Special Structures and Equipment

Some projects require an advanced understanding of the interaction between multiple disciplines and specialties. MGA employs professionals with a broad array of engineering skills, and is capable of solving the most challenging of engineering problems.

Examples of some specialty structures that MGA has worked on can be found in projects involving rotary breakers, earth retaining structures, blast resistant structures and vibration and dynamic analysis, as well as the troubleshooting of structural behavior and construction defects.
