These projects include both new construction and removal/replacement projects.
We routinely accomplish our roof investigations and designs on or ahead of the client’s schedule. We pride ourselves on never having a project not be able to be bid or built due to a loss of project funding due to a delay in completion of bid documents by MEC&A.
In addition MEC&A provides investigation, design, and construction observation services in the areas of structural, civil, and environmental engineering (asbestos sampling and abatement design) and mold consulting.
We are extremely mindful of our Client’s budget limitations. Our projects are routinely designed within budget. Cost estimates are prepared at each submittal stage in order to keep designs on budget.
The firm has enjoyed a high rate of repeat business from its clients. Multiple projects have been accomplished for the General Services Administration, Board of Regents, Technical and Adult Education, Georgia Departments of Defense, Labor, Corrections, and Juvenile Justice, private Corporations, and Private Individuals.
