A RICH 75-YEAR HISTORY

Psomas is proud to be a small (or large!) part of many exciting projects, both past and present. The company’s work spans everything from transportation projects for Caltrans to major solar projects to designing a new Facebook campus. A few examples in the Southern California region include:
• LA River Valley Bikeway & Greenway

With more than 600 employees and 12 offices in Arizona, California and Utah, nationally-ranked Psomas has shown no signs of slowing down, even amid the pandemic. But there’s more to the company’s success than working on projects.
As Psomas looks to the next 75 years and beyond, the company will keep thriving with a team-driven, people-focused culture. Psomas has made great progress to build a more diverse, inclusive work environment for all employees, and will continue to partner with clients and pick projects that matter to its communities.
