We Are ENGINEERING
Bowman, Foster & Associates (BFA) is a verified Small Business M/E/P Consulting Engineering firm providing a wide range of services throughout the United States and abroad for 60 years. BFA routinely manages multifaceted projects and contracts, partnering with architects and various other engineering disciplines to provide full E/A design services under a single contract or project.
BFA’s primary role is developing Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing design solutions for Renovations, Repairs, and New Construction for a variety of facilities. With six decades of experience, we continue to expand our capabilities to provide clients with a full array of design solutions and construction delivery alternatives to include design/build and design-bid-build delivery process.
MEP engineering is the science and art of planning, designing and managing the MEP systems of a building. An MEP design company specializes in those skills. Also known as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering consulting firms, they are important across all stages of the construction process. They assist with decision making, cost estimation, construction administration, documentation, building management, and building maintenance.
MEP systems are a building’s central nervous system. MEP systems are responsible for the “creature comfort” features of a structure. They make a building livable, healthy, and pleasant, no matter if it is a single-story home, a 50-story skyscraper, or a 300-rack data center.
Without well-designed solutions from an MEP firm like Bowman, Foster & Associates, buildings are caves. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers turn a building’s interior into the cozy, healthy, spaces we all know and enjoy.
Mechanical engineering focuses both on creating healthy and comfortable indoor environments for people, as well as on the generation and distribution of energy. From cooling/heating coil and fan selections, to air distribution techniques and building pressurization, we utilize modern practices to present quality designs.
From Design to Build
For architects, contractors, and building owners, an MEP consulting firm provides peace of mind. We help ensure that your project maximizes performance, minimizes cost, and provides long-term value–devising systems that properly integrate with a building’s architecture and desired performance.
We conceptualize and develop safe, reliable, and effective electrical systems, with flexibility for growth and change – systems that sustainably support the life and usefulness of buildings into the future. Including lighting, distribution, studies and arc flash, emergency power, sustainability and energy saving, telecom, and security.
Sustainability and Energy
Sustainable design systems incorporate alternative energy and conservation technologies to improve our environment and reduce waste. We routinely perform Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) and energy modeling to evaluate ways to meet certification for LEED, Green Globes, WELL, and more.

Below are seven strategies that you can use to make your older building more sustainable while also complementing and preserving the character and design of the structure. 1. Perform an energy audit Before installing new equipment or making upgrades to enhance an...
It’s absolutely paramount to have a reliable and uninterrupted electrical supply in a hospital. Even the slightest dip in a healthcare facility’s electrical supply can result in devastating results for patients on life support or in the middle of a life-saving operation. In order to protect these situations, the NFPA and The Joint Commission have developed extensive codes and regulations that must be followed by all healthcare facilities–and thank God they do! However, when choosing a partner to assist with this journey it’s important to keep in mind the future demands and needs of your growing facility.
Indoor air quality and indoor environmental quality are two terms that are often mixed up because their acronyms are akin, and concepts overlap.
