Jacob Nguyen, PE

Vice President


“I am passionate about community-oriented projects, ranging from pedestrian-friendly trails through sensitive wetlands to downtown streetscape beautification projects around the Bay Area. On all my projects—large or small, I strive to deliver value to the project team by exploring innovative design alternatives, understanding the value of community involvement, and respecting all aspects of the environment.”


Gordon Sweet, PE

Vice President


“As a Transportation Engineer in the San Francisco Bay Area over the past two decades, I take great pride in participating and facilitating in the planning, environmental clearance, design, approval, and construction processes associated with transit-related engineering projects. From railway projects in Santa Clara County to freeway improvements in Sonoma County, I relish and embrace each opportunity to successfully manage and build transportation projects that help Northern Californians move towards the future.”

“I strongly believe that a thorough understanding of my client's needs and expectations is paramount to a successful partnership.  My management approach is grounded on clear communication and hands on design involvement through all phases of development.  Being able to draw from my wide range of experience from master planned mixed-use redevelopment, to hillside single family subdivisions, to backbone utility infrastructure, offers a well-rounded perspective that I provide to all my clients.”


“I have experience with a wide variety of land development projects, including large-scale commercial, office, and R&D developments. My responsibilities have included project management, preparation of construction documents including site, grading, and utility design, and specifications. I also have extensive experience preparing feasibility analyses, and assisting development teams through the entitlement process, including environmental review, planned development zoning, and tentative map approval.”


Roland Haga, PE, PLS, LEED AP Vice President


Alex Calder, PLS

Vice President


“I enjoy being an integral part of project design teams that strive to understand our client needs and expectations while meeting their project goals. My experience lends itself to developing innovative design alternatives while working through entitlement processes and meeting stakeholder’s requirements. Employing a hands on approach and drawing from my experience has allowed me to be successful in taking development plans related to residential, commercial/office, retail, education, parks and industrial projects from concept level through construction throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.”




“My experience includes all facets of land surveying with expertise in both the mapping and construction phases of our client’s projects.  I take great pride in mapping the property and encumbrances, foreseeing complex boundary/legal/title issues, and ensuring our client’s protection during the construction.  I bring passion to projects and strive to exceed our client’s expectations.”
