About us

At MCE we offer practical, diverse structural solutions to serve our clients' needs now and well into the future. Our staff members have specialized training and experience in a wide array of structural engineering solutions and materials and use it to provide the technical expertise necessary to successfully execute well over a thousand projects every year.
 
When Ray Miller founded MCE in 1978, the world of structural engineering was very different than it is today. The tools of the trade were limited to drafting tables, slide rules, and simple calculators. These tools have largely been replaced by computer aided drafting, building information modeling, and structural analysis software, but experience and engineering judgement remain the most important factor in our designs. For over 40 years, engineers at MCE have been refining our understanding of building performance, allowing us to provide efficient, effective designs even as code requirements have become much more stringent.
