Sunrise Turns 45 and Still Going Strong!

This February marks the 45th anniversary of being in business – and counting! Since the beginning of Sunrise Surveying to the ground-breaking success of Sunrise Engineering today, a lot has changed. We are not just talking about the logo, technology, or bad haircuts, but the way in which we do business has changed (especially over the last couple of years). However, even with all of the changes in both the company and the world over the last nearly five decades, there are some things that have remained constant. We are still committed to producing quality work and lasting relationships with each client, community member, and employee we work with.

So, this month we’re celebrating our clients, our communities, and the opportunities we’ve had to help shape the AEC industry, and especially, our professional and skilled staff.

The Sunrise Story

Sunrise Engineering began in 1978 as Sunrise Surveying, a small land-surveying company in Fillmore, Utah. Its founder, James A. Cox, was a seasoned land surveyor with the Utah Department of Transportation. For the past 45 years, Sunrise has grown from a four-man firm to its current status of over 400 employees working in 22 offices in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and Wyoming. In addition to surveying and traditional civil engineering disciplines, our services have grown to include natural gas services, GIS, building code services, community development, and training services.

We Are in It for The People!

We recognize that our success and strength lie within our engineers, surveyors, technicians, trainers, inspectors, administrators, and support personnel who have embraced the entrepreneurial spirit of the firm’s founders. We are constantly evolving, adapting, and reinventing ourselves to fit the needs of our clients, communities, and employees. It’s reflected in our core values: accountability, family and life balance, safety, teamwork, integrity, fun, trust, and quality.

We are beyond proud of 45 years of growth, success, and many wonderful memories as a regional leader for professional engineering and consulting services. We look forward to many more years of creating solutions that work and relationships that last.
