mma in the News – Six Flags Over Texas’ Harley Quinn Spinsanity

Six Flags Over Texas Debutes Harley Quinn Spinsanity

On July 14, Six Flags over Texas debuted another super-villain themed ride, the Harley Quinn Spinsanity. This 24-seat gondola-style ride rotates backwards and sideways at the same time to provide riders a “combination of negative and positive gravitational forces”. The ride is now open to the public and has become a huge draw for not only the thrill, but also the 360-degree views of Arlington’s Entertainment District.

In partnership with Quorum Architects, mma prepared the paving and grading plans for the areas surrounding this project.

Women in Engineering

My dad is the reason I knew I would become an engineer. Because he is an engineer, I had grown up knowing that engineering was a possibility for me, it never crossed my mind as something that was off limits…until I got to school. It was a harrowing experience to have someone ask you what your backup plan is because engineering is too hard. Truth is, I didn’t have one. I was going to become an engineer.

“I was going to become an Engineer”

It was hard to be the only women in a classroom. It was hard to not have many women engineering friends. However it was worth it, to have a professor apologize for thinking you didn’t understand the course, to have classmates that were willing to refer you as someone to hire. It was worth it, to become an engineer because I love the puzzle and seeing the direct impact on the community. Asking my fellow female co-workers why they pursued a career in engineering, it isn’t difficult to see that we are all here for similar reasons: to be challenged and to make a difference.

Valerie is a junior at UT Arlington, working on her degree in Civil Engineering. She chose engineering to be creative with her design for infrastructure that will be used by others.

Madison is a junior at Texas A&M, working on her degree in Civil Engineering who enjoys the math, science, and challenge that engineering brings.

Gabby is a Graduate Engineer 1, who chose engineering because it would always be a challenge to her that will continue to afford her opportunities to learn new things that have a visible impact on society.

Kristal is a Graduate Engineer 2, who also has a father who is an Engineer and who was a catalyst for her choice in Engineering. She enjoys the problem solving that she gets to do every day.

WE are so grateful to all to all of the brave and bold women that paved the way for women in engineering, to not be seen as an exception to the rule, but as a part of the team. It can be difficult to fathom the hardships of those before us because at mma there are more women in the engineering department than men and we all make a knock out team.

“to not be seen as an exception to the rule, but as part of the team.


Mrs. Taylor is a professional engineer with over 5 years experience. She currently serves as a project manager for mma and has been responsible for the planning, designing and preparing of construction documents for various projects throughout Texas. Project types include, but have not been limited to, municipal roadway improvements, commercial and retail development and residential development.

Creating Our Brand.

mma,inc. and it predecessors have been a staple in the Arlington community for over 4 decades. The current ownership have a long history within the community, have been and are heavily involved in multiple community organizations, and have been a part of many projects which have transformed the City over the years. That being said, Arlington is very important to mma and we wanted to express this within our brand.

Arlington is located within the central part of the DFW area. Roughly 16 miles from downtown Fort Worth and 19 miles from downtown Dallas. Our central location within the DFW area allows us to not only be involved and provide our services within the City of Arlington, but also connect with the multitude of other municipalities within the region in a timely fashion. Our corporate headquarters is located within downtown Arlington. The downtown layout is the typical grid layout you see within the core of most towns and cities.

The area between Main Street and the railroad is divided in sections which graphically forms a square. Main Street with the interurban railway and the union pacific railway formed the backbone of the downtown area. Also, our central location and historical roots in the Arlington area provide a segue into what had been the central gathering space in the downtown area for many years and the backbone for community engagement. The water well located at Main Street and Center Street.

The water well changed over time and was ultimately removed in the 1950’s. Today the central gathering place in downtown Arlington is the Levitt Pavilion at Founders Park. Many people now come from all over the region to gather and enjoy free concerts under the stars.

The central gathering place is key to us, as we take pride in working with our clients to be their point of contact for their projects, by working with governmental agencies and other design consultants and acting as a hub (or central gathering place) for design coordination, community engagement, and plan submittals.

The central gathering place is represented by the center square in our brand. It also represents our central location with the region and the city. The outlying lines represent the downtown grid, which connects us to our historical roots in Arlington, but also how we take pride in connecting with our clients. The internal grid layout also represents our survey, planning, and GIS services, which relate to each discipline in different ways. The vertical lines, as shown in our previous brands, represent our civil engineering and landscape architectural services. The line moving downwards represents civil infrastructure, below the ground, and the line moving upwards represents site & landscape improvements, above the ground.

Our brand is simple yet speaks to who we are, what we believe in, and where we have come from. We hope you like our new look, because we sure do!

We’ve Moved!

Check out the new home of mma, located in the heart of Arlington

2017 was a big year for all of us at mma! We went through a re-branding, introduced GIS as one of our core services, and began an initiative to boost our employee and business development. Because of these awesome changes, it only made sense for our growing firm to move to a bigger and better office!

We knew we wanted to stay in Arlington and close to downtown. This area has been our home base for almost twenty years, and it has been incredible to see and be a part of the redevelopment process of this district. After a few months of searching, we finally found the perfect space for our firm just down the street from our old office. In March of this year, we finally made the move into our brand-new space! With custom finishes like our wall-sized map of Dallas-Fort Worth, interactive screens with our project catalog, and a pool table that never goes a day without use, the new office represents our brand from top to bottom.

We couldn’t be prouder of our new office! If you haven’t had the chance to see our space, please stop by anytime for a tour.
