About Bolton & Menk
We believe all people should live in a safe, sustainable, and beautiful community and we take pride in our ability to make that happen. It’s why we get out of bed every morning.
Our commitment to communities began in 1949 with two hard working Midwesterners—John Bolton and Martin Menk. They saw people in their surrounding communities who had dreams of a bright future, a desire to grow, and a common challenge of aging infrastructure. John and Martin’s goal was to help communities make progress by listening to what people want, finding the best solutions for their needs, and treating them right. Their legacy lives on. We still want to help, we work hard every day, and we always remember what got us here—we’re people helping people. Today, Bolton & Menk has more than 500 employees including a professional staff of more than 150 engineers, planners, landscape architects, and surveyors.
We promise every client two things: we’ll work hard for you and we’ll do a good job. We take a personal interest in the work being done around us. At the end of the day, we’re Real People offering Real Solutions.
