Salas O’Brien and its employee-owners value active public service through local projects, international associations, and generous giving. Community service is in our blood. That’s why contributing significantly to the communities where we work and live is part of our Ownership Values.

Helping our team during Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in 2017 and devastated much of the area. We raised $40,000 to help our own team members who were directly impacted by the storm.


Mentoring high school students

Members of our San Jose team serve as regional coordinators and mentors through the ACE Mentor Program, helping high school students and inspiring them to pursue careers in design and construction.


Raising money to fight blood cancer

Our Ohio team recently raised more than $20,000 in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night.


The best thing about Salas O'Brien is that people from around the nation are aligned with common goals and values, all driven to make a difference in the lives of our clients, our company, and our society.
