Goldstream Engineering, Inc. was founded in 1983 to provide reasonable, reliable, and responsible civil engineering for the local Fairbanks community and surrounding areas. Since that time, we have expanded to include structural, geotechnical, and environmental design, planning, permitting, grant administration, construction management, and administration services across Alaska, both rural and urban. We focus on innovative and economically feasible and culturally acceptable infrastructure projects. We believe that the most successful projects require a partnership founded on trust between the owner, engineer, agencies, and builders, whether force-account, contracted, or other effective collaboration.

We have developed innovative contract concepts for projects that fully integrate the owner, designer, and engineering into one team. Our projects range from simple on-site water supply and wastewater disposal systems to off-grid hotels and lodges, municipal and rural roads, buildings, bridges, ports, airports, erosion control, drainage, site development, and water and wastewater treatment plants.

We believe the answers to challenges in rural Alaskan villages need to develop from within the community. That education and training for Alaskan Natives will ultimately provide economically and culturally sustainable solutions in their communities. Our role is to educate our clients, support, and implement the decisions they make to the best of our ability.
