MKK Consulting Engineers Are on the Move

Names New President Stuart Monical, P.E. and Moves Headquarters

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 11, 2005 -- MKK Consulting Engineers, Inc. (MKK) named Stuart D. Monical, P.E., President of the 100-person firm at the beginning of 2005. Monical succeeds Norm Almquist, P.E. who has headed the Englewood-based engineering firm since 1996. Monical graduated with a B.S.M.E. from Purdue University and joined MKK in 1973. Prior to being named president he served as vice president for MKK.

Another change for MKK is the recent move of their Headquarters; now located at 7600 East Orchard Road, Suite 250 South, in Greenwood Village, Colorado. Monical expressed his excitement about the new facility and the improved environment for all employees. "Our new office demonstrates our abilities in sustainable and lighting design elements that provide a more comfortable and productive working environment for our employees," he said, referring to the firm's new home.

Stuart Monical plans to continue building on the trust and expertise of MKK, which has provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (M/E/P) engineering consulting since 1959. Emphasizing that M/E/P systems are "successful if nobody knows they're there," Monical will guide MKK, designing thoughtful and innovative building systems that serve clients' needs. Additionally, he has set his sights on positioning MKK at the forefront of designing building systems with increased environmental soundness and energy efficiencies: "We need to continue to provide clients with designs that meet their needs and contribute to a healthy community."

Norm Almquist, who will continue on as a Principal for this year before tapering off into semi-retirement, led MKK through nearly a decade of change and growth. Internally, Almquist announced his stepping down two years ago, as part of his long-term plan. Part of MKK's company culture is to cultivate people who aspire to running the company, so there were several potential candidates to take Almquist's place. About the choice of Monical, Almquist is very positive, saying he is well qualified and "his focus is on quality engineering and stable growth." An avid hunter and horseman, Almquist plans to divide his increasing free time between working on his Colorado ranch and on taking more hunting trips across the globe.
