A Decade of Building Trust: Our Road to Engineering Success
Achievement Engineering Corporation (Achieveng) is a minority-owned small business engineering firm that has made an indelible mark since its inception in 2010. Starting in San Jose, California, we have expanded to four offices, covering projects throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley. Our journey is defined by our commitment to excellence, community engagement, and a passion for contributing to the growth and development of our own communities.
As owners of Achieveng, our story is deeply rooted in our personal experiences and aspirations. Coming from diverse backgrounds, we have faced unique challenges and have been driven by a common vision to build a company that embodies our values and serves as a catalyst for positive change. We take great pride in our minority-owned status, which reflects our commitment to advancing opportunities for underrepresented groups within the engineering industry.
At Achieveng, our range of specialized services includes geotechnical engineering and Geology, environmental consulting, laboratory materials testing, construction quality assurance, and quality control. Our diverse portfolio encompasses projects of varying scales, from large transportation infrastructure to commercial and small residential buildings. We approach every project with a work philosophy centered around flexibility, efficiency, and responsiveness.
We firmly believe that collaboration is key to success. As a local firm, we prioritize client satisfaction and aim to meet and exceed expectations. We work alongside contractors, representing project owners, to facilitate work rather than merely policing it. By emphasizing open and fair communication, we develop effective working relationships with all stakeholders. Our goal is to solve problems and ensure projects are executed according to contract documents, plans, and specifications, while maintaining a focus on timely and safe completion.
At Achieveng, we are driven by a deep sense of responsibility and dedication to our clients. Thorough, accurate, and up-to-date record-keeping is of paramount importance to us, allowing us to save our clients significantly by successfully defending against claims and change order requests.
Throughout our journey, we have cultivated a work culture that values integrity, professionalism, and community engagement. We understand that our success is intertwined with the success of the communities we serve. That’s why we take pride in actively contributing to the growth and development of our neighborhoods. We participate in community events, support local initiatives, and strive to create opportunities for aspiring professionals in engineering and related fields.
Achieveng’s success story is not just about our achievements as a company; it’s also about the connections we forge with our clients, partners, and employees. We believe in fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment where every voice is heard and respected. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion extends beyond our own doors as we actively seek partnerships with minority-owned subcontractors and suppliers, creating a network of professionals who bring unique perspectives and expertise to our projects.
Meet the Executive Team of Achievement Engineering
Arash Firouzjaei, President and Owner
Our role extends beyond business leadership; we take pride in our role as mentors, champions, and caretakers of the engineering world. Driven by a shared vision, we are committed to making a positive impact on the engineering landscape and the communities we serve.

We’re in it to make a real difference, and to help shape a better future for everyone.
Ali Tahmasbi, Manager of Special Inspections & Materials Testing Laboratory
In our lab, we dig deep to find out what materials are really made of – how strong they are, how they hold up, and whether you can count on them. Every test we run is like an adventure where science meets hands-on work. We’re making sure that what we put out there isn’t just ‘stuff,’ but something that shows off what people can really do. We’re not just breaking things to see when they fail; we’re opening doors to what could be possible.
Sina Hooshdar, PE, Vice President of Operations and Co-Owner
Quality for us isn’t just a box to tick; it’s the guiding principle behind everything we do. We are the professionals who ensure every aspect of construction meets the highest standards, scrutinizing every detail. This is more than just oversight; it’s our pledge to everyone who will depend on the structures we’re involved with. Each precise action we take turns visions into something tangible and enduring.
