MEP is our DNA

Our singular focus is the design, construction, and management of Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) systems for large, sophisticated organizations. We engineer the central nervous systems of institutions of high acclaim and even higher accomplishment — organizations who can’t afford to risk their facilities to lesser providers. They know as we do, that truly it’s what’s inside that counts.

Trusted by the Best

Our practice has deep experience serving apex organizations who operate at the very top of their field; esteemed universities, groundbreaking medical facilities and leading science and technology centers all rely on our sustainable, state-of-the-art MEP solutions and advanced modeling, management and construction technologies to keep their facilities humming quietly along. To be trusted by these respected organizations is our highest honor. What they do literally is rocket science, and we share their passion for precision, innovation and expertise — and their intolerance for imperfection. What happens within their walls changes the world, and we're proud to be a silent partner.


Home to 30 million people and 50+ Fortune 500 companies, the State of Texas boasts the 10th largest economy in the world. It’s a world power unto itself, and it’s more than just our home — it’s our proving ground. Our senior staff of engineers and designers from offices in Houston, Dallas and Austin regularly deploy an extensive array of expertise and experience unmatched in the field, subduing complex MEP challenges as large and diverse as the population of this great state. If it can be solved here, it can be solved anywhere.

It’s apparent in every system we engineer, revealed in the loyalty and longevity of our staff and noticeable in the hands-on approach of our leadership. Completing the assignment is the job, doing it right is the mission. Always recognizing that good is good, but great is better. It’s a commitment that comes standard with every engagement. You’ll see it the first time you work with us. And every time after that.
