Municipal Utilities

Our engineers and designers have decades of Municipal and Co-operative experience and expertise working with the smallest municipal and co-operative electric (distribution and Transmission), generation, natural gas, and wastewater utility systems to the first and largest regional planning agency (municipal utility) in the United States. We utilize this experience to provide a master plan to professionalize the utility.  The depth and breadth of our innovation, engineered solutions, and resources will provide a wide spectrum of ideas and technology in the performance of engineering activities on various projects. Mesa has a strong background in all phases of design from budgetary planning, schematic design, detailed design, construction administration, and commissioning/testing. Mesa provides a simple plan to accomplish sustainability for municipal utilities as well as risk and volatility mitigation and elimination strategies.

Mesa provides multi-discipline, full service architectural, engineering, and design services. Our multi-discipline organization provides a single source engineering and design service to our clients in Civil/Structural/Architectural, Electrical, Mechanical/Process, and Instrumentation & Controls. Our vision is to form a long-term relationship that is recognized as a valued and trusted partner.

Industries Served

Mesa’s Municipal Utilities group is part of the broader Industrial Process Division. We focus on providing our municipal and co-operative clients high-end development, design and engineering services that is driven by community needs demonstrating that Mesa is LARGE enough to perform but small enough to care. The municipal and co-operative community’s systems that we serve are listed below.
