Shaun kirk, P.e.


As one of the Managing Principals of the Ensight Haynes Whaley Austin office, Shaun has 20+ years of experience as a licensed structural engineer in Texas and is responsible for meeting and exceeding client expectations on every project.  He earned dual degrees in architecture and civil engineering from Texas Tech University; allowing him to tap into aspects of both to assist in achieving the visions of his clients. Shaun thrives on the design process, bringing experience, expertise, and innovation to any project large or small.


Shaun is inspired by his wife, two children and one barky schnauzer. Outside the office, Shaun enjoys his family and sharing a laugh or thoughtful moment watching shows together.  When the weather is right wakeboarding is his passion, and when less so he finds games of all types to be a joy.

“I truly love what I do and seeing a client’s design come to fruition. Providing the design, service, and respect that you would want provided to you. It is the golden rule of design and construction to me, and if you ask any of my family or friends, I have high expectations.”
