Get to Know the Sunrise Kingman Office

Nestled amidst the stunning landscapes of Mohave County, Arizona, the City of Kingman serves as the vibrant backdrop for the success story of Sunrise Engineering’s dedicated office. Kingman is a city that embodies the perfect blend of historical charm and modern vitality. Known for its iconic Route 66 connection and as the gateway to the Grand Canyon, Kingman attracts visitors with its scenic beauty and welcoming atmosphere. It is within this dynamic setting that Sunrise Engineering established its Kingman office in the spring of 2020, fueled by the city’s growth and the need for specialized engineering solutions.

The primary objective was clear—to enhance service delivery to Kingman and Mohave County. Specializing in civil engineering, with a focus on water, wastewater, transportation, and GIS needs, the Kingman office quickly became a vital hub for tailored solutions in the region.

At the heart of this success story is Mike Jennings, a Kingman native who transitioned from working for the City of Kingman to becoming an essential part of the Sunrise Engineering team. Mike, predominantly working remotely with the GIS department, plays a pivotal role in managing the day-to-day operations of the office.

Collaborations are primarily with the City of Kingman and Mohave County, with a growing clientele that reflects the strategic location of the office. This localized touch is further emphasized by Mike’s consistent presence, ensuring the office is manned and ready to meet the unique demands of the region. Periodically, other Sunrise Engineering staff work remotely from this office, strengthening coordination efforts with local clients.

Since its inception, the Kingman office has been involved in approximately 16 design projects, covering water, sewer, and transportation, in collaboration with the City of Kingman. Additionally, the office has taken on various on-call projects for plan review and water/sewer modeling.

As the office continues to evolve, the focus is on meeting the increasing demand for engineering services in Mohave County. Business development efforts are expanding into the Colorado River area on the western border of Arizona, demonstrating the commitment to enhancing the regional footprint.

The journey has not been without its challenges. Initially faced with limited staffing, the Kingman office has overcome obstacles to become a fully operational hub. Looking ahead, there are aspirations to expand the team and continue growing the office as more projects are secured in the Mohave County area.

The roots of the Kingman office trace back to a fortuitous encounter when some Kingman staff won a Sunrise Engineering giveaway at a Rural Transportation conference. This chance meeting led to subsequent collaborations and projects, ultimately solidifying Sunrise Engineering as the preferred engineering service provider in Kingman.

In conclusion, the Kingman office of Sunrise Engineering stands as a testament to the commitment to local engagement, collaboration, and the seamless delivery of top-notch engineering solutions in Mohave County and beyond. As the office continues to build lasting relationships, the ongoing success and growth of this integral office are eagerly anticipated.
