Meet the Team

Allana Buick & Bers’ was founded in Sunnyvale, California by Karim Allana in 1987. Gerson Bers and Eugene Buick, two senior principals, joined the firm in 2002. Since then, we have grown to over 22 offices with over 225 employees. 

We recognize the profound impact of our built environment—whether in our homes, towering cityscapes, or industrial settings—infusing our lives with depth. Our commitment transcends professional duty; it’s a passionate dedication. Ensuring structures reach their potential, optimizing performance for decades or even centuries, is more than a task; it’s an unwavering calling. At ABB, our approach integrates historical lessons into innovative solutions marked by precision and care, elevating building quality. Leveraging insights from what doesn’t work, we pioneer new avenues in designing solutions that mitigate risk and amplify potential. Our experienced engineers and skilled tradespeople are dedicated to sharing our diverse expertise, recognizing that effective design defies standardization; it demands meticulous alignment with purpose for peak building performance.
