Whitson Engineers is an established firm with an energetic culture and a distinguished West Coast presence. Pride and passion in our work is the engine that drives our team of professionals and collaborative work environment! We work on a wide array of projects that matter to us and help shape our community. We promote continuous growth that fosters learning, which nurtures design that is rewarding and with purpose.
We believe in working hard and playing hard! Having fun together informally helps us collaborate successfully. Whether we’re finding creative solutions for a new project site or creating an inspiring design at the Annual AIA Great Sand Castle Competition at Carmel Beach, our team is up for any challenge, respecting and valuing each member’s diverse skills and experiences.
We are completely invested in serving our community. Since 1979, our company has been recognized for award-winning projects, leadership and innovative management style that complement the West Coast’s quality of life. We believe that our efforts help the community—and make a positive difference. The pride we take in doing exceptional work is reflected in our projects—the places we visit and drive by every day—such as schools, recreational facilities, neighborhoods, community hospitals and clinics, highways and more.
Along with active memberships in professional associations, our firm participates in school, charitable organization and neighborhood activities. We sponsor a recreational summer softball team and encourage a healthy lifestyle, inspiring employees to build teamwork and feel connected. Our community efforts include an annual sponsorship to the Meals on Wheels Women Who Care campaign; as the founding sponsor, we celebrate the women who generously give their time and efforts serving our community. We support our youth, through local schools and YMCA programs. And, not afraid to get silly, we get decked out in our best holiday attire for the Jingle Bell Run/Walk, raising money for the Arthritis Foundation.
We live and work in an area where land and sea embrace as one of the most beautiful and dynamic places on earth. Our lives incorporate these surroundings, whether we’re playing Jenga on the company patio, competing in an impromptu ping-pong match in our conference room or running, biking, kayaking or hiking outside the office. We all look forward to getting together for seasonal activities such as our summer family beach party, holiday-themed events and team-building activities. The West Coast’s excellent schools, charming neighborhoods and world-class recreational opportunities offer an exceptional quality of life.
