Value for our customer
MEI specializes in designing and constructing key components of infrastructure that are a necessity of our existence. Our expertise in roadways, bridges, water supply and sewers helps create the basic framework for how we live, work and play.
One key issue that we stress at MEI is that better infrastructure is not necessarily the most expensive infrastructure, We strive to provide cost-effective solutions to wide ranging engineering and environmental challenges to bring value to our clients. Most projects have budget and schedule limitations, and we strive to balance these limitations while still achieving the client’s quality standards.
Respecting our natural environment
As fellow stewards of mother earth, we have a responsibility to diligently care for our natural environment. We provide environmental services (such as stormwater design and analysis, containment, and ecological services) that will allow for our client’s projects to comply with the best practices for their region. Even when projects do not require specific environmental controls, as a company we maintain a responsibility to make sure that we do not foster procedures or events that are detrimental to the natural environment.
Respecting our work environment
We strive to create an atmosphere where our employees are treated fairly, and they have opportunities to grow and pursue their professional goals.
