San Diego, CA

Engineering Firm in San Diego, CA

Ever since Syska Hennessy Group helped design phase 1 of San Diego’s iconic convention center — which opened in 1989 — we have proudly enabled our city’s physical transformation. Today, we enjoy the fruits of that transformation firsthand from our downtown office.

Clients and Projects

We have longstanding relationships with some of the largest companies and institutions within San Diego and throughout Southern California. Our work can be seen on the waterfront’s Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego and the iconic County Administration Center, in Terminals 1 and 2 at the San Diego International Airport, and on the campuses of University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University.

We’ve been part of the high-tech and biotech boom throughout the region, working with Biogen, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, ViaSat and their partners in the higher education research sector. We’ve also helped San Diego establish itself as a national leader in healthcare through our work at UC San Diego Medical Center, Sharp HealthCare and Scripps Health.

With weather like this, we take full advantage of all the San Diego region has to offer! Only a short distance away, we like to get together to hike after work and camp under the desert sky in the spring. In the summer, we fish in the ocean and rivers, and then ski and snowboard in the winter.

We’re also active in the local community, supporting America’s Finest Corporate Dash 5k race which benefits the Challenged Athletes Foundation – Operation Rebound, Making Strides Breast Cancer walk for the American Cancer Society and an in-office event called Canstruction which benefits the San Diego Food Bank.
