He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Howard University in Washington, D.C. and a master’s degree in management from North Carolina State University.
Teresa White, an electrical engineer who has been with RMF for more than 15 years, is now working with Monroe in the new office. Mechanical Designer, Scott Broadfield, was recently hired and has joined the Charlotte team as well. The team’s office is located at 301 McCullough Drive, Suite 401 – near the UNC Charlotte campus, off of I-85.
RMF has significant experience in the Charlotte area, having successfully managed a variety of local projects, both large and small. The firm has worked for Carolinas Medical Center and recently completed the Rogers Science and Health Building – a four-story, 56,500-square-foot facility, designed for LEED platinum certification on the campus of Queens University.
