From Our Clients

Santa Cruz METRO appreciates everything MME has done to assist us with closing out our MetroBase Project. We could not have got the last lingering tasks moving, or kept them moving, without Phil Doody and Dale Hendsbee staying engaged through some difficult times. You’ve gone above and beyond with submittal reviews, RFI’s, project documentation, site visits, and communicating with contractors. Very thorough and detailed work. It’s been great to have you on our team. Santa Cruz METRO thanks you, and I personally can’t thank you enough!

Erron Alvey

Special Projects Director, Santa Cruz METRO

I've worked with Mesiti-Miller for years in my own career as a Civil Engineering consultant. They have great leadership and strong team of engineers. I'm quick to go to them with any needs that go beyond my own skill set.

Zach Graff

Application Engineer & Instructor with CAD Masters

Rodney and his team of Civil Engineers at MME provided the design and permitting assistance for a new driveway at my future home site in the Santa Cruz Mountains. With strong technical knowledge, clean and prompt communication, and reasonable fees, MME was a pleasure to work with. Getting a project through the County permitting process can be a challenge, and I was thankful to have Rodney and his expertise on the design team.

David Glucs

Home Owner

I wish to thank you for your professionalism and support. Your focus to help us work through this troubling facility issue has provided us a more comfortable state of mind to the safety of these standards and the directional pathways for future modernization. We have valued your work and guidance to making sure the light standards are sound, functional and safe. Your firm is high on the FUHSD's radar screen as a trusted consultant and engineering company we would look to. Thanks for all the help.

Brad Metheany

Coordinator of Athletics and Facilities, Fremont Union High School District

I have worked with MME on various projects since 1990, usually in our capacity as Architect-of-Record with MME in consultancy to us. MME's integrity, professionalism, and leadership skills have enabled their firm to grow into one of the most reliable, capable, and prolific engineering firms in the Monterey Bay region.

Dan Silvernail

President, Daniel Matthew Silvernail Architects

I have had the pleasure to work with MME over the course of my practice in Santa Cruz of more than 30 years. I have worked with many great engineering companies but they are at the top of my list for high professional standards and a keen awareness of the art of engineering judgment and the science of precise analysis. Please see the vast list of projects they have completed that have withstood the test of time and an active seismic zone.

Dennis Diego

Architect AIA

MME's help has been invaluable. They have a great eye for detail and a healthy skepticism of contractors’ intentions and abilities. Their reports were timely and thorough. We hope to work with MME in the future.

Michael Hopper, PE

Port Engineer Santa Cruz Port District

As a general contractor building on the peninsula for the past 25 years, we have been using MME for all of our residential engineering work for the past five years. They have been a pleasure to work with, flexible and willing to make changes to accommodate our customer’s needs and our needs. They have been very creative for us on a number of occasions and have always been able to make site visits when we needed them or email us changes to drawings on very short notice. Recently they stood up for us in a dispute with a local building department and prevailed. We plan to continue using them going forward and would highly recommend them to other residential and commercial customers. We highly recommend MME. They are our "go to guys".

I have worked with MME on more than a dozen construction projects since 1995 including residential, commercial and institutional buildings and two bridges. As a licensed contractor since 1982, I have worked with many engineers over the years and can testify that MME is among the best. I have always found them to be knowledgeable, thorough, creative, honest and most importantly, responsive. Their responsiveness is especially valuable during the actual construction of the work when delays can be so costly to everyone involved. I have both built projects MME has designed for others and retained MME to design projects directly for me. In either case, I have always been pleased with the quality of their work and would not hesitate to recommend them. MME is as good as they get.

Rob Stuart

President, Timberworks

We used Mesiti-Miller for a remodel (2 story addition) and couldn't be more pleased. We found them very responsive. They came out for site visits, made some excellent cost saving suggestions and there were no problems going through the building department to get permits as they clearly knew code requirements. I would highly recommend them.

Tee M.

