For years in the industry, I 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. I decided to do something about it.
With 32 years of civil & structural engineering experience, I have contributed to all aspects of the building industry. I have achieved success in commercial and residential markets, held leadership roles such as a building official, city engineer, and director for local governments, and accomplished hundreds of millions of dollars in successful commercial building and civil infrastructure as a designer, project manager, and leader.
I have extensive experience with design and project management of transportation, roadways, traffic engineering, storm drainage facilities, bridges, site development review, and inspection. I have also enjoyed building more than 100 custom homes throughout the Front Range.
I am a Leadership Fellow with APWA and was awarded the 2014 Professional of the Year by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). I have held leadership roles in securing hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants and have managed multiple federal grants funded NEPA studies and transportation projects. I also held a lead management role in ENR’s Best Project of 2009 for a 300 acre Brownfield redevelopment including $250 million dollars in infrastructure bridges and 650,000sf of retail redevelopment.
I have three fabulous daughters as well as two fabulous stepchildren with my wife, Anya. I enjoy outdoor activities around my home in the mountains – getting back to my Wyoming roots.
“Please excuse typos, moving fast.” – Scott Zurn
As a 20-year business consultant & executive coach, I have worked with many organizations to take them from idea to profitability, from stagnation to growth, and from team survival to high performance. I love bringing forth new ideas to the marketplace and discovering new and better ways to produce effectively while giving deeper meaning and fulfillment for all involved.
Our core company values such as “Teach as You Grow” and the joy of “Being of Service” aren’t just marketing-speak. They are the drivers of our business decisions.
We look at our individual and company behavior through the lens of our values and ask – what is needed and wanted to express those values at a greater Level?
When Scott shared with me the current state of many engineering firms and the impact that was having on the residential market needs as well as the downward spiral of salaries and retirement for engineers – I knew it was time to commit my own skills and talents to make a real difference.
Austin is my hometown (30+ years) and I love it. So, I had no idea all these years that I am actually a mountain girl! Now, I am hooked. And, any chance I have to explore the wild beauty of Utah, Colorado, or Wyoming, I take it. I keep sane with hot yoga and caring for my two giant malamutes, Togo and Daenerys. I enjoy adventures of all kinds with my husband – including the challenges of our 5 mostly-grown kiddos.
“The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating – in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to our life.” – Anne Morriss
I believe that the success of an endeavor lies in the team behind the work and the leader directing its course. This is true for any projects being undertaken with the utmost consideration to life and safety and the impact they may have on the environment.
With more than 30 years in the field of structural engineering, I spearheaded the completion of multiple design projects using my expertise and passion but integrating value and uncompromising element into my services. It is this spirit that provides the driving forces behind my success in the field of engineering
From the Pacific to the East Coast, I have brought my knowledge and various experiences in design, construction, and management. I have designed different types of structures encompassing residential, commercial, retail, institutional and public works. These include residential houses and condominiums, schools, airport terminals, hospitals, hotels, historical buildings, offices, shopping complex, water and wastewater facilities. These are not only for the design of new structures but the renovation and retrofit of existing buildings. They included signature tenant improvements, façade repairs, curtain walls, vertical and horizontal building expansions, and structural repairs.
I have professional licenses in Hawaii, New York, Connecticut and Minnesota. The last two are currently inactive but could renew if there are projects. I have participated in committee works such as the structural review of the New York City Building Code and currently the New York City Existing Building Code with the objective of aligning the city code with the International Building Code and the International Existing Building Code. I have been a member of several engineering organizations such as the American Concrete Institute and Structural Engineering Association of New York to name a few.
My personal time has been devoted to my wife and kids but if I have some extra time will play a round of golf or hit some spares in the bowling alley. I am also an avid chess player which gives me the brain boost when trying to think of a solution for a project.
I think the foothold of the structural engineering profession in the industry is starting to lose its traction because the way the works of the engineers have been perceived. And that is, the engineers are out of reach by the community because they don’t cater to the people at the grassroots level.
However, this is entirely untrue, and so we are changing that. I have collaborated with Level Engineering to bring our profession to the community. Helping them to understand who we are and how we can help them. Our profession is now alive, strong and growing due to the efforts of Level Engineering.
I am a Colorado native with over 15 years of engineering experience. My educational background
includes a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, graduate studies at
University of Colorado Denver in Structural Engineering and Concrete Materials, and a Master’s degree
in Geotechnical Engineering from Norwich University in Vermont.
I have provided engineering services
for extensive areas along the front range of Colorado, as well as Montana, Texas, Pennsylvania,
California and internationally in South Korea, Australia, India and France. I am currently a licensed
Professional Engineer in Colorado, Nebraska, and New Mexico.
My passion is in concrete materials, design and forensic analysis. I also enjoy working with clients to see
their vision and make that become a reality whether that is removing a wall in their home, repairing
structural problems, or any other vision they may have. No project is too big or too small.
