Founded in 1888, we’ve been building America for over 135 years.
Swinerton traces its roots back to 1888, when a young Swedish immigrant formed a brick masonry and contracting business to serve California’s post–Gold Rush building boom. In the years since, the company has survived and thrived through two world wars, the Great Depression and Recession, natural disasters, and dynamic cultural movements.
Today, Swinerton has 21 ofﬁces from coast to coast. Backed by the stability of a $5 billion company and a national network of resources, our local teams are committed to the communities they serve. In small towns and big cities, we have shaped landscapes, deﬁned skylines, and turn our clients’ visions into reality.
Building The Future
A culture of innovation and flexibility has been essential to Swinerton’s enduring success. Since our inception, we have remained forward-thinking and operate on accountability and integrity. Our ability to respond to every project challenge regardless of size, location, or complexity is a hallmark of our unwavering commitment to our clients.
