McGinniss & Fleming Engineering provides expertise in a full range of building systems. 

 

We develop plans and specifications which define construction projects and serve as the basis of construction contracts. We oversee construction and provide contract administration services. We are comfortable with, and adapt to, the wide variety of project delivery methods which may be employed under various circumstances.

 

We assist owners to develop future projects with analysis, programing and budgeting.  

 

Much of our work includes highly technical renovation and retrofit projects requiring the utmost attention to detail, and the expertise to develop solutions which work within the parameters of an existing facility. This often includes renovation in an occupied facility which must remain operational throughout construction. MFE is best suited to your most engineering intensive or time critical projects, where professionalism is required and valued.

 

The following list highlights scope for which we are frequently responsible.
