MBP Founders’ Scholarship
MBP was founded in 1989 by Frank McDonough, Charlie Bolyard, and Blake Peck, three engineers who shared
the vision of building a professional construction management consulting company based on six core values:
We Act with Integrity, We Deliver Quality, We Are One Team, We Are Driven to Succeed, We Are Innovative,
and We Care About Our Community. The MBP Founders’ Scholarship was established to provide financial
