Brent R. Shannon, P.E.

Associate Maine Region

Mr. Shannon has over 15 years of structural engineering experience serving laboratory, office, hospitality, and high-rise residential clients. He has led project teams in master planning, design, contract drawing documentation, and construction administration for projects requiring complex and efficient coordination and fast-tracked schedules. He has developed and honed the necessary collaborative skills in project management over the past 10 years, exhibiting quality leadership in an essential role for some of our top Boston ventures including SCAPE USA, the CambridgeSide Redevelopment, and the Encore Boston Harbor Resort. When Brent isn’t engineering, he can be found in the mountains skiing, on the course golfing, or enjoying the outdoors with family.

“I pride myself in my ability to look beyond the challenges of the structure when collaborating with the design and construction team. At the end of the day, the main goal is to deliver the best and most cost effective building as a whole for the client.”
