Buehler & Buehler's years of experience and excellent work have created a renowned reputation of integrity. This integrity has not only engendered tremendous client respect and loyalty resulting in an abundance of repeat work, but it is this integrity that has continuously recommended us to new clients. That is why our employees are so important to us. An excellent reputation can only be achieved and maintained with excellent employees - people who are willing to work hard, are open to learning new things, and aspire to excellence in all they do. At B&B, we appreciate our employees and care about their professional development. With that in mind, we place every new employee into one of our design groups, each one headed by a Principal and including seasoned engineers who are committed to helping that person succeed.
