LIFE AT WBM GROUP, PLLC

Culture

As WBM Group, PLLC has evolved from the design/build world to a fully licensed, stand-alone MEP engineering company, the one constant has been our culture. It's what makes us who we are and it is the reason for our success. Our culture fosters the team approach to problem solving by valuing individual member's contributions and keeping lines of communication open for easy discussion of engineering & design choices. Our team members have a long history in construction and we use that to our advantage. We know what works in the "real world" and we apply that knowledge to provide designs with the additional drawing details that assist your contractor during installation. Our clients have come to expect this level of detail because they understand the value it provides during construction.

Values

We have committed to strive for excellence in engineering and we have built our company on values intended to help us reach that goal. We value quality, timeliness and a constant attempt to become better at what we do. Our team approach is key to our quality work as we all push ourselves and each other to be better engineers, designers and virtual coordinators. By surrounding ourselves with like-minded individuals who work to be the best that they can be, we have created an environment that fosters quality. It creates a better product for our clients while also creating a work environment that is exciting and challenging.

Technology

As engineers, technology is our tool.  In order to provide the best service possible, we are early adopters of technology.  As technology has progressed over the past 15 years, we have transitioned from the 2D world into the 3D drawing environment.  While the MEP industry as a whole was slow to embrace 3D coordination, we immediately saw the benefit when the first 3D MEP software package was made available.  At this time, the new software had very minimal features.  While there was mechanical piping that could be drawn in 3D for example, there was no electrical conduit.  Instead of waiting for the next year's version of the software to come out, we made the best use of the tools that we had by using piping to simulate conduit.  While it wasn't a perfect solution to a missing feature, it was still far better than reverting back to 2D drawings and it gave us the ability to stay in front of the technology curve.

Today, we still embrace technology in the same way.  As 3D coordination has become a common practice in the industry, we are out in front of the 5D BIM modeling curve looking for ways to use technology to our advantage and to the advantage of our clients.   We currently use the latest versions of many MEP software packages and we can work in the 2D or 3D environment producing simple plan drawings or creating complex 3D renderings for space and lighting visualization.
