About Us

At MCE we offer practical and diverse structural solutions to meet our clients' present and future needs. Our team members possess specialized training and experience in various structural engineering solutions and materials. They leverage this expertise to successfully execute over a thousand projects annually. 

Founded by Ray Miller in 1978, the world of structural engineering was vastly different than it is today. The tools of the trade were limited to drafting tables, slide rules, and simple calculators. These traditional tools have largely been replaced by computer aided drafting, building information modeling, and structural analysis software. But the experience and engineering judgement remain the most important factor in our designs. For over 45 years, our engineers have continuously honed their understanding of building performance, allowing us to provide efficient, effective designs even as code requirements have grown more stringent.
