B.S., Structural Engineering, Colorado State University (2014)
Branden Sampaio has been working in Colorado’s structural engineering industry for the past 10 years. As a young professional, he had the chance to gain his initial professional experience for a small engineering consulting firm, where he first got a taste for the design of high-end custom residences.
He spent the next 5 years working for Oldcastle Infrastructure, one of North America’s largest manufacturers of utility products and construction accessories for the telecommunications, energy, transportation, building structures and water markets. While there, he had the chance to design many underground utility structures, box culverts, drainage structures, and engineered buildings for public use. He also had the opportunity to directly manage a team of engineers, drafters, and quality control technicians. This experience taught Branden a great deal about project leadership.
For the past several years, Branden’s experience with timber, concrete, and steel have aided him in the design of several luxury homes in Steamboat Springs and the surrounding areas while working for Anthem. His passion and drive allow him to produce complex structural drawings while working hand in hand with contractors and architects to ensure a job goes smoothly from start to finish.
Branden and his wife are avid mountain athletes in their spare time and are actively passing on their favorite hobbies to their one year old daughter who already loves nothing more in the world than a good pile of snow.
