1996 was a great year for many things—the Dow Jones Industrial Average reached above six thousand for the first time, Atlanta hosted the summer Olympics…and Jeff Oviedo founded JOA Group in Orange County, California.

A skilled Civil Engineer with an impeccable reputation in project management, Jeff launched the company and soon thereafter landed key clients such as John Wayne Airport, the City of Anaheim, the County of Orange Public Works, Boeing and The Home Depot.

In the years that followed, JOA has overseen hundreds of complex projects in and around Southern California including the redevelopment of Boeing’s former Anaheim defense facility, the reuse of the former 66-acre NASA industrial plant in the City of Downey and the revitalization of Dana Point Harbor.

Today, nearly 25 years since opening its doors, the company is growing faster than ever, adding clients like the Housing Authority of Los Angeles, the Orange County Sherriff’s Department and the Orange County Transportation Authority. JOA maintains the same unshakable dedication to client success, enthusiastically leading teams through challenges and toward dazzling results.


The JOA team operates in the leadership role and skillfully navigates projects through the development process. Our team members have been chosen based on their superior results, their high-level of experience and their positive attitudes. JOA consultants are industry leaders who can navigate complex projects with multiple team members and viewpoints. And we have fun doing it.
