Puckett Engineering specializes in mission critical engineering, design, construction administration, and commissioning of facility infrastructure systems and provides the same services for non-mission critical facilities. The company is about making sure your facility infrastructure systems are designed, installed, and maintained in a way that keeps the systems online and maximizes life cycle costs. That’s the critical difference between off and on.
Puckett Engineering is a privately-owned business formed in 1994 by Mike Puckett, PE. Mike is a licensed electrical engineer and licensed master electrician with over 32 years experience in the study, design, and installation of facility electrical systems with a special emphasis in mission critical and power quality applications. Mike started in the electrical field doing electrical construction work for his father’s electrical contracting business (Puckett Electric Company), before college and while attending college. Senior project manager Craig Sotelo joined Puckett Engineering in 2010, bringing 27 years of experience in design and installation of electrical and lighting systems.

In collaboration with the client and design team, Puckett Engineering aims to meet the electrical and mechanical needs of their clients’ facilities, including sensitive and critical equipment, and thereby keep their business and processes in operation and protected.
