Welcome to Manning Design and Engineering
Manning Design and Engineering Group started in 2016 to bring a proactive and strategic approach to clients looking for high-quality engineering, unique lighting applications, and energy efficient designs. The design is just as important as the engineering which is why our group focuses on both. Our philosophy was born from training in the United States Air Force and was tested and refined like silver. Our process is to concurrently bring function to the Architectural and Interior Designs while ensuring code compliance, which allows us to maintain high-quality engineering service throughout the design process and streamline construction efforts.
