BA celebrates diversity,
community, and collaboration

Making an impact

We build more than landmarks. We build community. We build pride. We build opportunity. And we do it by pairing unparalleled skill with exceptional character. 

At BA, we are a family of creative thinkers who are passionate about history, technology, integrity, art and the environments we live in, work in, play in. We are many moving parts who work like one remarkable engine with a common commitment to meet and go beyond our clients’ goals and expectations.

And we aim to pass that spirit along. BA serves as an extension or laboratory to Florida International University, bringing design students to our offices once a week to collaborate with our professional staff – people who are constantly learning – on real-life projects and get some real-time experience.

Respect. Compassion. Dignity. Support.

That’s what you find in our offices. We don’t just enhance the lives of our clients and the users of our infrastructure. We heighten the lives of everyone who works with us.
