Over the past 40 years, McLaren Engineering Group has engineered marine projects of nearly every size, shape and scope – ranging from bridges, piers and ferry landings to ports and bulkheads. Founder and CEO Malcolm G. McLaren is an industry pioneer who spearheaded the concept of the engineer-as-diver profession in the 1970s.
Following Hurricane Sandy, McLaren inspected more than 20,000 structures including homes of displaced families, bridge foundations for safety, and necessary design repairs to piers.
