Herb Stanford began our firm in 1977 when he opened his mechanical engineering firm which had a focus of improving energy efficiency at the facility level.

Electrical engineer, Len White, PE joined Herb Stanford in 1991 and our core services of mechanical and electrical engineering design were established.

Herb Stanford and Len White remain consultants in the firm, which currently has 3 partners.  Over the years Stanford White has been recognized for impacting the face of sustainable design.  We have embraced change, stayed on the cutting edge of technology and helped shaped legislation impacting institutions in NC.  We have consistently proven ourselves as a leader in the field of engineering.

While design tools and technology have changed over time, our core mission-to provide quality engineering solutions for our clients-remains the same.
