Swanson Rink's philosophy is summed up in the brand developed by our employees "Taking Responsibility." These words represent our mission to provide our clients with a thorough, constructible, cost-effective, and well-coordinated design.
Furthermore, we will always be there to help resolve any design or construction issues that do arise, with no excuses made.
Swanson Rink understands the importance of sustainability not only in our projects, but also in our business practices and everyday lives. We promote sustainability as an integrated part of our company culture through education and our corporate business practices.

Swanson Rink believes in making a positive impact in our community. We support the Bannock Youth Center. This program provides living skills, leadership training, mentoring, and resources to youth in the Volunteers of America transitional living programs.
Swanson Rink worked with VOA to put together a team of engineers, architects and contractors to remodel the Bannock Youth Center. In addition to donating time to the project, the design and construction team sponsored a two year fundraising initiative to help offset some of the construction costs. The renovated Bannock Youth Center opened in October 2010.
Swanson Rink employees have also joined the Support Sky Harbor Clean Up volunteer group in Phoenix, AZ. Swanson Rink has done work at Sky Harbor in the past, and this is a great way to help the communities around the Sky Harbor Airport. Twice a year, an area near the airport is selected for cleanup, and a crew of 300 to 400 volunteers within the construction industry participate at this event. It is a dirty job, but it is a great opportunity to give back and meet area locals, as well as network with people within the construction industry. Swanson Rink would like to recognize the Support Sky Harbor group for a well-organized and productive community effort.
