CARLOS A. DUART

PRESIDENT

Read more about him...

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

 

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 of Science degree in accounting and Master’s degree in taxation from Florida International University in Miami.

OUR HISTORY

CDR Maguire has been a mainstay architecture and engineering company. Founded in New England, the company is now a national, multi-award-winning firm known for responsiveness to our clients, the creativity of our designs, the quality of our work, and the expertise of our staff.

WE INVITE YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT OUR HISTORY

Find out where we came from and where we’re going in the future.

1940

COMPANY IS FOUNDED WITH EARLY FOCUS ON TRANSPORTATION

Maguire was originally founded in 1938 with a staff of two and not a single project on the books.

1950

COMPANY EMPLOYEES CARRY ON THE LEGACY AS CHARLES A. MAGUIRE, FOUNDER, PASSES AWAY

In 1954, the firm’s direction was managed by a group of partners that continued to diversify services throughout New England, especially bridge projects in the State of Rhode Island.

1960

COMPANY PURCHASED BY COMBUSTION ENGINEERING

By 1963, more than $3 billion in projects had been completed, and with new ownership, focus now included the private sector with clients like Polaroid, United Aircraft, and Kaiser Aluminum.

1970

COMPANY EXPANDS INTO FOREIGN MARKETS

This era of expansion for the company included acquisitions and growth into markets like the Caribbean, South America, and Africa.

1980

COMPANY IS REPURCHASED BY MANAGERS AND RENAMED CE MAGUIRE INC.

During the slowdown of the 1970s, the firm underwent consolidation and was repurchased from Combustion Engineering.

1990

COMPANY REBUILDS WITH SIGNATURE PROJECTS – IWAY & BOSTON CENTRAL ARTERY

During a major reorganizational phase, the company established itself as one of the leading firms in Pennsylvania, led a joint venture in designing the most complex section of the Boston Central Artery, and was awarded the IWAY project, which became the company’s signature project.

EARLY 2000

CARLOS A. DUART PURCHASES MAGUIRE GROUP AFTER GROWING HIS PREVIOUS ENGINEERING COMPANY TO OVER $75 MILLION

As our nation’s priorities shifted from infrastructure spending to military and defense, the company also shifted its priorities from growth to optimizing operations and internal organization. As part of that shift, the company was sold to Mr. Duart, who had extensive experience in streamlining engineering firms.

CURRENT

COMPANY RETURNS TO ITS CORE STRENGTH AND IS RENAMED CDR MAGUIRE INC.

As chance would have it, the company found its new owner while expanding its geographic reach into Florida. Carlos A. Duart, then President of Metric Engineering, partnered with Maguire on an environmental CM assignment in Hialeah, FL. Mr. Duart’s vision of expanding into the northeastern market and Maguire’s goal of finding an outside partner were a perfect fit.

 

Returning focus to its core strength – transportation engineering – and with renewed ambition to renew its greatness, the company promises to lead the way with innovative solutions for its clients.
