We have successfully completed individual projects with costs ranging from $200,000 to in excess of $30,000,000 over this time period with total revenue produced approaching $500,000,000.

MDM has received many prestigious accolades and awards throughout the years and has earned a strong reputation for business acumen based upon sound engineering and technical judgment in the performance of many complex and varied projects. Our safety record is impeccable and we will be happy to review it with you.

Our approach to business is and always has been built upon strong fundamentals. We employ the best program managers, project managers and technical staff available in the marketplace. We require that our projects function under sound policies and procedures that work. We compensate our staff at the upper end of requisite pay scales and we manage our costs with an eye towards value and efficiency in order to provide that same value to our clients.

Throughout our 30+ years of experience providing important services to our clients, we have come to realize that one of our most important strengths is our back office process. Efficiently providing our employees with all the tools and support needed allows them to optimize their effort and increase their productivity. The net result is strong staff retention, minimizing any interruption in service due to employee turnover. Additionally, we ensure that our clients have what they need when the need it by understanding requirements beyond those outlined in project scopes. Our experience over more than three decades of business has exposed us to a myriad of client requests for both documentation and specialized processes. We have always satisfied our clients’ special requests and have been repeatedly told that our responsiveness is something rare in the industry.
