Be a part of a bigger story. We're hiring.

The employee-owners in our downtown Los Angeles office connect with our Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco and Walnut Creek offices — and offices across the country — to deliver environmental, engineering, construction and consulting services. As a 100 percent employee-owned firm, our focus is on delivering success for our clients.

Los Angeles was home to our first California office in 1923, where we provided waterworks, sewer, sewage disposal, electric lighting and public utility appraisal services. We reopened a downtown office in 2018, continuing our statewide growth momentum and expanding services in the metropolitan area.

Our work in the region encompasses the aviation, power, oil and gas, federal and military, municipal, and environmental industries, and our team of professionals is ready to apply our full complement of corporate resources to meet client needs in any market. Our specialties in Los Angeles include:

Business Diversity

We are committed to maintaining a diverse mix of suppliers, because they are key in providing innovative ideas to help our clients achieve success. By actively helping a wide variety of businesses belong to our project teams, we enrich those projects and our communities in ways that go beyond the tenets of law. These efforts have been highlighted by leading California organizations, including the Southern California Minority Supplier Development Council, WTS San Diego and the City of Los Angeles Public Works.

California Contractor #1107087

  • We’ve 100% owned this place since 1986. That means we approach every project with the heart and dedication of an owner. For the next day’s problem or the next decade’s vision, we work harder and smarter to consult, plan, design, build and deliver.

  • The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Los Angeles Post awarded Burns & McDonnell with the Large Business Award for our achievements with the small business subcontracting community in California.

  • We’re engineers, architects, construction professionals, scientists and more. What do we all have in common? We care about each other, our clients and a job well done — to the benefit of our communities and the world.

  • Fueled by the drive to strengthen communities, our employee-owners formed the Burns & McDonnell Foundation in 1988. Giving back isn’t an obligation of corporate culture around here. It’s a privilege and a personal commitment that beats in the heart of each one of us.

  • Burns & McDonnell hosted a Community of Inclusion and Equity Symposium. Together, attendees discussed best procurement practices for diverse businesses.
