At MCE we offer practical, diverse, structural solutions that will serve our clients' needs for today and tomorrow.

History

Miller Consulting Engineers, Inc. (MCE) was founded in 1978 by Raymond T. Miller in Portland, Oregon. For over 35 years we have focused on designing practical, diverse, structural solutions that will serve our clients' needs for today and tomorrow. MCE's reputation for providing innovative, practical, and timely solutions has grown throughout the Western United States.

When our firm started, the world of modern structural engineering was quite different than it is today. The tools of the trade were limited to a drafting table, a slide rule, or perhaps a simple calculator, and, of course, experience and training.  Although the drafting table and slide rule have been replaced by the CAD program and the spreadsheet, experience and training has been a fundemental key to our success.

Today, we have new tools such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Finite Element Modeling, and structural frame analysis that provide rapid design for more complicated structures. We have a greater understanding of the principles of building performance, and much more stringent code requirements to contend with.

With these tools, the value continues to be from our highly trained staff and experience. The experience and training of our engineers remains a core value; as important today as it was over 30 years ago.

Our commitment and dedication to continued professional education gives our staff a relevant and up-to-date understanding of today's design requirements providing our clients with the best solutions available.

The founder of our firm, Ray Miller, retired in 2004 and spends much of his time giving back to the community through the Masonry Society and other engineering related non-profit organizations.

Awards

MCE's growth and reputation are the result of individual effort and staff teamwork. By applying the latest technology and proven methods in a responsive manner, the greatest benefit is acheived for the client. We take pride in the teamwork and expertise that has earned us regional and national recognition.
