    Darryl Wayne Goodson


    BioGrowing up as the son of a California based heavy civil contractor, Mr. Goodson operated and understood the equipment utilized to construct projects well before his studies as a civil engineer began. Upon graduation with his B.S.C.E. from Cal State University Fresno in 1978, he took his Dad's advise and went to work for the Guy F. Atkinson Construction Company, one of the largest companies in the nation at the time.

    Atkinson pressed Darryl into large project logistical planning making his first field assignment writing the CPM schedules for two nuclear power plants in Washington State. Mr. Goodson worked and learned in a team under Dr. Paul Tiesholtz (Stanford PHd) who some years later would return to Stanford and start CIFE. From power plants, Darryl headed to the jungles of Venezuela to build a structural steel bridge which was an intake structure component on a rock fill dam. While there, he studied for and passed the registration exam to become a Registered Civil Engineer in California. This was followed by a two year stint in Chile where he first lead the field engineering team supporting the construction of a 30 million cy dam with a classic arch gate spillway structure followed by running the night shift concrete operation in the construction of that spillway.

    Leaving Chile, Mr. Goodson earned his Masters in Construction Engineering and Management at Stanford University in 1984 and then headed to the Rocky Mountains to build roads and bridges for COP Construction and Washington Construction in Montana. Having reached the project manager level by this time, Mr. Goodson took a position with Granite Construction Company in Orange County, CA just as the Design-Build era in highways began. After running a 16 million cy site development project in Aliso Viejo, CA, Darryl helped estimate and later became Project Manager of the SR-91 Toll Road near Anaheim,CA, the nations first PPP venture.

    In 1996, Granite Construction joined Peter Kiewit and Washington Corporation to successfully bid the $1.3 billion I-15 Design Build freeway project in Salt Lake City. Darryl wrote the selected CPM schedule for the project and was named Segment Manager of the $400 million Cottonwood Segment from 48th Street to 123rd Street. With this, Mr. Goodson's days in project management ended as he was moved from Senior Project Manager to Area Manager to Western U.S. Regional Manager to Assistant Division Manager of Granite's Heavy Construction Division between 1998 and 2007. He served as a Vice President and Corporate Officer in his last four years with Granite Construction.

    In 2007, Mr. Goodson joined Stacy and Witbeck Inc. of Alameda, CA as a principal and member of the Board of Directors. Stacy and Witbeck was, and is, a leader in heavy civil transit construction nation wide and lead the development and use of CM/GC contracts in the transit industry. During his tenure the company expanded geographically and experienced significant growth completing over $1.2 billion in CM/GC transit contracts in Salt Lake City alone.

    In the Spring of 2011, Mr. Goodson walked quietly away from the construction industry to start the family owned Fort Klamath Ranch Ent. LLC in Oregon. Fort Klamath Ranch has interests in timber, Wagyu cattle ranching, White Sturgeon aquaculture and real estate development. Believing in the concept of giving back however, Mr. Goodson began teaching a construction management class at Stanford University in the Fall of 2017. The class offered; CEE240 Project Assessment and Budgeting
