JB&B has been privileged to work with many of the foremost architectural firms, corporate owners, institutions and real estate developers throughout the world. In over 100 years of practice, JB&B has completed design projects in more than 50 countries and on 6 continents, serving as consulting engineers on some of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century as well as some of the most emblematic of the 21st.

In response to the growth and innovation needs within the industry, JB&B continues to expand its service line to include specialty services such as commissioning, audiovisual, distributed antenna systems, special inspections and MEP advisory services, as well as professional lighting design through its newly formed division, LightBox Studios. It is this ingenuity―and the experience and know-how accrued with our volume of work―that our firm brings to the success of any project.
