City of Roseville Blue Oaks Boulevard Widening right turn lane bike lane intersection

They’re the best firm I’ve ever worked with. They’re so easy to work with. I never get pushback anytime I want to make changes. They have such a good attitude about it. I never feel like I’m putting them out, or hear “This is going to cost more money”, and I appreciate that. I would recommend them to any jurisdiction.

City of Roseville zone 4 pump station

In response to the 2014 drought, the City needed to get two pump stations designed, bid and constructed in a very short time frame, meeting all City design specifications. Bennett Engineering has been very responsive to the schedule, and has provided innovative solutions to work around possible delays.  As a result, the pump stations were on schedule to meet demands for 2015.

BEN|EN’s responsiveness as well as their ability to think outside the box is what I like best about working with them. Leo was able to expedite the processes especially working with Caltrans on a federal project. He was able to call specific people and navigate those waters. That was worth its weight in gold!”

Matt Johns

Nevada Irrigation District Banner Taylor water storage tank

Bennett Engineering Services worked on the design-build team for the Upper Banner project for the Nevada Irrigation District. The design-build team really listened to our concerns and was very responsive. Using the design-build delivery process functioned exceptionally well—the project has been on time and on budget.

The process was streamlined and the communication, responsiveness, and quality were excellent.  I was very pleased with the level of service. I never had to wait for a response. When the project engineer was going to be unavailable, he provided information ahead of time and had another engineer ready to respond if he couldn’t.

Citrus Heights Water District water main replacement construction

“A lot of firms will do plans the way they are used to, but Bennett Engineering said, “Tell us how you want the plans to look and we’ll make them the way you want them.” No one has ever asked us that! So the end product was something we were very familiar with. It looked like we did it in-house and our workers will not have any problem deciphering what the drawings mean or finding information in the future.”

City of Auburn downtown crosswalk sidewalk ADA improvements

The work Leo Rubio did for us with the Caltrans Relinquishment project was stellar.  He really did one-of-a-kind work.  We were able to build Streetscape Phase 1 because he got it moved right through the Commission.  The whole thing was done in 18 months.  It was amazing.

Bernie Schroeder

Bennett Engineering has provided a senior engineer staff member for the City of Lincoln and their availability and attention to detail have been a great asset to the City of Lincoln.

The fact that we are comfortable referring them is big. It’s their overall approach. You’re comfortable at the end of the day that you won’t have any surprises with the civil during construction.

My favorite thing about working with Bennett Engineering is the level of commitment to their work product. They take pride in their work and want to see a successful project, which is very apparent from working with them on the Del Paso Boulevard project. Leo Rubio will bend over backwards to find solutions for us and think outside the box.”

Leo and his team are very responsive to us.  Leo’s knowledge of the Caltrans process has been a huge asset for our project team because he’s been able to push some things through that would often take longer.  For me, that’s a very important aspect to this project – getting through the Caltrans process – as well as his knowledge of the people up there.  It’s helped move things along.”

I am more than pleased with Bennett Engineering.  On one project, I called on a Thursday and they were out at the site on Saturday doing survey work to get the client out of a crunch. The client waited until the last minute, but they jumped through hoops to take care of him.

Bennett Engineering was the unanimous selection due largely to their breadth of municipal experience service, very positive record, and strong track record of success obtaining funding from various State and Federal agencies. Bennett Engineering provides engineering services to several agencies in Butte County, including the City of Biggs. Bennett is highly regarded by area cities and the Butte County Association of Governments and by local Caltrans staff.
