About Our Engineering Firm in Hawaii

Year Started: 2010

Managing Principal: John Thielst

Our engineering firm in Hawaii opened in 2010 after the company had been working on Oahu for seven years. Our location opens up opportunities in the Pacific Rim and adds to the culture of the company in a distinct way. The staff in Hawaii are truly ‘ohana and enjoy working and relaxing together especially during office pau hana’s and service projects. We are eager to give back to the local community and regularly engage with a number of charities and professional organizations to help foster the positive things happening in Hawaii. We have a talented team with a broad depth of experience throughout the Pacific Rim and we'd love to meet with you, share some pupus, and tackle your engineering needs.
