About Us

Utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and the expertise of our highly experienced team, Farr West Engineering provides civil, environmental and electrical engineering services. As a small company, we are able to provide affordable solutions without compromising the quality of service that we are known for among our clients.

The success of Farr West Engineering is a result of our commitment to each and every client and project.

In 2001, we opened the doors to Farr West Engineering (Farr West) in Reno, Nevada, dedicating ourselves to providing the highest quality civil, environmental and electrical engineering. Over a decade later, we remain as devoted as ever, staying true to those core values and work ethic that have contributed to the success of our clients and projects.

In 2012 Farr West Engineering acquired Chilton Engineering & Surveying in Elko, Nevada. Chilton Engineering has been serving municipal and private clients throughout Nevada for over a century with a succession of proprietorships by several renowned engineers and surveyors. This strategic acquisition has made our company stronger and more versatile by enhancing our resources, our client base, and our expertise.  Farr West also owns Sierra Controls, LLC, a Nevada based company with over 40 years of experience serving utility clients throughout the State.  Together, we are one of the largest and most experienced groups of professionals serving municipalities in the area.  Through our combined companies, clients have access to Farr West Engineering’s civil and environmental engineering services as well as Sierra Controls’ expertise with SCADA and control systems.  To learn more about Sierra Controls, please visit their website at www.sierracontrols.com.

Today, Farr West employs 50 professionals that work together as a team to seamlessly service clients throughout Nevada and northern California in civil and environmental engineering, surveying, water rights, and construction management. The diverse services offered by Farr West cover all aspects of a project, including feasibility, design, permitting, implementation and inspection. Our greatest strength is municipal engineering and public works, where we have designed and managed numerous large and complex projects for the public sector.
