Bob Griesinger, CPE

Senior Project Estimator

In 1983, Bob’s career kicked off as a dispatcher for a civil engineering contractor. Since then, he progressed to a small business owner of a heavy-equipment company in 2005, eventually landing where he is today—a firmwide resource for cost estimating at Murraysmith. Bob offers cost estimating and project management experience in heavy civil, pump stations, water treatment, highways, airports, dams, landfills, demolition, and concrete structures. For our team, he’s a go-to expert in organizing bids, negotiating prices, preparing cost reports, drafting GMP proposals, coordinating design-build projects, developing schedules and cash flow forecasts, and networking with clients, engineers, subcontractors, and suppliers. His efforts are focused on building our high-performance estimating team and implementing best-in-class-estimating tools, allowing our team to provide the most accurate estimates to our clients.


Bob was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but now calls Wilsonville, Oregon, home. He and his wife, Michele, have been married since 1983 and have two adult children, Robert and Jessica, as well as a grandchild, Luke. Bob likes to spend his free time cooking, gardening, listening to music, and playing sports.
