INDUSTRY LEADING STRUCTURAL SIGN ENGINEERING


ONE STOP ENGINEERING FOR ALL SIGN STRUCTURES

structural engineering
In over seventeen (17) years of sign design, we have engineered every variety of sign structure imaginable. Thousands of freestanding pylon signs, monument signs, roadway arch structures, billboards, and light standards have left our office with structural calculations and drawings installed in nearly fifty (50) states. In addition, we have designed thousands of wall mounted sign cabinets, channel letters, banners,
awnings and canopies. Not to leave out special structures; hundreds of scoreboards, high rise corporate ID’s, blade signs and other structures have been designed by our engineering group. We process requests on a site by site basis and publish a concise, clear set of calculations and drawings for each sign required.

PROPRIETARY CLIENT COLABORATIVE TOOLS

FROM THE OWNER

McFarland Engineering, according to owner and founder Sean M. McFarland, P.E., was founded on three key principles: (1) Serve the needs of as many clients as possible without negatively affecting the work product for ANY one client, (2) Provide a service which is thorough and complete, of high quality, delivered quickly and one which is cost effective for clients and (3) Provide a working environment which allows unhindered professional development of its employees.

Cal Poly

Sean McFarland was educated at California Polytechnic State University, in San Luis Obispo, CA with a bachelor of science degree in Architectural Engineering. Etched on the minds of all degree candidates in the school of engineering is the motto, descere faciendo (as seen in the seal to the right) latin for “design by doing”, where-in lots of fantastic hands on learning opportunities were provided. Our company work ethic, environment, and business model serves as living proof that such a platform of learning has given birth to a great business model as well. We provide employees and clients alike with a real connection between engineering and the industry which the company serves.

“Never underestimate the power of a creative mind” Sean said to me, when questioned about what makes McFarland Engineering and all of its team members a model of success for the sign industry. Continuing, “for without creativity and the open opportunity for out of the box solutions to problems we face solving everyday, our design solutions would not occur.”
