“Making buildings perform better” isn’t just a slogan for Allana Buick & Bers (ABBAE), it is a well-founded truth. For over 30 years, the California-based company has implemented high-efficiency techniques and the latest technologies to encourage longevity, stability, and energy-conservation in its projects. The architectural engineering firm prides itself on its full-service capabilities and expertise—providing investigation, assessment, design, engineering, construction administration, and monitoring services based on real world experiences gained from its building forensics background to support repairs, rehabilitation, new construction projects, and construction litigation cases.

“By placing clients’ needs at the forefront, ABBAE is able to better serve its communities and build a rapport with key stakeholders in Hawaii, the Bay Area, and Los Angeles communities, which have allowed us to work on iconic buildings and campuses for thriving companies,” explains Mike Hedge, Senior Consultant for ABBAE and leader of the company’s mechanical optimization unit in Hawaii. “We are proud supporters of Hawaii Energy. We work closely with them to get our customers the maximized incentives. Our purpose is to fulfill our customer’s goals and create high performance buildings by implementing the best techniques and strategies from start to finish.”

Since its beginning, ABBAE has been able to grow its services, diversify its expertise, and expand to 12 locations. The company believes in providing clients with a holistic approach in developing, designing, constructing, and maintaining buildings. With the purpose of extending a building’s life by optimizing its energy usage, ABBAE partners with Hawaii Energy to engage local contractors and building industry professionals to educate them on new technologies and best energy conservation practices. Hedge currently teaches two classes, in conjunction with Hawaii Energy, for both commercial and residential builders, which offer guidance in finding and selling energy conservation measures, as well as the financial and non-financial benefits of various energy-efficiency practices.

“Continuing education and staying up-to-date on industry resources and practices are keys to our success,” says Hedge. “A large part of our ability to provide innovative solutions starts with our knowledgeable and experienced staff. ABBAE carefully selects its people and provides specialized training to give each employee the opportunity to thrive in their work environment. Over the course of their career, ABBAE encourages continuing education and training to allow our people to further their expertise, and ultimately benefit our clients and our communities.”
