About

Swanson Engineering was established in 2009 and was incorporated in 2012 as Swanson Engineering, Inc.  Bob Swanson (RCE -43032) graduated from U.C. Davis in 1975 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering.  He started his career in the oil industry working for Union Oil, and soon after went into the construction industry building single family homes in 1977.  In 1984, Bob went to work for a civil engineering firm in Bakersfield.  He quickly took over the role as manager of special projects, working on commercial, industrial, agricultural, and educational facilities.  In 2009, Bob and his son Justin left their former employer to start Swanson Engineering where they felt they could better serve their client’s needs.

In 2010, Bob and Justin were joined by Mike Noel, who had also worked with them at their previous employer.  Mr. Noel (RCE- 72598) graduated from Fresno State University with a degree in Civil Engineering.  Marcus Dokolas joined Swanson Engineering in late 2010 and has been working in the civil engineering field since 1995.  Mr. Dokolas graduated from Westmont College with a degree in Physics/Engineering.  Also working at Swanson Engineering are Chris Conway (RCE- 30323), Justin Symm who recently graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Civil Engineering, and Chad Smithson who has been drafting for Swanson Engineering since the beginning of 2011.
