From higher education to courthouses, from senior living to water treatment and power plants, we have supported the Golden State in its continued growth and development. Our projects in California have varied widely, but the defining traits of our work have never changed: working closely with clients to understand their needs and then delivering results.

Universities, community colleges and K-12 districts recognize Sundt as a highly knowledgeable and trustworthy partner.

We work alongside stakeholders to understand their needs, often leaning on progressive design-build delivery methods to enhance collaboration. Our work in higher education includes projects from learning resource centers to state-of-the-art laboratories. The Ernest E. Tschannen Science Complex for California State University, Sacramento proved to be an example of progressive design-build’s ability to maximize quality while minimizing cost.


Sundt collaborates with higher education clients to build safe, comfortable and affordable housing to California students.

On-campus housing impacts students’ well-being, quality of life and ability to be successful, and the higher education clients we build for understand and value that. Our student housing projects in California help our clients maximize their budgets and space to create affordable communities where students flourish.
