Company History

Knowing where you came from establishes who you are in business. Our company started in 1977 when Mike Girard formed Girard & Co. Engineers in Hartford Connecticut. He continued to build his reputation as a practical engineer approaching engineering as an art form and delivering a level of kind and caring service that set him apart from his peers.  

Though the 80's and 90's Mike and his skilled staff worked on countless projects throughout New England. Projects ranged from athletic facilities at Middlebury College, public and private schools in the K-12 market, to corporate office buildings like the Long Wharf complex in New Haven Connecticut. There was never an engineering challenge Mike was afraid to take on.

Always a forward thinker he wanted to maintain a legacy past his retirement. A partnership was formed in 1999. Five years later in 2004 Mike retired and is still enjoying life with friends and family in Old Lyme.
