About Scott A Zurn, P.E.
Founder and CEO of Level Engineering & Level Design Partners.
For years in the industry, Scott observed something missing that cost homeowners untold stress and frustration, cost contractors lost time and money, and left real estate agents and lenders unable to satisfy their clients’ needs. He decided to do something about it.
In 2015, Scott Zurn founded Level Engineering, a national firm of independent design professionals collaborating and ensuring that our built world is positively impacting the planet we live on. As a For-Public entity, Level Engineering & Architecture aims to create a new level of entrepreneurial success for designers while simultaneously creating designs that contribute to a thriving planet.
The idea for Level Engineering didn’t come to fruition without the extensive experience he had in the engineering and public works sector. Mr. Zurn has worked as the Public Works Director for the City of Estes Park, Civil Engineer for the City of Longmont, and a Project manager for the City of Thornton. In 2013, Scott was named the Transportation Professional of the Year by ITE. He was also designated as a Public Works Leadership Fellow by the American Public Works Association (APWA).
Scott graduated from the University of Wyoming with a focus on civil and transportation engineering. He grew his knowledge early on – selected as one of two engineers in the country to be a field engineer for Bechtel Power Corporation in Phoenix, Arizona.
Since then, he has secured and managed 100s of millions of federal grants and grant-funded NEPA studies and transportation projects. He earned the ENR Best Project of 09, for a 300-acre Brownfield Redevelopment including $250 million dollars in infrastructure bridges and 650,000 sf of retail development.
Scott has three fabulous daughters, and two fabulous stepchildren with his wife, Anya Zurn. Scott enjoys outdoor activities around his home in the mountains, flying planes on the weekends, and hunting with his friends in Montana each fall.
