Multi-service engineering firm CMTA Consulting Engineers was formed in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1968 by three founders.

Together, the minds behind CMTA have made great things happen over the last nearly 55 years, as the company has become the leader in high-performance building and data-driven designs.
