Core Values

Shimmick’s mission empowers people to imagine, plan, build and operate high-quality, complex projects in partnership with our clients. Our core values – Safety, Achievement, Transparency, Empowerment and Responsibility, Authentic Relationships, and Mutual Trust and Support – guide this mission and everything we do.

Safety — of our employees, our partners and our communities — is at the core of our work. We protect life by ensuring our work is performed safely and through a longstanding commitment to achieving zero accidents and zero injuries in everything we do.
We are passionate and take pride in what we do. We expect excellence from ourselves and our work, and we are dedicated to delivering innovative, cost-effective, high-quality solutions for clients and communities.
We are open, honest and forthcoming. We encourage free thinking and communication. We share ideas and information openly. And we support meaningful collaboration with each other, our partners, our clients and our communities.
Empowerment and Responsibility
If we say we will get it done, we will. We deliver on our promises. We empower our employees to perform their best by fostering an entrepreneurial spirit that encourages creative problem-solving, independence and accountability.
Authentic Relationships
We value our relationships with employees, clients and partners. We build sincere, authentic, meaningful relationships that often endure beyond any job or project.
Mutual Trust and Support
We are partners. A team. We think together, we trust one another, and we embrace diversity in ideas. We treat others with fairness, respect and dignity. We conduct ourselves to the highest ethical standards, with honesty, integrity and professionalism. And we always do the right thing.
