OUR HISTORY

In 1946, a well-known engineer and Villanova professor named Thomas McCormick laid the groundwork for what would become present-day McCormick Taylor.

 

Joined by Paul Taylor in the 1950s, the two completed numerous high-profile structural engineering projects, and their partnership set the tradition of excellence we still uphold today.
