Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABB) is a leading Architectural Engineering firm with over 34 years of experience specializing in making buildings perform better. Our core “trade level” expertise and strengths are in all exterior façade trades, curtain wall and glazing, roofing and waterproofing, HVAC and plumbing, energy efficiency, structural engineering, and construction management. We perform investigation, testing, engineering design, and prepare construction documents for both remedial and new construction projects. For both new construction and existing buildings, our services result in making buildings perform better by making them longer lasting with lower operating costs, and by reducing risk during construction.
Our experienced in-house staff include: licensed engineers (civil, structural, and mechanical), registered architects, registered roofing and waterproofing consultants (RRCs and RWCs), registered building envelope consultant (RBEC), LEED accredited professionals, amongst many others.
We apply years of insight gained through forensic building enclosure analysis to assist in achieving high performance, low maintenance building exteriors which integrate seamlessly into the project architecture.
Allana Buick & Bers has the experience necessary to analyze existing building mechanical systems and provide energy conservation retrofit recommendations, with the support of full design engineering services.
ABB is one of the most highly regarded construction defect expert firms in the Western United States, with expertise in premature failures, design standard of care issues, and expertise in all building envelope systems.
“I recommend Allana Buick & Bers to other school districts or building owners with new or existing buildings that need the services of a competent and friendly envelope team. Your buildings will perform better.”
“The San Mateo County Community College District has engaged the professional services of Allana Buick and Bers, Inc. on a variety of complex and sophisticated projects over the past several years. Their comprehensive, highly skilled team brings elegant solutions to often challenging, intricate problems. Their breadth of knowledge, broad ability, keen acuity and boundless creativity has effectively led our organization to produce world-class facilities and create an atmosphere that stimulates exceptional student learning and academic achievement.”
“NAC|Architecture and Allana Buick & Bers (ABBAE) have collaborated on many projects over the last 5 or more years. This collaboration has included work during design phases and during construction. ABBAE understands both the energy code requirements and the cost impacts of going with different systems. It is very easy for us to discuss ideas with them early in the process so that when we start drawing details, they are already in line with their recommendations.”
As a Senior Executive of major firms in my 25 year career, we utilized ABBAE’s services in over 40 discrete projects ranging from $5,000 to $35,000,000. ABBAE’s team has provided new construction specification & peer review, expansive remediation supervision, full construction management, and litigation support. ABBAE helps us enforce warranties and has trained our contractors to perform their jobs better.
We offer a complete solution for all buildings. ABB is able to assist with pre-construction, bidding, design, project management, construction, post-construction, and litigation.
Typical testing and verification services include mock-up testing, on-site testing, observation for quality assurance, water testing, and code compliance verification. Testing can be used as a tool to verify compliance with construction documents, manufacturer’s published performance.
Our design team is skilled in advanced design software and works closely with our clients to select the best suited materials and systems to meet our client’s budget, schedule, and long-term goals.
The assigned ABB construction team establishes, prioritizes, coordinates, and manages strict guidelines for the entire project team to follow, to ensure the client’s goals and objectives are met in all areas of concern: quality, cost, and time.
