Every state has a heart. You can feel its rhythm when you wander the sidewalks, navigate the streets, experience the culture. As civil engineers, surveyors, and urban planners, keeping that heart alive is an essential part of how we approach growth and development.
At Johnson & Associates, we’re proud to be a part of the vision that has redefined Oklahoma as a state and a destination over the past 30 years. Along the way, we’ve evolved to meet needs as they change – while standing firm on the values that never will:
Relentless evaluation of details before each project.
Follow-through that doesn’t end when construction begins.
Creativity that doesn’t lose sight of project requirements.
Our story began in 1988 when Tim Johnson began to envision a civil engineering firm that could operate under the same professional standards he held closely as his own: attention to the details, commitment to a project even when the status says ‘completed’, and the kind of open, honest communication that’s based on building relationships, not just signing contracts.
Tim’s experience has deep roots in Oklahoma City, where he began as a civil engineer for The City of Oklahoma City in 1976. In 1981, he joined local civil engineering firm Smith-Roberts & Associates and eventually became vice president and co-owner. When he left the firm in 1988, he stepped into entrepreneurship with little more than four employees, a handful of prospective projects, and a growing reputation for excellent work done with integrity and tenacity.
In the years since, Johnson & Associates has grown to include full-service surveying and urban planning departments and a diverse staff that includes specialists in stormwater analysis and design, construction supervision, and traffic engineering.
In 2014, the company ownership expanded to include Tyler Muzny, a registered engineer, who started as an intern in 2003 as he finished his engineering degree.
It grew again in 2018 with the addition of Matthew Johnson. Matthew started as a company survey crew member in 2005 and is currently a Licensed Professional Land Surveyor, leading the growing survey department.
Today, the company continues to move confidently forward – embracing innovation and the evolution of the industry – with a heart still true to the values that haven’t wavered since day one.
