Orin Bennett started his practice in 1979. Through ownership transitions, Bennett Engineering Services, as it is organized today, has been providing service since 1995 from their Roseville, California headquarters. On January 1, 2023, the firm merged with Y&C Transportation Consultants, adding traffic design expertise and offices in Sacramento, Fremont, and Milpitas. The firm now offers the services of more than 40 staff, including 21 licensed professional engineers.

The firm’s culture includes a commitment to staff retention. This provides an experienced and highly technical project team. We believe offering dedicated staff and assuring a cohesive team from project inception to completion maximizes client confidence.


Our goal is to serve clients as Trusted Engineering Advisors. We achieve this by offering dedicated, highly experienced project managers who focus on being accessible and responsive to client needs.

Our staff team is led by a diverse group of talented and highly experienced licensed professionals. We are a California Department of General Services-certified Small Business Enterprise (SBE) #52302 and a California Unified Certification Program Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) #43459.
