A company with strong ties to building technology in local communities owes its support to the sources of that knowledge. The Southern California region has been good to Morley and the company has, since the earliest years, given back to community and institutional programs that bring our cities to life. While this giving is often financial support, we are especially proud of the time and leadership our employees contribute to organizations.
Over 15 years ago Morley "adopted" Grant Elementary School, four blocks from the home office in Santa Monica. Employees assist teachers and staff, provide equipment to the school and perform small construction projects when necessary and time is available.
Morley is an original supporter of the ACE Mentor Program in Los Angeles. This program introduces high school students to career possibilities and learning opportunities in architecture, construction and engineering. The program aims to reach students that otherwise may not become aware of the challenges and rewards of a career in the design and construction industry.
President and CEO, Mark Benjamin served as president of the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE), the national organization responsible for improving the quality of and accrediting higher education construction management programs. In addition, Morley provides support and leadership to the Architectural Guild at the University of Southern California.
In addition to providing extensive educational support to local and national programs, Morley contributes to the work of the Structural Engineers Association of California, the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, the American Institute of Architects and the American Concrete Institute. Morley also supports such organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Los Angeles Music Center, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, City of Hope Medical Center, and countless local charities and causes.
