BEYOND A FAMILY BUSINESS

RTM is a national MEP, Civil, and Structural engineering consulting firm that has achieved success by remaining privately-owned and governed by our leadership team of partners. We have highlighted our commitment to growth through investment in successful entrepreneurial firms throughout the country, with a like-minded vision of the future.

FULLY CUSTOMIZED EXPERIENCE

Over the past 10 years, each firm we have brought into the RTM sphere has involved a customized transaction to meet the needs and desires of the seller – financially, operationally, and to accommodate lifestyle desires. We are not a financial buyer with specific mandates on how to buy/sell. We work with the seller to design a deal that is tailored to their firm’s needs.
