About Building Engineering
Parsons Brinckerhoff provides one-stop shopping for buildings - from permitting to design, from construction management to operations and maintenance. Our structural and civil engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, and architects and landscape architects provide expertise for the planning and design of buildings, transit stations, and institutional and industrial facilities.
We can provide comprehensive services throughout the life of a project, working as a team member, acting as program manager, or leading an entire building project. We assist commercial developers in creating sustainable buildings that are low-maintenance and low-energy demand. And, we help keep buildings in good condition with our comprehensive assessment program.
Throughout our history, we've made substantial contributions to structural and foundation design, and in today's computer-aided design environment, we’re even better equipped to respond to the needs of specialized building projects. When rehabilitation is the answer, we prepare efficient, often innovative designs and construction plans, with particular emphasis on construction phasing.
In a time of high fuel prices and environmental awareness, many clients are pursuing energy efficiency. We have experience in a range of energy conservation measures, and we are well versed in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards of the U.S. Green Building Council. We apply our knowledge of mechanical and electrical systems to assist clients in selecting the most efficient and sustainable energy services for buildings.
