Miller Legg’s History
50 Years in Business
Established in 1965, Miller Legg works to improve communities and create environments for a variety of public and private clients. Miller Legg, as we know it today, was established through the official merger of R.H. Miller & Associates (Civil Engineering) and R.P. Legg & Associates (Land Surveyors) in 1995. Landscape Architecture was integrated into the firm in 1997. Through several other acquisitions and mergers, Miller Legg has become the well-known, multi-disciplinary Firm we know today.
The Firm celebrated its 50th Year in Business on April 1st, 2015.
A New Milestone = A New Beginning, with a commemorative logo, and a new website, too!
In recognition of all the work we have done in Broward County, Miller Legg was the recipient of a Broward County Proclamation for our 50th Anniversary. The County has designated April 1st as Miller Legg Appreciation Day.
How it all Began
