Structural Engineering

CMA Engineers is a structural engineering firm …

CMA Engineers has assisted numerous municipalities in the planning, permitting, funding, design, and construction engineering services on a variety of bridges, culverts, retaining walls, and ancillary highway structures. The firm offers structural engineering services to municipalities and state departments of transportation for highway, railroad, and building structures using design-bid-build and design-build project delivery. In addition to our focus on transportation structures, the firm provides design and construction services to private sector clients for conventional commercial, residential, municipal, and institutional structures.

The transportation infrastructure that we use today was largely constructed in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Major repairs and reconstruction have not been a high political priority until recent years, in many communities, and the bridges don’t last forever. It is critical that our roadways and bridges be reconstructed in a prioritized, focused, and cost-effective manner so that our infrastructure can continue to adequately serve the public in a safe and efficient manner. In the future, maintaining what we have will likely be as important as building new facilities.
