Provide us with a brief summary of your business’ services.
Motz Engineering delivers optimal cost- and energy-efficient design by connecting deep scientific knowledge with our skillful understanding of applied engineering systems. This combination of skill and knowledge connects our full understanding of mechanical, electrical, plumbing and commissioning requirements with innovative, reliable and affordable, best in class engineering solutions.

Our goal is simple: to make connections through excellent quality service

We’re there for our clients and partners. They are fully invested in their facilities, and so are we. We seek to understand facility wants and needs, even identifying new, unique solutions to ongoing issues. We also won’t disappear once construction starts; we believe the best construction administrator is someone who worked on that exact project since day one. This field-oriented approach sets us apart in the industry as boots-on-the-ground engineers.
