            What We're Made Of
            At PAE, we like to think of ourselves as a little bit different from most engineering firms. Here's why:

            • We care intensely about envisioning and creating sustainable building systems and work every day to break new ground in the world of sustainable design.

            • We have a close affinity to the visions of the architects we work with; we understand the need for beauty as well as practicality.

            • We value creativity as much as we value precision.

              • We understand that the visionary people we want to hire need to experience the world in order to change the world, and we work hard to support that need.

                Established in 1967 and stretching across five offices on the West Coast, PAE provides services in mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering, building performance analysis, technology design, and lighting design (LUMA). We work with clients to design the nation's highest performing and most regenerative built environments that keep people comfortable, healthy, and productive inside while restoring the natural world outside. We employ an integrated and responsive approach to project design that balances the environmental, economic, and social goals of every client we work with.
                Our portfolio includes over 100 LEED Platinum projects as well as dozens of projects that have either achieved or are pursuing the Living Building Challenge, Passive House, Architecture 2030, Carbon Neutral, Net Zero Energy, and Net Zero Water.
