GMC honors the knowledge and insights gained from its rich history. The firm’s heritage and culture has grown from the important intertwining of diverse legacies, from sharing of experience and knowledge between respected leaders and young leaders to be, and from decades of entrepreneurial spirit and innovative drive.
The firm was established in 1947 by civil engineers Don Mills and George Goodwyn. The leaders identified emerging talent from within and Steve Cawood joined the company in 1985 as partner forming the present GMC. In 1986 GMC began the evolution into a multi-disciplined firm when architecture was incorporated into the firm’s services. Later, landscape architecture, transportation engineering and environmental engineering were added to the firm’s menu of services.
As decades passed, the firm leveraged its core competencies and reputation. New offices were acquired and opened, and success stories were forged. Today, GMC -- with offices across the Southeast and more than 425 employees -- is privileged to be among the Southeast's most respected engineering and architecture firms. The company celebrates its history and continues to build a legacy that leads our clients into the future.
