Our Difference

Our Difference

To serve our community with integrity and teamwork by providing quality engineering solutions that focus both on innovation and exceeding the goals of each client on every project


Excellence is our goal in everything we do.  Each project must stand on its own and provide the best solution for the Client’s needs.  Continuing education of our professional staff keeps us in the forefront of developing design efforts and products such as Revit and LED lighting.



We listen to our Clients and seek to understand their needs, integrating their requirements into the solution.  Our goal is to respond to  project issues and challenges directly and without delay both in design and construction.




We believe the total solution is not achieved until the construction is over and all systems are working as planned.  It takes the Owner, Design Team and Builder working together to reach that optimum delivery of the project.  We strive for consensus of effort through communication with the Owner during the design process and through the construction period.




Burdette Engineering, Inc. is a professional firm that is committed to producing the best possible experience for our clients.  We are equally committed to providing the best possible work environment for our people.  Our staff is a close knit team with each member valued for what they can bring to Burdette.
