For 20 years, Auerbach Engineering Corporation (AEC) has been a leading consulting firm providing Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, and Environmental Planning services to clients throughout the northern Sierra Nevada region. In 1998, Walter R. Auerbach, PE, started AEC with just two other colleagues. After experiencing rapid initial growth, Walter purchased Hale-Tippin, a leading engineering and surveying firm that worked on prominent projects in Tahoe City and North Lake Tahoe. The company quickly expanded and was contracted for the surveying and engineering of the development at Northstar, the Village at Squaw Valley, the Lakeside Trail, the Commons Beach Development, and more. We attribute our success to the effective congruence of our Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, and Environmental Planning departments. AEC also puts high value in hiring the right individuals who love the Tahoe region and are dedicated to serving the community. Our ability to provide expert care to each project is a result of learning that growth needs to be deliberate, which enables us to balance our public and private work effectively. Our size and value placed on communication allow us to maintain close relationships between our clients, project managers, and professional staff members.

What We're About

One part of our mission is to sustain and cultivate our relationships with the local community. We strive to maintain a significant presence locally, doing projects that are visible and important to the area. We love the people that we work with and the many individuals we have come to know through our business. The leaders at AEC are also leaders in the region. We are involved in numerous community leadership roles in the North Lake Tahoe area including the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation Board of Directors, the Board of the Tahoe City Recreation Association, and the Tahoe Basin Design Review. Our President, Project Managers, and Planner have over 100 years of combined experience in engineering and planning. With AEC, you are getting more than technical expertise - you are getting real people who care about the Lake Tahoe region and its many communities.

A Word From Our President

As we enter our 21st year of business, I want to give thanks to our talented staff, to the professionals we work with, to the inspiration provided by the unparalleled beauty of our location, and to our clients who continue to support us. We are truly blessed to live and work in this place, alongside others who share the passion for Lake Tahoe.

This business, like many others, is built on relationships. We have built those relationships by being active members of our community. Being active means being involved not only through work, but through what we do day-to-day in our lives. Our commitment to making this a better place to live is reflected in the projects we take on, and in the pride we take in doing them well. As you look through our work on this website, we hope that message comes through.

The past has been a truly rewarding experience in relationships, and I look forward to the future projects, future staff members, and future clients who will enrich that experience further. We are all better for the experiences we have had, and we will continue to grow with the community in the years to come

Gratefully Yours,

Wally Auerbach, P.E.
