Engineering systems comprise nearly 40% of the average project budget. We believe that comprehensive, cost-effective solutions demand technical expertise and a close relationship with design. For almost sixty years our engineers have partnered with architects and clients to deliver creative, viable options that meet operational, aesthetic and sustainability goals.

Our interdisciplinary teams develop critical insight into the unique needs, culture, and design goals of our clients. This insight is the springboard for innovative solutions during all phases of the process. In addition to engineering excellence, we are known for collaboration, communication and professionalism.

With engineering projects in 48 states and ten countries worldwide, our experience positions us at the forefront of the industry. We provide services for our own architects and designers as well as outside firms, delivering high performance solutions with lasting impact. We listen, and then we lead.


Civil engineering

Comprehensive site engineering is founded on awareness of distinctive site features, soil properties, traffic patterns, storm water management and vital utility infrastructure. Clients value our extensive experience, knowledge of current environmental and regulatory conditions, and ability to work with all relevant agencies.

Electrical engineering

Our electrical engineering team focuses on the technically safe and efficient transfer of power to support a building’s infrastructure, from life-safety systems to lighting to heating and ventilation systems. A collaborative design process incorporates building information modeling and other critical clash-detection tools.

Industrial engineering

We help clients improve operational processes for people, products and information. Incorporating proven Lean and user experience methodologies, our industrial engineering team specializes in workflow analysis, ergonomics, spatial relationships, user experience and aesthetic design.

Mechanical engineering

Our expertise in this area includes HVAC, plumbing and fire-safety systems. We are industry leaders in alternative energy sources and new technology, including geothermal systems, chilled-beam systems, bio-mimicry and energy modeling. Our mechanical engineering projects range from coast to coast, touching all market sectors and climate conditions.

Structural engineering

From complex public facilities to corporate buildings, innovation and technical knowledge define our structural engineering team. Our fully integrated design approach provides structural solutions that support architecture and infrastructure under different seismic conditions, programming needs, design challenges, and long-range needs.
