We Are MSB

Since 1978, M S Benbow and Associates Professional Engineering Corporation (MSB) has set out to solve the biggest engineering problems in the public and private sectors that impact the way people live, work, and play.

MSB provides consulting, design, project and/or construction management and post-implementation support services in the following disciplines:

We produce results that are as smart as they are effective, based on the belief that there is always a better way of engineering. We would rather work intimately with a few clients than casually with many and have a proven track record of establishing mutually beneficial, long-term relationships.

Our goal is to provide long-term growth and sustainability for our clients, employees, and communities. MSB’s success is due to the quality of our work, as well as our beliefs, our approach, and the trust we are known for.
