Our Company

Hold It Right There!

This is why we do what we do

When Fran Hagen, Sr. opened Westwood’s doors in 1972, he and his team were eager to show clients how really smart engineering could enhance communities. That's the passion that got us going, keeps us ticking, and has us working across the country, and sometimes even overseas. When there is a big site challenge or a design that requires innovation, that's our sweet spot. Just ask one of our 10,000’s of happy clients or give us a call. We are here to help.

Westwood's mission is to provide Solutions for your Success.

Problems: Bring it on

There are big problems to solve on projects every day. Whether it’s maneuvering through seemingly impossible site approvals or designing the systems that make communities thrive, we help simplify the effort.

Solutions: Mix it up

That thing that makes a project better is within reach when you have really talented people putting their minds together. There is no shortage of professional expertise at Westwood to solve site issues and push the limits of creativity.

Values: Break it down

At the core, we do good business because we built a team of people who are honest and respectful. At Westwood, our team values relationships, innovation, dedication, initiative, and growth. The result? Success all around.

Protecting our greatest asset

Our people are our greatest asset, so individual safety and well-being is a priority no matter where we are or what we are doing. Promoting a safe work environment with a goal of zero incidents is Westwood’s ultimate goal. Westwood’s safety incident rates are consistently below the industry average. Strong initiatives are enforced to conduct effective risk analysis and implement effective hazard control measures, wellness information, and incentives through our Safety and Lifestyle programs. Daily Job Safety Analysis (JSA), safety discussions, 360 vehicle inspections kick off daily project meetings, and our monthly company-wide Town Halls open with a safety minute. Our Lifestyle program concentrates on well-being for all facets of daily living.

Giving Back
We make it personal

With so many opportunities to help others, it can be tough deciding where to offer up our time, talent, and giving dollars. Knowing that many of us have a cause that we care deeply about, it just makes sense that Westwood's employees get to choose. Together, we clean up, build, and rebuild; cook, feed, and serve; run, swim, and bike; donate, fundraise, and do whatever it takes! We focus on supporting children, disease research and cures, homelessness, and hunger. We give to civic organizations such as military veterans, police, firefighters, and more. And, we support our professions with scholarships.

It feels good when giving is personal.
