The History Of C.T. Male Associates
100 Years of Engineering & Architecture
There is more than a century of experience behind the history of C.T. Male. It is appropriate that C.T. Male Associates Engineering, Surveying, Architecture, Landscape Architecture & Geology, D.P.C. (C.T. Male Associates) has grown to be a firm with a wide variety of capabilities. The firm was founded by a man whose personal interests and talents included music, mathematics, engineering, politics, teaching, and community service. Charles T. Male was born in Schenectady, NY in 1889 and received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering from Union College in 1913 and 1914 respectively. It was in 1910, while still an undergraduate, that Charles T. Male began the consulting engineering firm which still bears his name and continues his legacy of ingenuity, professional integrity and outstanding community involvement.
Though Charles T. Male began working independently in 1910, offering high-quality engineering and surveying services to his clients, his firm expanded over the course of the next 40 years. His sons, Tom, Bill and Ken, became part of his team and in 1950, Charles’ son Ken incorporated the firm as C.T. Male Associates Engineering, Surveying, Architecture, Landscape Architecture & Geology, D.P.C.
We are proud to have grown from a consulting engineering firm with two full-time employees working out of a single room to a renowned engineering, surveying, architecture and landscape architecture firm with over 100 full-time employees working in offices throughout New York State.
