Engineering Services

MiTek Engineering leads the industry in credibility, speed, accuracy and efficiency.

With Professional Engineers licensed in all US states and Canadian provinces, MiTek has strategically located its engineering offices to provide design expertise for component manufacturers across North America (*Designs requiring North Carolina seals are provided by a North Carolina licensed affiliate).

By utilizing workflow and imaging technology, we have instant linkage with our customers' engineering and design departments. In jurisdictions where permitted, our customers have truss design requests processed and returned electronically or by secure PDF format.

We now provide Sealed Placement and Truss System Bracing Plans!  More contractors, engineers, and municipalities are requiring submittal of Sealed Placement and Truss System Bracing Plans for projects. We have a separate Fee-Base Professional Engineering Service to fulfill that demand versus using an outside source. Your plans are delivered to you by mail or electronically in one package. View this PDF for more information.
