Beckmann Engineering and Design and Beckmann Construction have served the greater Bay Area since 1989, performing projects both in the private and government sector. We are located in Novato, California, about 40 minutes north of San Francisco.

Beckmann Engineering and Design assists its clients with civil and structural engineering design, as well as architectural design.  We strive to streamline the planning and permitting process, while taking into account the detailed wishes of the client, and the ever-growing list of demands placed on a project by the building codes and local building departments .

Beckmann Construction holds both General Engineering (A) and General Building (B) Contractor licenses. We engage in all manner of construction related services, ranging from simple maintenance to new construction.  We are often retained for projects which are especially challenging or which require expertise within multiple trades .

Many of our clients draw upon our Design/ Build capabilities. We have a history of successful projects where factors such as cost, completion time, and final quality were greatly enhanced by using the Design/Build model. We have also benefited from the experience of building projects designed by others, and designing projects to later be built by others.

Many of our construction projects start at the foundation or ground level. Our tight access excavation and drilling machines combined with our various size dump trucks bring efficiency to a variety of sites. Our past heavy construction experience in tunneling makes us feel right at home "in the dirt”.

It is not unusual for us to continue with framing, plumbing, electrical, and finish work to complete a project. Please see our “Letters of Reference” page detailing the experiences of past clients.
