Shawn Weedon Milan

Shawn grew up in Southern California (Ventura County) then went to the desert to attend the University of Arizona (in Tucson, not ASU in Tempe). He worked full time in order to pay for his education and graduated in 1998. He then returned to the Southern California area to begin his career in geotechnical engineering. His experience encompasses a wide variety of projects for residential, commercial and public works clients. Shawn has been team member on projects that include low- to high-rise office buildings, multi-family residential developments, large-scale land developments, life-science campuses, parking structures, public/private school facilities, utilities, reservoirs, and waterfront structures. He also managed testing and observation services for drilled and driven piles, soil nail walls, soldier pile/tieback walls, ground modifications and grading operations. His experience and knowledge of geotechnical engineering contribute to the quality of his engineering analyses in slope stability, liquefaction, shallow/deep foundation design, lateral pile design, and pavement design. Shawn has the reputation for providing creative geotechnical solutions and maintaining outstanding service for projects with critical schedules and budgets.

Shawn also stays active in the community. He taught the geotechnical portion of the Professional Engineer Review Course for several years, presents basic geology to elementary school classes, gust speaks in classes for San Diego State University, and other organizations. Shawn is also active on the Storm Water Committee for the BIA and helps manage the Architect/Engineer/Geologist/Contractor Softball League (since 2008) that includes about 40 San Diego firms in the construction industry.

When Shawn has free time, he enjoys watching his youngest daughter play soccer, spending time with his family, playing softball in his community, attending classic and exotic car shows, exploring off-road trails in his Land Cruiser, and traveling internationally. Shawn has been lucky to explore Costa Rica, Canada, Mexico, Poland, Switzerland, France, Italy, Portugal, Great Britain, Spain, French Polynesia and Iceland.
