In late 2007, I founded Meliora Design with the idea that creative, sustainable, and cost-effective engineering solutions could restore healthy waterways and ecosystems. Engineering informed by nature creates places that are regenerative to both our ecology and our human well-being.

While our early work focused exclusively on water resources and green infrastructure, our philosophy now informs all our civil, water resources, and structural engineering. Through our culture of collaborative innovation, our engineers find opportunities for sustainable project outcomes. We add solar panels to railroad structures, design bus wash systems utilizing captured rainwater, and seek out construction materials with reduced life cycle impact. We are engineers who ask questions.

Our vision is a sustainable future, created in part by engineering informed by nature. We look forward to connecting and partnering with others who share our values and goals. If you see us at conferences, seminars, or meetings, or just want to connect, please say hello!
