B&B's project experience spans the entire spectrum of the built environment. Our services include new design, design-build, tenant improvement, existing building evaluation, seismic retrofit and renovation. B&B takes an integrated approach to project delivery as we optimize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construc tion. Our integrated projects utilize 3D design software to provide enhanced design services integrating structural models with other disciplines, as well as specialty construction support. Similarly, our structural 3D building models integrate with the 3D models prepared by construction subcontractors to allow building systems to be coordinated and prefabricated, avoiding time consuming field coordination required with traditional approaches.

Through active participation on code committees, presenting at technical seminars, and instructing engineering courses, B&B is on the cutting edge of the structural engineering design community. B&B currently has staff serving on the following committees: SEAOC Seismology, SEAOC Business Operations and Practices, NCSEA Seismic Provisions Code Advisory, SEAOC Board of Directors, and the Applied Technology Council Board of Directors. Past involvement includes six Presidents of the Central California chapter of SEAOC, as well as one President of the statewide SEAOC organization. Our principals co-authored the SEAOC Seismic Design Manual series, Appendix A of the Uniform Code for Building Conservation, and have contributed to the SEAOC Blue Book, AISC Engineering Journal, and ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering. In addition, we are committed to sustainable design. We are members of the U.S. Green Building Council and have LEED Accredited Professionals on staff. Our unique and successful in-house training program brings the knowledge from these activities to our entire staff.

As we honor and build on our past, we look forward to the future with a design approach founded on collaboration, creativity, and commitment.
