Company Profile

Richard and Jane Chiera started Athena Engineering, Inc. in the garage of their Covina, CA townhouse with a $5,000 tax refund in 1984.

The company started as a mechanical HVAC integrator, but soon added general construction and building automation. After incorporating in 1986, Athena Engineering relocated to San Dimas, where it has been ever since. In 2007, we moved into an award-winning office complex designed and built by our own team.

Athena Engineering is a proven leader in mechanical HVAC design and integration, Building Automation Systems and General Contractor services. Our commitment to a multi-disciplinary approach led us to create three fully formed departments that can act individually or as a unified team, providing superior services and integrated solutions.

Our unique flexibility allows us to deliver projects on time and within budget for projects ranging from $100,000 to $30+ million. Access to all three departments for every project also helps us find the most energy efficient solutions possible. Green building is not a fad, but a path to sustainability.

We recruit and retain the smartest staff in the industry. That’s not a boast, that’s a fact. Our employees are the backbone of Athena Engineering, bringing unmatched experience and boundless creativity to each project.

Our mission is to conduct every aspect of our business with integrity and respect. We believe in maintaining financial stability to ensure job security for our employees and a strong financial position for our clients. While we love new clients, much of our business comes from repeat customers, providing the highest compliment possible.
