About

Morgan Prescott Jones is the principal engineer and owner of Doyle-Morgan Structural Engineering (DMSE).  The company has been in business in Santa Barbara, California since February 2000.  Morgan graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo having earned his degree in Architectural Engineering.  He became a California licensed Civil Engineer in 1991 (CE License C46678); and went on to become a licensed Structural Engineer in California (SE License S4169) and Hawaii (PE 16817 – Structural Classification).

Early in his career, Morgan understood the benefits of close collaboration with clients in applying structural concepts during the design process.  In turn he developed a vision to support his clients’ success, by forming trusted, loyal relationships that would promote team partnerships for the timely and cost-effective completion of projects.

Since establishing DMSE, Morgan has been able to serve the needs of his clients through this commitment to the principals of his vision. He remains personally and professionally committed to their unique and distinguished designs through focused and specialized engineering practices.  Both the City of Santa Barbara and County of Santa Barbara Building Department staff are well acquainted with DMSE, where Morgan maintains an excellent reputation for his structural engineering skills.
