Industries Served

Consulting Engineering (Civil | Structural)

Consulting engineering in civil and structural fields involves providing specialized expertise, designing safe and efficient structures, navigating regulatory requirements, and managing projects from conception to completion. These licensed professionals play a vital role in shaping the built environment and ensuring the safety and sustainability of infrastructure projects.

Miscellaneous designs for contractors encompass a diverse set of plans and solutions tailored to the unique challenges of construction projects. These designs address temporary structures, site logistics, safety, access, environmental considerations, and innovative construction methods, contributing to the overall success and sustainability of site plans and land development projects.

Market and competition analysis involves a comprehensive examination of the industry landscape, customer behavior, competitors, and external factors. This information is crucial for developing effective strategies, staying competitive, and making informed business decisions.

An expert witness is an individual with specialized knowledge and expertise in a particular field who is called upon to provide professional opinions and testimony in legal proceedings. These experts play a crucial role in helping the court or tribunal understand complex technical or scientific matters. Their testimony assists a judge or jury, in making informed decisions based on their professional analysis and interpretation of evidence. Expert witnesses are expected to be impartial, objective, and adhere to high ethical standards while providing their expert opinions in legal matters.

Precast Concrete

The precast concrete industry involves the production of concrete components that are cast and cured in a controlled environment before being transported to construction sites for assembly. This method offers several advantages over traditional cast-in-place construction, including increased efficiency, quality control, and reduced construction time. Precast concrete products range from blocks and panels to complex architectural elements and structural components. MCE specializes in buried precast concrete infrastructure and structures such as concrete pipe, boxes, manholes, tanks, and vaults. The specification of precast concrete continues to grow as the construction industry embraces the benefits of off-site manufacturing and the versatility of precast concrete products.

Designing and planning a precast concrete plant involves careful consideration of site selection, layout, casting bed design, batching systems, formwork, curing methods, quality control, environmental aspects, automation/robotics, and safety measures. A well-designed precast concrete plant can optimize production processes, ensure product quality, and contribute to overall operational efficiency.

The procurement and maintenance of production equipment and accessories require a strategic approach that encompasses lifecycle cost analysis, supplier relationships, preventive maintenance planning, technology integration, and adherence to safety and environmental standards. A well-managed process contributes to operational efficiency, product quality, and the overall success of manufacturing operations.

A precast concrete gravity wall is a structure made of precast concrete components that relies on its weight and mass for stability. Unlike reinforced walls, this type of wall uses the inherent weight of the precast concrete units to resist lateral soil pressure. The components are manufactured off-site, typically in a controlled environment, and then transported and assembled at the construction site. The method offers advantages in terms of construction speed, quality control, and durability.

Cast-in-Place Construction

Cast-in-place construction involves pouring and molding concrete directly at the construction site. It provides flexibility in design, addresses structural strength, and is adaptable to various site conditions. While it may take more time and labor compared to precast methods, the method’s advantages include customization and the ability to address specific on-site challenges.
