We Rise



The Spotlight is on Katie!

The IES Illumination Awards program recognizes individuals for professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design based on the individual merit of each entry. Summit Engineering is proud to announce Katie Cornelius was awarded the 2017 SF LUX Lumen Award of Excellence for Outdoor Lighting Design, as well as an Award of Merit from the National Illuminating Engineering Society for the American AgCredit Headquarters lighting design. The building was designed by TLCD Architecture of Santa Rosa, and features vertical strips of lighting throughout its exterior. These strips can be programmed to generate changing patterns of light in the evening. Another key lighting feature includes the landscape forms on the rooftop deck that create an ethereal glow at night. The building utilizes LED lighting throughout and modular power distribution to maximize flexibility.


EWB Sponsorship

Summit is proud to be a sponsor for Engineers Without Borders this year. The organization is making a difference in other parts of the world by providing clean drinking water and other infrastructure improvements that we take for granted every day. We are supporting their efforts by donating $10,000 to the Sonoma County Chapter, where our very own Steve is serving as the President of the chapter this year.

Giving Back - Careers in Engineering

Summit Engineering's Jason Roberts, PE, participated in a panel discussion at El Molino High School's College and Career Center. It was a great opportunity for students to learn more about opportunities in the engineering field. The engineers on the panel specialized in water/wastewater, environmental, civil, electrical, structural, and computer engineering. Jason's discussion focused on how Civil Engineers use science and mathematics to solve real world problems, and develop ways to construct the "built environment" in which we all live.
