Engineering the built environment since 1995

Owens Design Consultants has shaped California’s modern cityscape since 1995, through the vision of design engineered for the built environment. ODC continues to incorporate their design philosophies in an effort to build an advanced living space.

Infrastructure health is integral to advancing civilization and structuring social communities. Many of America’s facilities and supporting infrastructure is nearing its lifecycle, underdeveloped, or inadequate to sustain future growth. ODC is inspired to design healthy civil systems for generations that will sustain future growth and conserve vital resources.

Our design values are based in our commitment to functional design solutions, managing client expectations and resources, and sound engineering principles. We pursue design excellence in every phase from its presentation in our plans to the performance and aesthetics of the project in its completed state.

Under the tutelage of his father, TJ learned engineering and design at a young age spending summers and weekends land surveying and fixing redline drawings. In adulthood, he completed a BS in Civil Engineering and then served six years in the Navy Civil Engineer Corps. He was drawn to join the engineering vision his father built in 1995 to dream, create and build the future of infrastructure.
