Shanks Engineering and Construction, Corp. is a family operated and family focused Construction Company. While we specialize in Custom Home Building and Custom Home Renovations, we offer a full compliment of Construction Services to meet all Residential and Commercial needs.
I am the principal owner of SEC, a company I founded in 2008. I hold a BS in Civil Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and have continued to supplement my education with classes at WPI and Northeastern.
Prior to opening the doors at SEC, I had more than 12 years of professional experience in the Engineering and Construction trade. My experience includes working as a Union Laborer on the Big Dig, overseeing large scale projects as a Field Engineer, managing Commercial build-outs, renovating homes of all ages, and building new homes from the ground up.
Through the years, we have and continue to take on a diverse portfolio of projects. I am a firm believer that knowledge is power and by maintaining a strong diverse portfolio I am constantly learning and educating myself in all aspects of the trade.
FANTASTIC doesn’t even begin to describe how great Dan Shanks and his team of highly skilled and competent contractors are with regards to the exceptional workmanship they put into every project. Dan expertly walks you through the process from the floor plans and architectural drafts to a precise estimate that is always competitive and hard to beat. I have not met a more professional engineer and construction manager in the 20 years since I have been a home owner. Dan Shanks is tops!

Dan Shanks is the consummate professional: prompt, highly skilled, articulate and well educated, words I rarely associate with construction companies, but that is why Dan is exceptional. As a trained engineer, he helps you envision the possibilities in your home while keeping in mind your budget. He walked my husband and me through a significant renovation of our new home (gutted the kitchen, basement and bathrooms) offering various designs and patterns, always attuned to keeping within our budget. His workers are highly skilled and clean
up after themselves! We have highly recommended Dan to all of our friends, and will use him for all of our future projects. In addition to his professionalism, Dan is a wonderful family man who treats all his clients like family.
