Monte Stott

A licensed engineer in California since 1989, Monte Stott has performed the structural design of over 3,000 new builldings, renovations, additions, foundation repairs, seismic upgrades and other projects. Monte’s expertise covers the breadth of modern construction methods including wood, reinforced concrete, cmu blocks, steel, sips panels, unreinforced masonry and brick.

Prior to founding Monte Stott & Associates, Monte served on a diverse range of engineering assignments such as the Hubble space telescope (with Lockheed), post-tensioned bridges (with the Swedish Department of Transportation), and a nuclear waste processing facility (with Bechtel). A younger and more fit (though more sleep deprived) Monte was also a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Seabees.

In his spare time, Monte coaches youth baseball teams.
