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 100 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.
