Reliable. Efficient. Cost Effective.

Rehabilitating California’s infrastructure on time and on budget

About Genuine Engineering, Inc.

Specializing in work for Caltrans and other public agencies

Genuine Engineering, Inc. began with a desire to rehabilitate and maintain California’s infrastructure by using quality workmanship and materials in every contract. 

The principals chose to focus on their individual strengths—reliability, integrity, respectful communication, and problem solving skills—while doing their best to solve some of the biggest issues facing the California public works construction industry.

Specializing in work for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and other public agencies, Genuine Engineering, Inc. understands the intricacies of constructing, installing, retrofitting, and rehabilitating roadways, overhead signs, bridge decks, bridge columns, sound walls, and retaining walls. They also specialize in freeway slope stabilization, slope paving, micropile installation, crash cushions, drainage systems, ADA curb ramp construction, and other similar projects. With over 45 years of collective experience, the founders personally walk each job site to see if there are any potential design conflicts that could lead to constructability issues. During pre-construction meetings, they make sure to discuss potential conflicts that may arise in order to mitigate these issues before construction begins.  All work is done with a genuine desire to partner with the agency to complete projects on time, within budget, and according to the specifications.
