Encotech Engineering Consultants is an Austin-based boutique engineering firm specializing in Structural, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) Engineering. Ali Khataw, P.E., President and CEO, and the TSPE — Travis Chapter 2016 Engineer of the Year, founded Encotech in 1990, adding a second office in San Antonio in 2009. In recent years the firm expanded its capabilities and service offerings to provide Commissioning, and Third-party QA/QC services.

We are a small business, but we provide big business services, with an entrepreneurial spirit.  Our human and technical resources are second-to-none and many of our employees have achieved the highest certifications in their respective disciplines. We are on the cutting-edge of the latest technologies and at the forefront of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and sustainable design.  Yet, we are small enough and nimble enough to offer our clients responsive service and personal commitment to every project.

From the day Ali Khataw founded the firm, our values and mission have remained constant: We are 100% dedicated to quality design, responsible and ethical performance, and attentive client service.  It’s our honor to help you shape the world you live in.


At Encotech Engineering, we take great pride in what we do, a characteristic that is continually reflected in the firm’s design work and in the attitudes of our staff. The following is a list of awards and recognitions Encotech has recently received:
