About Us

At Shimmick, we are problem solvers. Creative thinkers. Innovators. We approach each project with fresh ideas and big thinking in pursuit of better answers, better outcomes, and better experiences for our clients. We are resourceful, nimble and resilient. We work hard together—and with our clients—to deliver high-quality projects that are on time, on budget and beyond expectations.

We are a market leader in heavy civil infrastructure, focusing on water, transportation, and transit projects. We also offer expertise in deep, complex foundations through our operating company, Legacy Foundations, as well as mechanical, electrical and plumbing, mining infrastructure, and operations and management services.

In 2017, Shimmick merged with an existing civil construction company (via AECOM), comprised of heritage companies Washington Group, Morrison Knudsen, and others dating back to the 1960s. Today, Shimmick and these legacy companies operate as a single, integrated entity under the Shimmick name and brand.
