At MLM we all share the same values. They are:

  • We do what we say we will do
  • We deliver on time
  • We do a good job
  • We continuously improve what we do
  • We work together in partnership
  • We communicate completely and with respect

By believing and practising these values we aspire to be 'great people to work with'.

In 1966 David Maddocks & John Lusher formed a Structural Engineering Consultancy partnership based in Ipswich. Maddocks & Lusher built up a reputation amongst their clients, fellow construction professionals and contractors for a 'superior quality service'. Joined by Colin Matthews in 1972 the newly titled Maddocks Lusher and Matthews grew steadily and in 1992 opened offices in Cambridge and Chelmsford.

In 1996 the MLM Group was formed and now has eight UK offices; Ashford, Birmingham, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Ipswich, Norwich, London and Thames Valley employing over 200 staff (and growing!)

MLM incorporates three operating companies including MLM Consulting Engineers Ltd and MLM Building Control Ltd (formed in 1998). These divisions enable MLM to offer a complete engineering and building control consultancy package to clients in both the public and private sectors.

Working on a national basis MLM is now one of the largest regionally based consulting engineering practices providing a range of services in:

  • Buildings and Infrastructure
  • Environment Planning and Development
  • Compliance
  • Sustainability

Maddocks Lusher and Matthews' reputation for delivering a 'superior quality service' is still at the core of the MLM business but has been integrated with a Vision to be 'outstanding' and a clear purpose to be 'Great People to work with'.

MLM have over 200 staff, including directors, based in London, the South East, the Midlands and the Home counties.

We are a 'people' business and relationships with our clients and within MLM are key to our success – we want to be great people to work with.

Our Vision is at the heart of our business and we believe in communicating completely and with respect with our clients and each other.

We believe there is a need for our business and people to make a positive contribution to the economy, society, and the environment in which we operate, beyond fulfilling contractual agreements and our sense of CSR underpins that value.

Our culture is one of enabling our staff to achieve their full potential through continuous development. Alongside a Competency Framework initiative, we provide structured training programmes for our Engineers and Surveyors, leading to Chartered status and we encourage and support college courses for technicians. Above all we want MLM to be a secure and rewarding working environment for our all our team.

We offer a clear Vision for our business which is underpinned by strong core values of Dependability and Customer Service. This is demonstrated by our working practices which show we are progressive, different and client focussed.
