The company founder and principal engineer is Michael Veegh, a registered professional engineer in CA, RI, MA, IN, PA, LA, NC, FL, MI and TX. His NCEES record allows him to obtain additional state licenses, as needed.

Mr. Veegh grew up in Switzerland and South Africa. In 1983 he graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand with a BSc (Eng) Civil degree. In 1994 he received his MBA degree from the University of Rhode Island.

He began his career at Watermeyer, Legge, Piésold & Uhlmann (now Knight Piesold), a South African and now international civil consulting firm, working on general building and industrial structures. In 1985, he joined VSL Corporation in Campbell, California where he became Division Engineer for the Engineering Structures Unit. He worked on the construction of long-span, steel and concrete bridges using such techniques as incremental launching, form travelers and span-by-span lifting of segments weighing up to 2400 tons. He is also well-versed in prestressed concrete and post-tensioning technology. In 1995, he incorporated CTE to pursue his goal of engineering excellence. With more than 30 years of experience in bridge construction and special projects, designing in steel and concrete, he performs much layout work, engineering and detailing himself, ensuring a high level of professional attention to all aspects of his projects.

His focus is on construction engineering for demanding infrastructure projects such as bridges, stadiums and offshore oil platforms. He assists general contractors and specialty subcontractors by designing and checking their temporary structures, means-and-methods and custom equipment. He also performs general structural engineering in steel, concrete, timber and masonry to round out his practice.

He has hands-on experience in machining and welding and has spent much time on numerous jobsites, as resident engineer and also building forms, framing, tying rebar and installing post-tensioning. This gives him a highly practical and constructability-based approach when designing for construction, a fact much valued by his clients. He is just as comfortable on the jobsite as he is in the design office. With degrees in engineering and business, he also has a clear understanding of not only the technical challenges faced by contractors, but also of their financial and risk management concerns.

In 2012, he authored "Converting Graduates into Engineers", an eBook which aims to share some insights with students and younger engineers. It is based on his personal experiences over the years and is available on Amazon.

In his spare time he enjoys astronomy and telescope building, masters athletics, soccer and outdoor life in New Hampshire with his family.
