD Alliance with his good friends and premier engineering experts Michael J. Smith and Igor Abadzic. This agile business platform potentiates the technical capacity of Rivera and the synergistic growth of its members.
