Monta Consulting & Design has served large and small builders for over 29 years. MCD began as a structural engineering firm, providing permit documents for residential construction. Over the years, our services expanded to include master planning, architecture, structural inspections, and builder services. The evolution of services was inspired by our teams’ desire to serve builders with integrated and efficient solutions.
MCD is licensed in over 31 states and staffed with architects and engineers who collaborate throughout the design process to produce cost-effective and accurate plans. In addition to the licensed professionals, our project managers are experts in high-volume residential construction in multiple geographic regions. Our experts are supported by an experienced drafting and administrative team who work together for the client’s benefit.
Our Proprietary Approach
Besides the inherent efficiencies of full-spectrum design services with one team, MCD understands what makes builders successful during every step of the design process. Read more below about how our team produces better results for each service.
The master planning service begins with discovery, where our team investigates and prioritizes the goals of the stakeholders. Before starting the artistic vision, designers also consider the market demand, target demographics, growth patterns, and jurisdictional requirements or limitations. Collaboration is the foundation of MCD’s charrettes and design development. The joint effort ensures that investor or municipal presentations and sales collateral are successful.

As a full-service architectural firm, MCD understands the responsibility for carrying your project vision through to realization. Services for new product lines include creating a comprehensive roadmap through various phases, including due diligence, conceptual planning, design development, and construction documents. Input from the builders’ construction, marketing, and purchasing teams is implemented to produce cost-effective plans that will yield higher returns.
Monta Consulting & Design recently added the Period Style Homes Collection to our portfolio, which will expedite product line design. As a result, there are now over 14,000 pre-designed plans in 40 timeless styles for builders to select. Products include tiny homes, zero-lot line, single-family, duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, multi-family, and luxury products. To explore the Period Style Home Catalogue, click here.
The foundation of our organization is structural engineering, but our reputation is built on providing more than calculations. Traditionally, the perception of structural engineering results in limited, rigid solutions. MCD produces multi-faceted solutions with our value engineering service. We understand the complex balance of materials, cost, regulatory codes, and structural integrity. As a result, our value engineering approach often results in bottom-line savings for the builder or developer.
Another service our engineering and project management team provides for builders is delivering truss layouts and coordinating with truss manufacturers. Plans are pre-engineered and then back-checked against the shop drawings. This method allows purchasing departments to move forward with cost analysis, purchase orders, and expedited permitting.

In addition to traditional design services, MCD offers services specifically for builders and developers as described below:
Base Plan Management– A service that produces complete construction document sets for all floor plans, elevations, and options before permit.
Product Analysis – Through base plan management, our team can provide a product analysis report explaining what models, elevations, and options are most successful in the market according to permit requests.
Expedited Permitting- When base plans are complete, our team is able to deliver sealed construction documents in 3-5 business days. For faster turnaround times, in jurisdictions that allow, master plan permit sets can be pre-approved and permitted in as little as 5 business days.
