Design Services

Grumman|Butkus Associates (GBA) offers full mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design engineering services, including infrastructure assessments and upgrades. While GBA provides state-of-the-art MEP design for large, new construction projects, the majority of our design work is in existing buildings. GBA has extensive experience in designing systems for spaces with demanding environmental requirements, including spaces dedicated to medical research and animal research; clean rooms and data centers; and spaces designed to house environmentally sensitive items (such as art vaults and library rare book storage).

Also critical in design work for existing buildings is our experience with spaces that will remain occupied during the project.

Having evolved into a full-service MEP firm in the 1980s, from our beginnings as an energy consulting firm, GBA’s innovative engineers incorporate energy and resource efficiency into every design.
