Established in 1996, BBFM Engineers Inc. is a structural engineering design office headed by four principals with a commitment to reliable structural systems. The firm is dedicated to providing quality, effective, and cost-conscious design that meets the needs of the client and public safety. We are a leading provider of structural engineering services to design professionals, building owners, and government agencies on projects, big and small, in Alaska, Antarctica, and Greenland. Their projects in Alaska have been in every region of this vast state.


BBFM Engineers Inc. is an Alaskan-owned business. With seven structural engineers, two CAD technicians and an office administrator, we are capable of taking on all number and sizes of projects. The foundation of BBFM Engineers Inc. is cost-effective design, utilizing a multitude of building materials, with a focus on northern logistics. The firm’s engineers are particularly knowledgeable with regard to local geological conditions, Alaska’s high-risk seismicity, and local construction practices. This highly-skilled staff of engineers is continually finding new ways to meet the environmental challenges of arctic structural engineering and excels at these unique northern design opportunities. We design award-winning structures that are safe, efficient, and creative.



The primary strength of BBFM Engineers Inc. is our experienced professional staff. An association of more than two decades existed among the four founding partners. The integrity of the firm continues through transitions in the partners and a structural design team assembled with an emphasis on the strong talent and character of each member. The principals encourage the attainment of advanced degrees, acquiring specialized structural registration, and continually striving for professional excellence. We also recognizes the importance of being actively involved in community and professional organizations. The firm's engineers have been recognized for their engineering ability, community service, and professional organization involvement by eight nominations for the Alaska Engineering Societies’ Engineer of the Year and three have been awarded that honor, most recently in 2012. BBFM Engineers Inc. is continually encouraging their staff to make an investment in the community, to expand their knowledge of local resources and to mentor the next generation of young engineers.
