20+ years of engineering experience allows John Melvin to see projects from a fresh, innovative perspective.

Before John Melvin put together a top-tier team and launched JM Engineering in 2001, he gained experience a variety of roles in and around the construction industry.

John’s time as a CAD technician, project manager, design engineer and commissioning agent (among other roles) brought him deep inside the industry and allowed him to view complex projects from many different perspectives – including yours.

John Melvin’s 20+ years in mechanical engineering design have taught him an immense amount, but the most important thing he has learned is that every project must be considered from a big-picture perspective. Understanding how each piece fits together is essential to seamless execution and perfect finished results.
