Lon Romsaas, PE

Lon started with Swenson, Hagen & Co. as a part-time draftsman in 1969 while attending Bismarck State College and North Dakota State University (NDSU). Full time employment started when Lon graduated from NDSU in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering. In April 1978, Lon became a partner in the firm and progressed to President / Managing Partner in 1999.

Thirty plus years of civil engineering experience has provided Lon with an array of design opportunities. His favorite design tasks are in site planning followed closely by subdivision design and project management. Lon’s thorough experience in site grading, water, sewer, and storm sewer design make him an immediate asset to any site design team. His knowledge of concrete, asphalt, landscaping and irrigation will guarantee that your finished site is both functional and attractive looking.

Experience has taught Lon that you can never truly “know it all”. To truly provide your clients with the best possible design solutions, continuing education is vital to staying on the cutting edge of technology. This drives Lon to continue to evolve as a professional while remaining confident with the wealth of knowledge he brings to any project.

Lon is driven to provide the company’s clients with a commitment to understanding their goals and to provide practical options. Professional decision making and attention to detail are the result of years of experience both in design and in project management. Being involved with projects from initial conceptualization through project management during construction, have provided Lon with a broad knowledge to draw on when providing professional services to the client.

Lon is described as a workaholic, but he does have a life outside of Swenson, Hagen & Co. that includes sailing, skiing, scuba diving and golf. His wife, Jen, joins him for the first three hobbies but finds him too competitive to enjoy golfing with him.