When I am not working, I enjoy the great Colorado outdoors with my wife and son. We also enjoy
traveling both domestically and internationally.
With 20 years of structural engineering experience, I have worked in several different fields, including new design, remodels and additions, restoration of historic buildings, and forensic engineering. At each opportunity, I have learned more about the aspects that create our built world. Currently, I hold a license in both Colorado and California, but if the right project finds me, I am able to acquire licenses to meet the project’s needs.
My favorite aspect of the work I do is truly helping people with their projects and dreams. No project is too big or too small, and I am always here to support our clients in finding a successful solution.
When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family. We have two amazing sons, as well as an amazing daughter in-law, with an active grandson. I love to travel and see the world, recently visiting Canada, Bali, and Italy.

My passion is the residential market as I believe I can make a difference for the homeowner. This passion began when I helped family and friends remodel and build their own homes. With this experience, I have a better understanding of all the pieces that are involved in the entire construction process.
My work does not end at a set of plans. It includes working with contractors to solve problems as they may arise in the field, collaborating with team members on solutions as well as incorporating the home owner’s ideas to deliver the best structure possible for their needs and dreams.
Having caught the travel bug years ago, my family and I really enjoy immersing ourselves into other cultures. More open-mindedness and seeing from other perspectives have been invaluable learning experiences. I relish the opportunity to learn about others values and views while at the same time spending time with my wife and daughter.
I worked with Bryan and got a very thorough review of my foundation and interior walls in advance of potential remodeling. You can tell Bryan is very passionate about what he does and answered all my questions and educated me on my new house. I learned a lot and feel more confident in moving forward with remodeling and working with Level and Bryan again. I highly recommend this firm for engineering/inspection services. – OD, CO
Growing up in Colorado and attending The University of Colorado at Boulder has developed in me a deep love for our amazing environment and the culture we have here on the Front Range. I spent the first seven years of my career working primarily as a field engineer looking for practical, hands-on solutions, in real-time. Now as part of the LEVEL Engineering Team, I get to apply the lessons I’ve learned to real challenges facing homeowners, contractors, architects, and real estate agents.
LEVEL Engineering drew me in with its mission and values. I am happy to say that LEVEL is made up of people who are individually and collectively committed to its core values. We walk our talk. I especially love our commitment to being of service to the people we call our customers. We always strive to do what’s best for our clients and their projects.
The thing that I enjoy most about my job is getting to meet people from all walks of life and working together to make our customers’ dreams a reality.
In my free time you can find me chasing our two delightful young children. I also enjoy exploring the world of adventure that the Colorado mountains provide via trail running, backpacking, climbing and just about anything else that is out there.
I am an Alabama native but after visiting the Salt Lake area several times, I knew this is where I wanted to be. For my undergraduate degree in civil engineering, I attended Auburn University then I pursued my masters of science degree in structural engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Since graduation, I have obtained my Professional Engineering License in Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.
Throughout my career, I have obtained over twelve years of structural engineering experience. Right after obtaining my masters degree, I was fortunate enough to be hired as a fulltime structural engineer for a major energy and chemicals design firm in Houston, Texas. I worked for this company for over nine years, working on projects ranging from multi-million-dollar scopes to multi-billion-dollar ones. My last three years at this firm, I personally lead gulf coast structural projects for several major energy companies with scopes ranging up to one hundred- and twenty-million-dollar budgets.
I have found over the last few years of my career that I love engaging with clients to ensure their needs are met. This often involves sharing knowledge of the structural engineering practice so that the customer can be apart of the design process allowing their needs to be met in due time and within their budget. The Level Engineering practice methods facilitate this ideology and I could not be more excited to be a part of it.
When I am not working, I like to be active. The Salt Lake area has unlimited amount of hiking trails in the summer and ski trails in the winter that I will be exploring every chance I have with friends and family. I also have a workshop in my garage where I build and refinish furniture for fun.
Justin was incredibly responsive and I love how well he worked with my vision of our home’s kitchen remodel. He was very straightforward in letting me know what would work and where things may go awry. His turn-around times were also a thing of beauty since we were on a bit of a tight timeline. Overall, I would highly recommend Level Engineering for a home renovation project. – Zack Downs, SLC
Growing up around Colorado’s Front Range, I spent my early years playing baseball, snowboarding, and fishing. It was there I learned to appreciate our state’s amazing natural resources. Regularly passing by abandoned mine tailings, dried up streams, and seeing the relentless development of once pristine land taught me at a young age that problems are usually easier to create than to solve.
In 2013, I completed my bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering with an emphasis on Water Resources at the University of Colorado at Boulder. However, it was not until a post-graduation backpacking trip in Chilean Patagonia that I realized, true to my Colorado roots, my true passion revolves around humankind’s connection to nature and, more specifically, the water resources which make such a beautiful place possible.
