RALEIGH, N.C. — On June 1, McKim & Creed, Inc., one of the largest engineering, surveying and planning firms in the U.S., celebrated 35 years of providing the “most responsive and dependable service all the time.” This mission statement has guided the company’s operations since Herbert P. McKim, Jr., P.E., PLS and Michael W. Creed, Ph.D., P.E., established McKim & Creed in 1978. The two young North Carolina State University graduates set up shop in downtown Wilmington, N.C., and “prayed for the phone to ring,” recalls Creed. “Praying for the phone to ring quickly gave way to getting out of the office and doing cold calls to potential clients. That is ultimately what changed the tide and got us moving in the right direction.”
