Freeman-Millican, Inc. (FMI), TX ENG FIRM REG NO. 2827, has been providing professional engineering services to cities, water and utility districts and other public agencies in the North Texas area since it was established by Larry Freeman and Terry Millican in November 1987, as a Texas-based S-Corporation. Today, FMI is a Texas corporation that is wholly-owned by five professionals who are also full-time employees of the firm. FMI was established by Larry Freeman and Terry Millican in November 1987 as a Texas-based S-Corporation.This structure allows all management decisions to be made at the local level with the input and council of all five shareholders.
We believe it is important to note that FMI works almost exclusively with public entities. FMI does not work with developers on land development projects, and the only commercial projects we undertake are institutional or industrial projects, such as churches, schools and private landfills. As such, we do not have a conflict of interest with regard to review of development work as city engineer when representing our municipal clients.
FMI has served as city engineer for the city of Forney for the past twenty years and previously served as city engineer or town engineer in Heath and Sunnyvale for many years until they each hired a local staff engineer. In the past few years, FMI has successfully provided design services for construction projects as large as $18,000,000.We continue to provide engineering services to all three of those cities as well as the cities of Sherman, Mesquite, Plano, and Terrell.
FMI provides engineering consulting services for a broad range of municipal projects including development plan review, design for paving and drainage projects, design for water and wastewater (treatment and distribution) projects, and master planning of facilities. In the past few years, FMI has successfully provided design services for construction projects as large as $18,000,000.
Terry Millican, President, and Richard Dormier, Vice-President, represent FMI in contract issues. FMI assigns one shareholder as a primary contact for each client.
