Our History

Venture Engineering was first established in 1990 with Steve S. Powell, P.E as its principle engineer and CEO. Powell graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1979, and, after completing his military service, became the city engineer for the City of Myrtle Beach in the late 1980s. Never one to be satisfied with the 'easy route,' Powell soon found himself eager for a new challenge. Using his military background, common-sense approach to engineering, and inventive problem solving, he struck out on his own and established Venture Engineering.

This independent spirit and can-do attitude has become the cornerstone of Venture's business philosophy. In the more than 25 years since its founding in a humble office off Highway 501 near Conway, SC, the company has become one the most diverse, best qualified engineering teams on the Grand Strand. Powell prides himself on developing new talent, and some of the most promising engineers, designers, and project managers in the area have honed their craft while working for Venture.

Over the years, Venture Engineering has tackled a diverse array of engineering and construction projects, but no matter what the job, one thing has remained constant throughout — we bring the same tenacity and independent thinking to every project we take on. Whatever your engineering need, we look forward to partnering with you to make it a success.
