New Jersey Engineering Firm

McLaren is a top New Jersey engineering firm that provides custom, full-service building solutions.

While best known for our engineering work in healthcare, education, real estate development, coastal, energy and infrastructure around NJ, we support both private and public projects of nearly every size, shape and scope worldwide.

Services + Solutions

We offer comprehensive engineering services and solutions that take any project from concept to completion with expert consultation, design, construction support, inspection and project management.

Our core technical divisions include:


McLaren’s mixed use engineering services are helping to redefine urban planning and build communities in New Jersey and nationwide. Moreover, we specialize in bringing residential, commercial, cultural, and entertainment uses into one space.

For example, we are the teams behind projects like Hoboken’s Maxwell PlaceVan Vorst in Jersey City, and South Jersey Gas in Atlantic City.

Additionally, our experience and expertise encompass all aspects of the building life cycle with structural design, inspection and construction phase services.


Our Infrastructure solutions can be seen throughout New Jersey. In fact, they range from long span river crossings to highway overpasses, railroad bridges to secondary road structures, bridge inspection programs to retaining walls, and everything in between.

The NJ infrastructure engineering division offers full-service solutions for a variety of bridge, highway, and rail projects supporting both public and private clients. Furthermore, our solutions can help build, maintain, repair, and rehabilitate infrastructure though the five-boroughs and connections to New York.

For example, our bridge, highway, rail work includes Wittpenn Bridge and Pulaski Skyway.


Early signs of deterioration are not always obvious to the untrained eye. As such, detailed visual, hands-on, and sometimes probe inspections by expert structural engineers are imperative.

Our robust NYC structural inspection and investigation services can identify deterioration to determine the structural well-being of a building and its individual components. Additionally, we perform root cause analysis and help provide short and long-term remediation, rehabilitation, and repair support.


With the most advanced and reliable services available in-house, McLaren’s marine engineering division is changing the landscape of the maritime industry. Comprised of over 45 engineers, designers, engineer divers, and scientists, our firm provides unrivaled services in complex waterfront inspection, design, rehabilitation, permitting, and construction management.

Our work ranges from large-scale projects like the expansion of the Hudson Ferry system, the design of complex berths and ship terminals, and the support of offshore wind development, to the rehabilitation of piers, bulkhead designs, and dive inspections led by Professional Engineers.

For example, our New Jersey engineering work includes PANJNJ Port of Newark, Caven Point Marine Terminal, and Weehawken Pier.


From large-scale medical center campus expansions to smaller senior housing facilities needing structural support for upgrades, McLaren can accommodate the healthcare industry’s unique needs.

As the industry pushes flexible, human-centered healthcare design, we work to engineer value-based solutions for communities across the nation.

Working to support a variety of forward-thinking initiatives from centralized acute-care campuses to neighborhood-based out-patient “retail” healthcare models, mixed-use senior care communities to flexible intensive-care site alterations, our team of multidisciplinary engineers provides unparalleled services and understanding that fit the needs of the healthcare market on time and within budget.


McLaren has been engineering innovative solutions in education for over 40 years. Our experience goes beyond structural and civil engineering to include facade design, surveying, sustainability certification, and construction engineering for both public and private institutions.

We have helped build, renovate, and expand K-12 schools, colleges, and universities to help create inspirational education environments inside and outside of the classrooms.

Additionally, our New Jersey team has been at the forefront of helping create well-rounded education developments with state-of-the-art school buildings, residential housing, laboratories, libraries, athletic fields, performing arts theaters, and outdoor spaces.
