Since our founding in 1888, Swinerton’s success has been built on a foundation of shared values. We are a 100% employee-owned company, so our people have a personal interest in the success of every project. With a culture of collaboration, we work toward a common purpose: to be the preferred builder and trusted partner in every market we serve, proudly leading with integrity, passion, and excellence.
Innovation and leadership in technology are a long-standing tradition for Swinerton. From fire-resistant brick to reconstructing wood buildings after the disastrous 1889 Bakersfield fire, to pioneering steel-reinforced concrete construction for sturdier buildings to replace buildings destroyed by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, to being a demonstrated thought leader in mass timber construction in the United States starting with the First Tech Federal Credit Union Project constructed in Hillsboro, Oregon that was the largest mass timber (CLT) building in the USA when it was constructed. Swinerton has survived and thrived throughout its 130 years because of its willingness to adapt and a keen awareness of transformative building trends.