Homeowner, Palo Alto

I have recently completed my 3rd tenant improvement on my small business. Each time I have required engineering to complete the project and MME and his team have exceeded my expectations on each occasion. They have been professional, competent, and very easy to work with. I highly recommend MME to anyone with any engineering needs!

Eric Ingram

Premier Physical Therapy

On behalf of the Board of directors, fans, families and more than 600 kids who participated in Santa Cruz Little League – THANK YOU!!!!

As you know the new scoreboard is up, running and looking great. I can’t tell you how many people have commented on how “cool” the new scoreboard is – especially the kids – and lots of grown-ups too. While this project was a larger “chore” than anticipated, it would never have come to fruition without your support, patience and generosity.

Thanks again MME. I am so very appreciative of your care and kindness towards this project.

Andrea Tolaio

Santa Cruz Little League

We used Mesiti-Miller for structural engineering required by Santa Cruz County to obtain building permits to repair our home after an extreme tree strike. MME had a great working relationship with the County building department, was obviously well respected by them, and our permits were quickly approved. We would use MME again and again for future projects.

Mike & Lisa Sullivan


Our beach house is a work of art! Thank you.

Mark De Mattei

Building Contractor and Homeowner

I am thoroughly impressed by the detail and professionalism demonstrated by MME.

Jack Headley

Project Engineer, Pavex Construction Division of GraniteRock

My wife and I retained MME in June 2007 to help determine the reasons we were having so many unidentified structural problems with a custom home we had built as our retirement residence 15 years ago. The builder/contractor had made repetitive repairs during the first eleven years and then said he would not do anything further to correct the problems. MME and his staff determined the problems were due to truss related issues and prepared an extensive repair protocol that was used successfully to sue the builder and various subcontractors he employed. Since the builder waited until his 10 year liability exposure elapsed, we had to sue based on fraud. MME provided excellent structural engineering support which substantiated the fraud, and the builder wisely decided to settle the lawsuit in mediation in December 2011 rather than go to trial. We are currently using MME to assist us in working with a new contractor to make the necessary structural repairs to correct the extensive problems we have encountered during the past 15 years. Our original builder (who built over 1000 custom homes in Saratoga, Los Altos Hills and Pebble Beach) could not determine the cause of so many problems in our home even though he utilized the services of the premiere structural engineering firm in Monterey County. MME was able to identify the problem areas and did so in an expert manner. My wife and I would highly recommend MME. We did not find Mesiti-Miller to be any more expensive than other reputable engineering firms, and we believe we certainly achieved what we expected and paid for. We are very pleased.

Dan and Mary Bowman


From July 2005 to October 2007, MME, Inc. provided me with all of the engineering expertise, blueprints and city permits I required. Additionally, MME worked closely with the building contractor throughout the reconstruction of my home. MME was always very professional when working with sub-contractors, Fish & Game and soil engineers. They kept me well informed every step of the way.

I would recommend MME, Inc. to anyone.

Marti Bargas


MME are outstanding engineers. Working with MME, when I was employed by O’Neill Wetsuits LLC and Jack O’Neill, was a pleasure.

Marilyn Trimble

I have personally known MME, Inc. for several years. Growing up in the Santa Cruz area, I experienced first-hand the excellent work that MME have accomplished in the area. Their premier engineering work has brought great character to the area in such projects like Bret Harte Hall at Roaring Camp in Felton, California; the O’Neill Building in Santa Cruz, California; the Adult Center at my child-hood church of Santa Cruz Bible Church; the community Simpkins Family Swim Center; and the Santa Cruz Harbor Light House. Moreover, MME, Inc. go beyond business excellence by seeking to make positive impacts for the local and global communities.

Riley Gerbrandt

Project Engineer, GeoSolutions, Inc.

We have used MME since 2010 for mitigation and Civil Engineering work. These guys are as good as it gets in this field. As a client, it is really refreshing to run into an organization that says what it will do, then does what it says. Their communication skills are as excellent as their technical acumen and work. MME is very professional, providing written quotes and estimates for all work and obtaining approval before performing work. I recommend them highly. Feel free to contact me for details.
