Residential Engineering

When it comes to building a home, we make it easy for you. From initial planning to rezoning and permitting, surveying to water resources design, we have you covered.

Commercial Engineering

Commercial building can be complicated and confusing, so we make it simple. We handle it all : planning, zoning, feasibility , construction management, document preparation, surveying, water resource planning as well as infrastructure engineering and civil engineering.

Tenant improvements

When your tenants have special requirements, we do what's necessary to configure your rental space to their particular needs, or as part of a lease agreement.

Seismic Upgrades

Living where we do means living with earthquakes. We help our clients ensure their structure is as safe as possible with seismic retrofitting, making the more resistant to seismic activity, ground motion, or soil failure due to these earthquakes.


More than a decade ago, the founders of Shop Engineering set out to establish a professional services engineering outfit

that would provide an expansive range of services to meet the world’s architectural needs. In spring of 2005, the company was founded in beautiful Bozeman, Montana and the principals began working with architects and contractors on projects there as well as in Wyoming and Colorado. After working hard and seeing success from our efforts, we expanded by developing strong and productive work relationships with clients all over the American Southwest in places like Utah, Nevada, and California. Two years after launching, principal engineer and co-founder Josh Gliko opened a small satellite office in San Diego and the Shop Engineering client base has been steadily expanding ever since. Optimizing the synthesis of form, function, and economy is the primary objective of every project that Shop Engineering undertakes.

We pride ourselves? on the implementation of a fundamental understanding of the behavior of the materials used in the various residential, commercial, and industrial structures that we design. Quality project management and consulting also play a vital role in our approach to achieving safe, reliable, and fully integrated engineering and design solutions that are aligned with the needs and desires of the clients we serve. We use the latest technology and software to ensure that our work maintains the highest standards in precision and accuracy and we make every effort to look for ways to cut costs and save money while still utilizing the highest quality materials and the most innovative design and engineering techniques in order to deliver a finished product that either meets or, even better, exceeds the expectations of our valuable clients. Simply put, we are a small family doing big work and we love what we do.



Josh is one of the principal engineers at Shop

Engineering and co-founded the firm in 2005. He earned a Civil Engineering degree from the College of Engineering at Montana State University in 2000 and spent 3 years performing structural design work in both residential and commercial capacities for a civil/structural engineering firm. Josh eventually made the move to San Diego and became a licensed engineering professional while continuing his structural design work for a local firm and specializing in commercial and educational buildings. After 4 years with the San Diego firm and having sufficiently “cut his teeth” in the world of structural design, Josh decided it was time to branch out on his own. He started Shop Engineering in spring of 2005 and has been working hard to make the firm a leader in the professional engineering services sector.
