I appreciate the opportunity to be engaged in the delivery of a large project for a long term repeat Client.


I am blessed at the type of work I get to do and the diversity of people I get to work with.


What I enjoy is working for a company that is highly involved in the mass transit industry.


My reason for enjoying working for Dikita Enterprises is summed up in two words, family oriented. I’ve always been treated like a family member, not an employee.


I started this company in 1979 by hocking my car. I took a loan out for 90 days, paid it back on the 89th day. Make a promise, Keep your promise. We have survived because of our integrity & ethical practices.

The best thing about working for Dikita is I am able to grow in my career, learn new things about the construction field. I feel there are no limits as to what I am capable of because growth is important to Dikita.


I enjoy working here because there is caring and good communication among all.


I have been working for Dikita for nearly two decades during which time I have enjoyed and appreciated the granted challenges, opportunities, and career growth. Thanks, Dikita, for all the support! 


I’ve learned so much while working at Dikita. Eve is knowledgeable and challenges you to want to become more knowledgeable as well. 


Dikita is a family within a family that always cares about your professional development. The fact that the company cared enough to invest in my future, inspired me to invest in myself. 


I highly recommend Dikita to provide any facet of transportation corridor planning, transit studies, civil design, or rail construction.

…the Board of Trustees selected Dikita Engineering to serve as our Bond Program Manager. To date, we couldn’t be more pleased than we have been with the firm. Their services have been invaluable and without them, I do not believe we would have experienced the success we have enjoyed.
