About Us

Our firm is proud to be identified among those who built the Los Angeles we see today. Two visionary and legendary structural engineers – George Brandow and Roy Johnston – started as partners in 1945 to engineer the first height-limited buildings constructed in Los Angeles after WW II, the first over-height building allowed by ordinance, the first all-welded structural steel office building, and the city’s first major high rise. Since then, we’ve successfully completed over 27,000 projects.

Throughout our almost seven decades of professional practice, Brandow & Johnston has built on a rock solid foundation of experience and client service to become the leader in Southern California in structural, civil, seismic and forensic engineering.  Our company is now poised for many more decades of leading-edge engineering, business growth, and service to our communities and clients.



Our Values

Relationships Matter

We don’t simply want to do a job, we want to earn a client’s trust and respect.

There Is No Substitute For Engineering Excellence

Our talented and experienced team of engineers is committed to the quality of design.

Innovation Is A Passion

We’re driven to set the standard when it comes to new approaches, new methods, and new materials. Our engineers not only know the code, in many cases their work helped to develop it.

You Don’t Stay In Business Without Integrity

We have been in business for over 70 years.
