Self-motivated, passionate, strategic, attentive - those are just a few of the words that come to mind when we think of Richard, our Principal. With more than 14 years of experience, Richard has been at the forefront of several complex and challenging engineering assignments. When he established Melqart, Inc. in 2015, he wanted to create a place of business that serves its clients with a level of commitment and honesty that no other firm could achieve. These values are what allows Melqart to successfully complete difficult projects with confidence.


Richard graduated California State University in 2008 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Since then, he has engineered projects for all major industries - commercial, residential, industrial, and utility. 

Even as the owner of Melqart, he still spends a great deal of time in the office and on the field. "I truly enjoy what I do. Engineering is, and always will be, my passion and I relish the opportunity to perform amongst clients and other talented engineers." - Richard Daoud
