AEC’s Award Winning success [ Mountain Living - Home of the Year | PSMJ - Circle of Excellence | Firehouse - Fire Station of the Year Gold Award comes from over 25 years of experience providing quality design services and focuses on the special engineering needs of mountain towns such as Steamboat Springs, Vail, Aspen, Telluride, Montrose, Dillon, Frisco, Breckenridge, and Glenwood Springs. 

AEC strives to effectively target our designs to meet the needs and construction budget of our clients while still placing an emphasis on architectural integration and constructability. This process requires a close working relationship between the design and construction teams and results in complete, coordinated, and cost-effective MEP designs. The ability to understand the intricacies of the built environment as well as the needs of each individual contributing to the project is an integral part of the services we offer: 


  • For architects, we provide detailed coordination with the site, interiors, aesthetics, and architecture of the building. 

  • For owners, we provide an important balance between expert system definition to ensure a functional building and budget considerations of the systems we specify. 

  • For general contractors, we provide accurate drawings for the most competitive pricing. 

  • For sub-contractors, we are accessible and committed to seeing the project through to successful completion. 


Coordination is a hallmark of our business, throughout both the design and construction processes. We relish the opportunity to stay involved during the building phase to help ensure a successful completion to every project.
