About Us

Where it began

In 1994 Building Engineering Resources, Inc. was established by our Principals to provide full "MEP/FP" services to clients in Boston and around the greater New England area.  Their vision was to bring a personalized approach to each client's  project working closely with the Architects and Project Team.  Over the years BER has grown with two locations but remains true to it's original vision.  With our Teams combined engineering experience, which crosses many boundaries and sectors, from new state-of-the-art buildings to turn of the century structures, you are guaranteed an innovative engineering approach .  

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide MEP/FP engineering solutions of the highest quality to all our Clients by bringing together a diverse team of engineering staff with the expertise, specialized experience and innovative thinking to meet today's project requirements.

Team Commitment

BER is committed to incorporating energy efficient and sustainable design practices to every project.  Large or small, each project presents a new opportunity to apply our extensive knowledge and experience across the "MEP/FP" spectrum.  We recognize our responsibility as team members and take great pride in our ability to provide creative solutions for successful project completion.
