"The backbone of every project is Civil Engineering. Untimely and inaccurate Civil plans cost a project time and money; both precious commodities. As a developer I sought out an Engineering firm that cared as much about my project as I did and one that understood the need for timely and accurate plans.

SWS Engineering is such a firm. Under the leadership of Mike Schweitzer, projects are made a priority, thorough, accurate plans are generated and his staff is always available to see the project through to completion.  We take all of our Civil Engineering needs to SWS Engineering."


-Don Veasey, Principal, Kal Pacific & Associates, Inc.
