The SET Difference

The specific industries that we thrive in and exceed excellence in are hospitality, mountain terrain, and resort development. We serve areas including Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Montana, and Arizona. However, we are more than happy to assist with custom projects upon request. Every client, their needs, and their site is unique. From marketability to safety cost, and operational efficiency, the civil engineering team at SET will maximize layout and site infrastructure to meet the objectives of the project. Establishing positive and long-term relationships with our private clients, and continuing to refine our knowledge of federal, state, and local codes and requirements are just a couple of the advantages we have over other engineering companies in Durango.  

Civil engineering is the foundation and backbone of our business. From infrastructure to land development and beyond, we not only service our clients but the communities they reside in. We take a special responsibility and ownership in every detail of our work and are proud to deliver high-functioning, beautiful, versatile, and efficient projects year after year.

Our streamlined approach to taking projects from conception through design, approval, and construction was created to ensure that we can deliver objectives and expectations to our clients and follow through with them.

The relationships we have forged with private clients and community stakeholders is what sets us apart from other engineering firms. To learn more about what we do, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team and schedule an appointment.
