Brown, Mitchell & Alexander, Inc. (BMA), was established in 1967 and has developed into a comprehensive multi-disciplinary consulting engineering firm offering professional civil engineering, surveying and drafting services to a wide variety of clients. Originally established as Brown Engineers by Mr. Joseph L. Brown, Jr., the firm has earned the reputation as one of the strongest engineering firms on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
In April of 1987, Mr. Bill Mitchell joined the firm and became President and Owner of Brown & Mitchell, Inc. Under Mr. Mitchell’s leadership, the firm grew substantially, expanding staff and services. Surveying capabilities were added in 1991 to provide cost effective and timely response to clients and for support to the engineers. In 1992, an environmental specialist was added to the staff, allowing the firm to offer environmental consulting services to address emerging environmental issues. In October 2003, BMI Environmental Services, LLC (BMI/ES) was formed that focuses exclusively on environmental issues. The Owner and staff of BMI/ES is comprised of former BMA environmental employees and is complimentary to BMA (See website link). As an added benefit, two BMA employees were certified in the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Program administered by the United States Green Building Council. The program was established to help meet the growing demand from the public and private sectors for “green buildings” and recognizes professionals with expertise in LEED requirements. In addition, BMA recently became a Bronze Member of the National Complete Streets Program.
Since 2008, Mr. Mitchell has reduced his workload, turning over leadership and ownership of the firm to Dax Alexander. Mr. Alexander has been a long-time employee of the firm and is very familiar with every aspect of the firm’s procedures. As Owner and President, Mr. Alexander changed the name of the firm to Brown, Mitchell & Alexander, Inc., while maintaining the firm’s priorities - quality work and satisfaction of the client and affected community – in the same manner as his predecessors, Joe Brown and Bill Mitchell.
The firm’s additions over the years, along with state of the art technology, have further broadened the scope of services which BMA can provide and are further examples of the firm's commitment to maintain its leadership role in the field of professional engineering.
For over 40 years, Brown, Mitchell & Alexander has earned recognition from its clients as a competent consulting engineering firm. BMA has established an excellent reputation with clients who value the firm's ability to provide a quality product in a cost-effective and timely manner. This reputation is built on the experience and skills of highly trained, conscientious professionals who are dedicated to quality performance. Many clients have returned to BMA repeatedly over the years for these reasons.
