Who We Are

Summit Engineering was founded to address the need for clear big picture thinking integrated with attention to technical details and absolute follow through.

Eric Nelson, PE
Partner at Summit Engineering is a native to Durango, Colorado. He graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University. He has 10 years of experience in civil and structural engineering and is a Licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado.

His passion for communication and building relationships reinforces his engineering and project management skills. Eric assures that the technical aspects of all jobs are carried out successfully, while maintaining a strong emphasis on meeting the vision and goals of each client. He is an avid outdoorsman, and most often can be found skiing or mountain biking when not behind his computer or in the field. He, his wife, and young son live in Durango, Colorado.

He has worked locally for Licensed Architects and Professional Engineers for the last 11 years. His attention to detail, great knowledge and experience in the field, and ability to see three dimensionally helps from design conception through final construction documents. Travis lives with his wife and four boys in Durango, CO. In his spare time, Travis helps pastor a local church and is a cycling nut from road, to single speed, to cyclocross.
We like bikes at Summit Engineering. We take part in local events, races, and clubs. If you see us out there in our Summit Kits, say hi and let us get to know you.
