Our Company




As a CDR Maguire client, you gain the hands-on involvement of a small firm with the full-scale resources of a large firm. We help you meet your project schedules and handle specific needs with the newest innovations, approaches, and technologies in the industry.

Every client has access to the resources and capabilities of the entire organization through any of our regional headquarters or local offices. From small towns to Fortune 500 companies, our goal is to provide an effective set of solutions to each client.

This has been true since our founding in 1938 in Providence, RI, and today, we’re a mainstay architecture and engineering firm that contributes to some of the East Coast’s most important projects.

At CDR Maguire, we think it’s important you work closely with the people you hired. From doing business with our clients for over 75 years, we know close, cooperative relationships and creative delivery lead to successful projects completed “on time and under budget.”





In June 2009, Carlos A. Duart purchased the controlling interest of CDR Maguire. As the new president, he has an ambitious vision for this venerable New England architectural and engineering firm: go and grow! Expansion will include more construction, inspection business, and transportation-related ITS (intelligent transportation systems) projects, as well as growth in Emergency Management Services offerings.

In addition to adding new services, CDR Maguire will also focus on how those solutions are provided. With Alternative Project Delivery systems, project completion will be faster, more effective, and more cost-efficient than ever. This underscores Mr. Duart’s goal of providing the resources of a national firm on a local, personal level. A hands-on president, don’t be surprised if you see him in your office.

Mr. Duart is the current vice chairman and served as the former president of Metric Engineering, Inc., where he oversaw operations, business development, and strategic direction for a staff of over 300 employees. He began his career at Metric in 1992 after earning both his bachelor’s degree in accounting and master’s in taxation from Florida International University in Miami.

Andre A. Duart is the executive vice president and chief operating officer for CDR Maguire. He is responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations and for enhancing internal organization processes for the entire company.

Mr. Duart joined the firm in February 2011 after leaving a successful career as a financial advisor and business consultant where he assisted business owners with strategic planning and transition. He graduated from the University of Florida in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Decision Information Sciences.
