INTRODUCTION TO THE FIRM OF md+a

The consulting engineering, architectural & land surveying firm of md+a was established in 1975 to provide Civil Engineering, Land Surveying & Architectural services for Southeastern Washington State. Our 4-person office is well staffed for the number of projects that we are qualified for and the projects that we select to undertake, since not all projects fit our experiences. Our Firm's strength is based on repeat clients with governmental agencies and many other private developers in the Region. Our Firm is very selective of the type and number of projects that it undertakes and to the geographic location of the projects, which are restricted to the Southeastern Washington Region.

md+a's office for the past 37 years has been in Pullman and is located at the Port of Whitman County Industrial Park.
md+a's new office building is equipped with all the latest facilities and equipment and we regularly utilize the latest software for structures, mapping (2 GPS systems), for the design of sites, buildings, streets & utilities projects.
