Sponsor Spotlight

SMPS Sacramento is proud to celebrate the sponsors who make it possible for us to offer a higher level of programming and help our chapter continue to grow. Each month, we will also be recognizing one of our Industry Partner sponsors on the home page of our website and via social media.

How would you describe your company to someone at a cocktail party?
We design the route you decide to take to your next destination, whether it is by foot, bike, car or transit.
We manage the construction of those routes, as well as, public utilities, and we provide the needed surveys for any type of planning, design or construction project to be accomplished.
Is there anything you want to tell our members about your firm that we may not know?

Psomas is growing! Psomas acquired two firms in 2018, Andregg Geomatics (Auburn survey firm) and Covello Group (Walnut Creek construction management firm specializing in water), bringing our team to over 600 throughout 17 offices throughout California, Arizona and Utah. In addition to these acquisitions providing our staff with growth opportunities, Psomas has more capacity, resources, and expertise we can offer to our clients throughout Northern California.  

Another interesting fact to know about Psomas is our subsidiary called Micropolitan – which is a multi-family, market-rate builder, developer, and property management company, (http://www.micropolitanco.com/about-us/). Our various multi-family housing projects, located in Southern California, have received multiple housing awards.

What is one fun/interesting fact about your company?

Psomas is a founding member of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) and played a key role in the development of ISI’s groundbreaking Envision™ rating system. Envision is a sustainability rating system for infrastructure projects. Our Chairman Emeritus, Timothy Psomas, PE, is the founding chair of ISI’s Board of Directors.

What is the most exciting project in your firm’s portfolio and why?

Since Psomas is a large company, we would like to share an exciting project from each of our NorCal teams:

  • Survey Team: Natomas Levee Improvement Program (NLIP) – Psomas provided survey and mapping services for 42+ miles of State and Federal levees and Sacramento and Sutter County roads in the Natomas Basin. This project occurred post Hurricane Katrina, and the result of when the Sacramento levee system was decertified by FEMA and a building moratorium was placed on the north Sacramento region. (Client: Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency)
  • Construction Management Team: EchoWater Project – Psomas is providing construction management services to the upgrade of Regional San’s wastewater treatment plant. This is one of the largest public works projects in Sacramento’s history! (Client: Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District)

  • Engineering Team/Land Development: New Sacramento County Courthouse – Psomas is providing civil engineering services on the new Superior Courthouse. This project will help change the skyline of Sacramento. (Client: NBBJ; Owner: Administrative Office of the Courts)

  • Engineering Team/Transportation: Downtown/Riverfront Street Car – Psomas is providing the civil engineering, utility coordination, and survey services for this regionally significant alternative transportation project that will help reduce car usage around destination points between the West Sacramento Civic Center and the Sacramento Midtown entertainment and retail district. (Client: HDR Engineering, Inc.; Owner: City of Sacramento and Sacramento Regional Transit District)
What are you doing differently this year to market your services to your clients?

As previously stated, our recent acquisitions have provided us with increased staff and resources, so we can serve more of our clients during a time when everyone is busy and firms are thin on capacity.

Why do you find value in sponsoring SMPS?

SMPS draws a focused audience representing the A/E/C industry and the client groups that are requiring our services. Psomas serves both as a prime and sub in the projects we pursue, so the business development opportunities are constant, making our annual sponsorship a no-brainer!
