SGM has been contributing engineering solutions to Colorado communities for several decades. As a multidisciplinary engineering, surveying, and consulting firm our business philosophy is to serve as partners to our clients while contributing to their success. SGM is headquartered in Glenwood Springs, CO with additional offices in Gunnison, Aspen, Durango, Meeker, Salida and Grand Junction.
SGM is involved in engineering projects that affect peoples’ daily lives – from the roads we drive on to the water we drink. SGM serves as the engineer-of-record for many cities, towns and special districts throughout Colorado and has long-established relationships with attorneys, land planners, architects, developers, landscape architects, geotechnical engineers and construction companies. We have extensive knowledge of applicable federal, state and local regulations. Our knowledge, relationships and experience allow us to provide the right solutions for a wide range of civil engineering and surveying projects. As the largest Western Slope engineering firm, our clients have come to appreciate the large-firm resources we are able to deliver with small-firm, personalized service.
We’re proud to be the largest full-service engineering firm in Western Colorado. Our seasoned staff of 80 possesses the diverse technical skills required to address all project challenges. From the site development survey to the initial/final design to ensuring the project is built to specification–we have you covered.
Since 1986, our success has been built upon three key tenets: building deep and strong client relationships, understanding client’s inherent uniqueness, and assembling the best talent for the team. In fact, for many Western Slope communities, SGM has been trusted to design and oversee the construction of their largest capital expenditures.
To mark the momentous occasion of being in business for 30 years, SGM is excited to share, in 30 weekly installments, the clients, projects, employees, and events that have contributed to our success and unique culture. Enjoy!

Much like the postal service, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night keep these engineers away from the jobsite as they work to ensure projects conform to design specifications as they are being built. Field engineers also serve as referees, resolving inevitable conflicts that arise between the design and the reality of construction out in the field.
We recently chatted with long-time SGM Engineer Blaine Wright to give you a glimpse into the world of a field engineer, and better understand the challenges and rewards of a job spent out in the elements. (Read More)
