“The B&P culture encourages leadership on projects, opportunities to take on new responsibility and finding that work-life balance.”

John Montaño, PE
Vice President, Electrical Engineer | Phoenix, AZ

I was attracted to B&P because of their solid industry reputation and corporate culture.  B&P’s culture promotes opportunities for growth, allows team members to be responsible for their tasks and promotes team leadership. I was especially impressed with company ownership being directly involved on projects.  I started working in the Albuquerque office 15 years ago, and within my first year was given the opportunity to move to Arizona to help manage the Phoenix electrical department.  My family was very enthusiastic about the relocation, and it has been a great fit for us.    I have been blessed to be able to work alongside some of the best engineers and designers in the industry.

As a leader, I encourage my staff to challenge themselves, take pride in their work, but also take time for themselves, and enjoy life outside of the office. While I sometimes have to work late on a deadline, I make it a priority to get away from the office to see my children’s school plays, recitals and sporting events.  At B&P, employees are encouraged to take ownership and pride in their work, and they are able to take on as much responsibility as they are able, as long as they put forth the effort.  There are no limitations to what you can achieve in your career with this firm.  Here, hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed.

“I have a lot of autonomy working on projects, have a solid amount of responsibility within the firm and have the professional respect of my co-workers. I am not limited by a job description, and the leadership provides opportunities and is supportive of me expanding my knowledge base to explore new areas."

Robbie Schamp
Sr. Mechanical Designer | Phoenix, AZ

I came to B&P from a trade school and was looking to gain work experience.  As I got into my job designing mechanical systems, I found that I really enjoy the challenge of putting the pieces of the puzzle together to connect the various systems.  I am treated with respect and I feel like a valuable asset.  They are very complimentary of my work.  There are a lot of options to try new things and learn new skills.  People really take ownership of self-education. When I learned REVIT, a tutorial was provided, and I practiced it between projects.  I like that B&P is always on the cutting edge of new technology and we are seen as industry leaders with new software and ideas.

“B&P offers great project-type diversity.  They allow employees to work on a wide variety of project types, where you’ll gain a lot of experience that can’t be found at most MEP firms.”

Matt Schaffer
Mechanical Engineer Intern | Albuquerque, NM

I decided that I wanted to be a mechanical engineer my freshman year in college.  I chose B&P after they did an on-campus college recruiting session.  They do such a wide variety of unique projects that I could see myself learning a lot on the job and the project type diversity would keep me interested.  So far I’ve met a lot of knowledgeable, helpful and interesting employees at B&P that have really helped me to improve my engineering skills.  I’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone and I’ve already learned a lot during my time at B&P.

Schaffer received his Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering from Kansas State University. He joined B&P in 2011.
