J&M is the structural engineering firm that we partner with often. The firm was founded in 2011 and is managed by founders John Miller and Ben Jennings, who have a combined 48 years of experience. Like TDP, they are a small firm, with a staff of 10 engineers and CAD technicians. J&M is really a part of the family here at TDP, and we often joke that we need to just get John a desk in our office because he is here almost every day working on our projects with us!
In addition to structural engineering, J&M offers a variety of other services as well. A few of those include construction cost estimating, 3D modeling, steel construction design, and seismic engineering analysis (making sure that a structure meets building code requirements in order to withstand an earthquake.) The staff at J&M always strives to work through each project to provide the proper solution to meet their clients’ needs in system selections, detailing, and servicing throughout the project.
A few projects that J&M has worked on include fire stations in both Logan-Rogersville and Battlefield, the Wildlife Gallery at Bass Pro, and the Crocker School District gymnasium and FEMA shelter.
