Shelton & Bacon is a Design and Engineering Firm located in Truckee, California. Shelton & Bacon is the successor firm to Shelton & Associates, which was founded in 1979 by David Shelton. The current owner and principal of Shelton & Bacon is Eric Bacon, who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the business; David Shelton is involved with the company as a part time consultant and advisor. We have been involved with the design or analysis of over 3000 projects in the Sierras and Lake Tahoe area. For over 30 years we have specialized in new and remodeled residences and small commercial buildings. In an area where structure and design are intertwined, Shelton & Bacon offers the services of a professional engineer and licensed designer. Our projects have included everything from modest remodels of just a few square feet to the most opulent residences of up to 16,000 square feet and everything in between.
We offer our clients a full range of services including civil and architectural engineering, design, agency processing and advice, BMP design, hand and computer aided drafting, energy calculations, preparation of specifications, site plan preparation, contractor referral, bid and contract assistance, and construction observation.
Why use us?
We have done extensive work in Incline Village, Tahoe City, South Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Northstar, the Sierra Valley, and everywhere in between. We understand the design complexities associated with our extreme environment. We feel we offer a comprehensive and high quality product at a competitive price. We are committed to providing a high level of customer service. We are committed to return your emails and voice messages in a timely manner. If your contractor calls with a question, we strive to get an answer to them the next day.
Shelton & Bacon offers a complete residential design service under one roof. We have a licensed residential designer and licensed civil engineer in house. We do everything necessary to obtain a building permit with the exception of boundary surveys and geotechnical investigations (should you need either one, contact us for more information). Our ability to complete the entire project in-house adds value by eliminating costly communication errors and delays between separate consultants.
