Thanks to all of our clients, subcontractors, and teaming partners, who have been working hard along side SHN during this pandemic. We appreciate your continuing trust in our work and your willingness to adapt with us as we find safer ways to perform fieldwork, travel to sites, and collaborate on designs and plans.
Because SHN is deemed an essential business, we closed our offices to the public but we continued working and now approximately half of our staff are working primarily from home. If you have had any delays in reaching us, do not hesitate to call our personal cell phones and of course, we always check email frequently. SHN will soon be submitting our re-opening plans to the agencies that have jurisdiction over our seven offices.
As we move forward, you can count on SHN to make it through these tough economic times ahead. Many of our staff worked through the 2008-09 recession, and while it was far from pleasant, we know what we have to do so that SHN can continue providing the engineering, geosciences, surveying, planning and environmental services that you rely on.
Thank you again for your support of SHN!

We have new members on our team roster! They are Steve Beukelman, Kirk Vodopals, and Mike Malone. Steve Beukelman is a chemical engineer with expertise in water treatment systems, water quality, and WDR permit compliance; he and his family moved from the Bay Area to enjoy the North State rural lifestyle. Kirk Vodopals has 15 years of experience in natural resource management and restoration, gained during employment in the forest products industry. Having passed the FE exam, Kirk plans to take the PE exam as soon as he can. Mike Malone is our Eureka office summer intern, who is studying engineering at Humboldt State University. Mike is working part-time until finals are over, and then full-time during the summer, which will allow him to see a wide variety of municipal, site development, and environmental engineering projects.
A career is an individual’s journey of learning and work, and whether SHN is a quick side-trip or a long and rewarding segment depends on the similarities of our future paths. SHN’s path is one that values enhancing our communities and creating a rewarding environment for employees and shareholders. We value team work, life-long learning, and family, health and work balance.
SHN geologists investigated a known fault system to determine potential seismic hazards to the dam. Trenchscan technology was used to record images that were later digitally merged to create a single image of the entire trenched area.
Beginning in 2012, SHN’s Biologist of Record managed a crew of 30 biologists that identified nesting locations of birds, prepared and implemented salmonid relocation and dewatering plans, conducted Northern Spotted Owl surveys, and prepared daily and quarterly reports documenting the interactions between construction activities and regulated biological resources.
Since 1995, SHN has performed environmental site investigation, hydrology studies, surveys, permitting, remediation design, and infrastructure evaluation and repair designs at 46 sites for CAL FIRE, the California state agency for real estate services (DGS-RESD), and the Division of the State Architect.
With Ann Baker Landscape Architecture, SHN assisted in the design of the Museum’s new outdoor nature education facility, incorporating stormwater wetlands and bioretention areas, and encouraging groundwater recharge with infiltration trenches and permeable pavements.
“The Peninsula Light Company and its members will continue to benefit from your efforts long into the future due to the project’s sustainability. On my part, I would like to express my congratulation and gratitude for the professionalism, effort, and persistence you exhibited during the execution of this challenging HDD project. I would be proud to work alongside any of your crew members and staff that brought success to this project.”
