Sopris Engineering LLC

Sopris Engineering LLC (SE) is a locally owned and operated Roaring Fork Valley company providing consulting, civil engineering and land surveying services to individual landowners, corporations and public entities across the state of Colorado. Since incorporating in November 1994, SE has been involved in the development of several large-scale projects in the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys including projects generated by municipalities and counties, as well as private development groups and individuals. Principals Yancy Nichol, P.E., and Mark Beckler, P.L.S., both carry more than 20 years of experience in project planning and management. A staff of 36 seasoned engineers, technicians and field surveyors use state-of-the-art software and surveying equipment to produce exacting designs, professional submittal drawings and confidence on the jobsite.

Sopris Engineering LLC


As we enter into our 19th year of service, SE has undertaken over 1,500 projects. We have continued to be able to rely upon our strong local and regional reputation for ongoing services and incoming projects. As a consequence of our enduring dedication toward quality service and superior products, we have not pursued standard company advertising - our satisfied clients and successful projects have been able to speak for themselves. As such, our philosophy remains that exemplary service and output stands alone as the best means of speaking toward our firm’s commitment to excellence. We learn what the client wants and provide what the project needs to be both embraced by the community and profitable for the investors.

Sopris Engineering LLC


SE has an intimate knowledge of the requirements necessary to see any type of Civil/Surveying project through to completion: starting with feasibility studies and preliminary planning to design, construction review and implementation. Sopris Engineering's staff has developed a professional working relationship with the Valley's government agencies, private developers and construction firms. This background has enabled SE to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of the land use regulations, technical specifications, construction methods and costs necessary to have projects be compliant and run smoothly.
