Values & Mission

Since our founding in 1888, Swinerton’s success has been built on a foundation of shared values. We are a 100% employee-owned company, so our people have a personal interest in the success of every project. With a culture of collaboration, we work toward a common purpose: to be the preferred builder and trusted partner in every market we serve, proudly leading with integrity, passion, and excellence.

Giving Back 

Every year, Swinerton employees volunteer their time over and over again to better the communities where they live and work. For some great snapshots of our employees out in their communities, visit our Flickr album.


Long-term success depends on having productive workers who are educated, healthy, motivated to achieve, and safe. At Swinerton, safety is our number one priority. Our motto, Your Family Needs You (YFNY), influences everything we do. We recognize there are great hazards in our industry and one decision could be the difference between life and death. Our unwavering project safety performance standards enable us to send everyone home, every day, uninjured.

Human Rights & Labor

Swinerton is committed to the protection of human rights wherever possible in our sphere of influence and strive to hold our business partners to this same high standard. Swinerton is committed to these principles not only because they contribute to the success of our organization and the well-being of our employees, but because they are a necessary part of upholding our own core values of integrity, leadership, passion, and excellence.
