With a history that dates back over 100 years, IMEG Corp. grew from several firms coming together under one uniting vision: people-centered engineering. As a national engineering and design consulting company we’ve intentionally localized our focus to serve carefully chosen regions and markets, allowing us to put relationships and communities first, without sacrificing expertise.

Our specialties are high-performing building systems, infrastructure, program management and construction-related services, but our secret to success is found in our deep bench of 3,000 team members. For us, people-centered engineering is about more than the people we serve — it’s representative of the engaged employee culture we’ve worked hard to create. We believe in investing in our people and their professional futures through continuous training, community involvement and the ability to develop a niche specialty.

After all, that’s the whole reason we’re drawn to people-centered engineering: everyone wins. By utilizing a collaborative project approach that values our local relationships, national resources and employee engagement, we’re able to produce high caliber work through high quality processes driven by our ONE IMEG culture.
