Brian Puppe PE, Owner & Structural Engineer

Growing up in a small farming community in North Dakota, Brian first became intrigued with drafting & construction in his teens. He first pursued Architectural Drafting and Design at NDSCS in Wahpeton, ND but during his coursework, he became drawn to the Engineering & Design Industry. He moved to NDSU in Fargo, ND where he acquired a B.S. in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Structural Engineering. During these years, working construction in the summers, Brian also gained valuable experience and an extensive understanding for the construction flow and phasing. After graduating, Brian moved to the Vail Valley, where he began work as a Structural Engineer. Over the past 20 years Brian has completed the design of many residential and commercial mountain projects, from beginning schematic design to final structural construction administration, throughout the state of Colorado.
