1973-1974: Robert S. Miller, III, P.E. leaves behind his military fatigues, his career with the City of Portsmouth and John Flora & Associates, striking out on his own. Headquartered in a leased “suite” of two rooms in Norfolk’s Koger Executive Center, Bob’s first project for which he was compensated in real U.S. currency was the Norfolk Highlands Subdivision located in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach for Mr. Warren Ott. One year after opening its doors, the “firm” of Robert S. Miller, III, P.E. expands and Bob has a new partner, James R. Fox, P.E. Together, Bob and Jim market their services under the name Miller-Fox, P.C.