Now, after seven years working as an engineering consultant for municipal water and wastewater districts across the Front Range, I’ve seen first-hand the unwavering need for quality engineering and consulting services. I am proud to have facilitated many successful water and wastewater projects which have improved the level of service to municipal customers. My experience in other areas of civil engineering, municipal consultation, and subsurface utility engineering has given me confidence to take on today’s challenges, both large and small.
Over the next five years, I plan to continue working to expand my network of like-minded of engineers, contractors, and municipal agencies to improve the way the industry operates for the better.
The environmental problems we face together were created over many generations, but they don’t have to take generations to solve. Working together, I believe it’s possible to significantly improve the quality of life for, not only ourselves and our neighbors, but for the natural environment as well.
I now live in Denver with wife, Ashley, and our 5 chickens. On the weekends, I still play baseball and get out to fly-fish whenever possible.
“If you don’t have a leader, be one” – Jay Blackburn
Jay from Level Engineering was beyond helpful in my home project. I am moving an interior wall and I had a support from the roof sitting on that wall. Jay listened to me, the scope of the project, my skill level and we discussed a few different options. He helped me understand the pros and cons of each, the best way to tackle the project and answered all of my questions in a simple to understand way. He also looked further into the relocation of the wall to see if I would run into anything else.
It was nice to talk through everything with a professional. He was very courteous, respectful and it was very nice to have an engineer help with such a “little” project.
I highly recommend Jay and Level Engineering for any level project you have. – Tyler Pengelly, Denver
As a forensic engineer with a background in analysis of structures, civil grading and drainage, building envelopes, and related building science systems I take a holistic approach to every assignment.

Since graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (B.S. 2011, M.S. 2012), I have worked for over ten years as a structural engineer. My experience includes a variety of structural design, forensics, and construction. I have worked on design projects as small as a residential rafter repair to as large as industrial structures such as water towers.
I am a licensed professional engineer in Colorado, California, and Illinois, and have served as the engineer of record on projects in several different states. On the forensic side, I have performed over 600 inspections and served as an expert witness in litigation cases. I spent several months on a couple field engineer assignments where I gained valuable construction knowledge.
I have found my forensic and construction experience to be incredibly valuable as it is important to not only know how to design a structure, but also how to build it, how it functions, what problems may occur, and how to fix them. I enjoy hands-on work and applying my knowledge toward problem solving in the field.
On the personal side, I enjoy numerous hobbies, most of which involve being active and creative. While that is most frequently mountain biking or snowboarding, I enjoy dabbling in disc golf, guitar, hiking, rock climbing, and a variety of other outdoor or musical activities. My wife, daughter, and I live in Fort Collins, where we thoroughly enjoy everything that the great state of Colorado has to offer.
My family and I have called Boise, Idaho home since 2019 and we are grateful to be a part of the
Treasure Valley community. I obtained my Bachelor of Science from California Polytechnic State
University, San Luis Obispo in architectural engineering and hold professional engineering licenses in Idaho and California.
Over my career I have gained experience in structural design and analysis for wide variety of project types across the Western United States including residential, commercial, hospitality, industrial,
healthcare and even stadiums.
I have experience managing projects with budgets ranging from a few
thousand dollars up to over $500 million from initial concept through construction and for the last few years I have had the opportunity to work on many high profile and technically complex projects
throughout the Treasure Valley and the rest of Idaho.
I enjoy helping my clients come up with creative solutions to structural problems without obvious
answers. To me, structural engineering is exciting because it is both technical and creative. There are no one size fits all solutions and it up to me to leverage my experience and knowledge and work with my clients to find the best solutions for them.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family which often includes going for walks on the
greenbelt or trying new restaurants or getting out of town to go camping. You will also often find me down at the Boise Whitewater Park surfing the river wave.

I’m a Utah native, born and raised in Cache Valley. I really like the rural area up north and the general feeling of openness that comes with the state of Utah. I attended Utah State University and earned my master’s degree in structural engineering in 2017. I have since obtained my professional engineering license in the state of Utah.
I’m privileged to have engineered a variety of projects throughout my career. I’ve worked on smaller residential buildings, multi-family apartments, million square foot warehouses, multi-level offices, and industrial projects. Some of my favorite jobs are smaller individual improvements: a mechanical platform here, a new roof unit there, adding a beam, taking away a column, etc.
I enjoy these jobs because they present a unique challenge that involves various existing constraints. You have to understand how to design it, build it, and how to do that in a creative way.
I’ve learned that structural engineering is more than just being able to design things to code. You must understand what the client’s needs are and how to best fulfill them while balancing a budget and the building process. Getting to know clients and working with them to make their dreams a physical reality is one of the highlights of my job.
I currently live in Salt Lake with my wife and kids. We enjoy taking care of our garden and our chickens. I enjoy a good run and bike around the community as well as hiking and camping. When we aren’t outside, I enjoy video games with my kids and reading with my wife.
