Steve Brackman


Associate, Hamilton

Structural engineers play a vital role in the well-being and safety of not only built structures, but of all those who inhabit those structures. As long as people live in buildings more substantial than tents, structural engineering will play an increasingly important role in people’s lives.”

Steve has been with the firm’s Montana division for over two decades, providing design solutions for custom residential and log structure projects in locations all over the U.S. and Caribbean. His work has also included unique commercial projects with architecture-forward designs and exposed structural elements.

Within the DCI family, he’s known for his flexibility, versatility and friendly smile, something that carries over naturally to his work and daily client interactions.

Like most engineers, his passion for the built environment was cultivated early through Legos® and Lincoln Logs®. This carried through high school mathematics and eventually college, where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s in Civil Engineering through Montana State University.
