About Us

In 2007, Ron Paul founded FOCUS to break away from the industry standard. The idea was to collect talented folks who had a desire to be part of something better, both as individuals and as a company. This remains our philosophy, from the products we put out the door to the service we provide. Who We Are- FOCUS Utah & Idaho

As a full-service civil engineering, structural engineering, landscape/land planning, construction staking, transportation, vertical engineering and surveying firm, we specialize in residential, commercial, and institutional projects, as well as municipal and state government projects. FOCUS is locally owned and comprised of licensed professionals: engineers, land surveyors, landscape architects, and structural engineers, supported by skilled staff of civil design technicians, field surveyors, and administrative professionals. We continue to seek to be a better engineering and surveying firm, deliver better service for our clients, and offer a better place to work.

FOCUS seeks to be a better engineering and surveying firm. We deliver better service for our clients and offer our employees a better place to work.
