Established in 2009, Martel Engineering Inc. is led by president, CEO and structural engineer Michael Martel, P.E., who brings with him decades of experience in both the construction and engineering business. With a goal to bring competent designs to clients through the entire spectrum of the project, from design to construction, Martel Engineering was built from the ground up on proven expertise and established industry relationships.
Michael was first exposed to the construction industry at a young age under his father, who owned a welding company out of Tewksbury. Even this early exposure to the business showed him that to be successful in life, you had to work well with people and connect on a common level. That approach has stuck with him through the years as he looked ahead to his own career.
After graduating from Merrimack College in 1994 with a structural engineering degree, Michael started out working in the geotechnical civil engineering sector for environmental companies that required expertise on structural support. Over the years, he worked for companies big and small, acting as consultant on anything from moving municipal bridges and beams to having a hand in the Central Artery project as part of the Big Dig in Boston.
Along the way, Michael settled into a niche within his chosen field of structural engineering. Because of his extensive expertise in contractor support and support of excavation (SOE), he developed strong working relationships with his fellow contractors. He spoke the language they spoke, communicated on a shared level, and truly understood the nature of the business in practical, in-the-trenches applications. It’s because of this shared understanding and mutual respect that many of those contractors have continued to followed him around over the years from job to job.
As such, Martel Engineering prides itself on being “Contractor” Engineers, not “Book” Engineers, working alongside clients to produce plans and designs with practical applications in the real world rather than concepts that may work by the book but are difficult to apply in the field. Backed by solid constructability of designs and the quick turnaround times, Martel Engineering strives to maintain the most cost effective solutions to each and every problem.
Martel Engineering delivers a full range of engineering services, from commercial and residential to heavy construction? and telecommunications. From consulting and designing to safety reviews and site walks, we are involved in every step of the process thanks to our proven versatility and knowledge in the field.
