Founded in 1971, JMT is an employee-owned firm that provides a full range of multi-disciplined engineering, architectural, and related services to public agencies and private clients throughout the United States. Our staff of nearly 1,000 professionals -- engineers, architects, planners, environmental scientists, surveyors, construction and program managers, inspectors, designers, CADD technicians, and GIS and information technology specialists -- is dedicated to the highest-quality project performance. JMT has grown considerably during the past four decades. The company was founded primarily to perform engineering services in support of land development projects. In 1979, JMT entered the public works market by focusing on transportation engineering for Federal, state and local public agencies. Over time, JMT extensively diversified both our service offerings and our client base. Today, JMT provides consulting services to a wide variety of public and private entities. This diversification of markets and services has resulted in considerable geographic expansion from our original office in Silver Spring, Maryland, to 18 strategically located offices, and we now provide services across the United States.
