STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING

 

MEI’s passion is creating structural systems for buildings of all shapes, sizes, and complexities and civil site and infrastructure designs for architectural projects. In addition to traditional structural and civil engineering services, we offer enhanced expertise in seismic, wind, vibration, existing building, performance-based, and blast engineering and site strategies for low-impact design, site infrastructure planning, and excavation shoring.
