We are thrilled to announce that Mike Meyer has joined the RTM team, bringing over 20 years of mechanical engineering, mechanical contracting, business development, and overall management experience. Mike prides himself on having a unique mix of both consulting engineering experience as well as being on the construction side as a mechanical contractor. Having a thorough understanding of the economics and realities of construction in conjunction with a sound engineering background has proven to be a very rare commodity for clients and projects alike.
Mike’s previous roles within the AEC industry have gained him a wealth of experience. In addition to designing complex mechanical systems, one of his biggest strengths is early project planning and being able to accurately identify and budget all mechanical systems and options at a very high level. This ability helps streamline the construction process while keeping the design within the project budget and on time. Other previous roles and responsibilities include project oversight and management, QA/QC, design build, contract negotiations, and having an equally balanced knowledge of both air side and hydronic systems.
Mike is the ultimate team player, consistently putting others before himself, and treating co-workers as he would his own family. He has had a successful track record of mentoring young engineers both in the office and out in the field. He understands the importance of hands-on learning and thrives on seeing those he has mentored succeed and do well in their careers. This is just one aspect that makes Mike a great fit for RTM.
Mike received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Bradley University and holds a professional engineering license in the state of Illinois.
Mike has joined our Chicago, IL office as Senior Mechanical Engineer, and will be working closely with our studios there in managing projects as well as providing valuable oversight with mechanical engineering design to younger engineers. He will also have a role in expanding some of RTM’s services and solutions such as turn-key work, construction management, construction budgeting & planning, and design build work. Additionally, be working with RTM’s local business development team to help support the efforts in establishing new relationships in the industry.
