NAPA VALLEY, CA – Sherwood Design Engineers, an award-winning civil engineering firm known for its innovative design and implementation of sustainable infrastructure, has opened a new office in Napa, California – the firm’s eighth location. With headquarters in San Francisco and additional California-based offices in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma County, the new location solidifies the firm’s presence in Napa Valley and the North Bay at large, where Sherwood has been actively engaged in numerous engineering projects for a combination of public and private clients throughout its 20+ year history, including Farmstead Lodging, Long Meadow Ranch, the City of Napa downtown specific plan, Meadowood, Theorem Winery, Sonoma Farm, Ladera Winery, and Knoll House, a boutique hotel currently in development.

“We live and work within our clients’ communities, giving us a first-hand understanding of what’s going on,” said Drew Norton of Sherwood’s long tenure in the Napa Valley. “Opening the Napa office now builds on the strong foundation of our local relationships and experience, and enables us to better serve our regional clients and engage with the community more officially through local events, activities and volunteer initiatives.”

The office is located on downtown Napa’s 2nd Street and was established by Christina Nicholson, Drew Norton, and Cody Anderson. Nicholson, lead civil engineer for the office, has deep personal roots in the region as well as an extensive portfolio of design engineering work with clients ranging from hotels, restaurants and wineries to schools and private residences. With a goal to recruit and hire local engineering talent, three new Napa-based positions are included among the firm’s current job openings

Sherwood’s engineering practice follows a design process that emphasizes the important connections between project sites and their natural ecologies, optimizing land use and environmental resilience as well as community access and connection to nature. In the Napa Valley region, the firm specializes in water and wastewater infrastructure design, site development and entitlements, and fire rebuilds and resilience, frequently helping clients, civic agencies and other consultants navigate complicated regulatory systems. The new office draws on Sherwood’s deep experience to serve diverse clients of all types, while typical clients in Napa include hospitality developers, wineries and private residential landowners.
