There is an ocean between architectural/engineering contract drawings and field installation. At MLP, we have become the bridge to help contractors pre-plan construction projects by interpreting the contract drawings, laser scanning existing buildings for accurate as-builts, and making constructible shop and fabrication drawings. With this pre-planning, we can improve the contractors bottom line profit by cutting down on material waste and field labor.
The feeling of family with coworkers, clients, and vendors. We are all in this together, working to build some cool projects.

I am a father, and a musician. I love my daughters and enjoy spending time with them. I love music and have played in rock, Christian, and reggae bands. Recently, I’ve been working in my home recording studio (bedroom) as a solo artist and often invite friends to collaborate talents.
My favorite movies are Into the Wild, Singles, and Blazing Saddles. My favorite books are The Walk series by Richard Paul Evens and Sermon on the Mount by Emmett Fox.
I have three from Albert Einstein: “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”, and “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
