About Merrick & Company
Merrick & Company is an employee-owned engineering, architecture, surveying, and geospatial firm, headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colorado. Sears Merrick, a former engineering professor at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, founded our company in 1955 in Denver. Our initial focus on structural engineering quickly expanded into power engineering, surveying and other types of engineering across Colorado.
Though Merrick has grown to serve customers outside of Colorado, we haven’t outgrown our founder’s belief in the value of employee ownership: “If a man works for himself, he is much more committed.”
