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.

Minority Business Enterprise

ABB is nationally certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC).

ABB’s dedication to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion are core values that guides our actions and decisions. We actively seek out and support diverse subcontractors, vendors, and suppliers, creating a network for businesses that share our values. This commitment to equity and inclusion has enabled ABB to build strong relationships with its clients, communities, and partners.

As a minority owned business, we understand the importance of creating opportunities for underrepresented groups and we are committed to providing equitable job opportunities, workplace development and supporting diverse subcontractor relationships across markets.

ABB’s efforts to create a diverse and inclusive workplace have been instrumental in our success and will be essential to our growth and impact in the architectural engineering and construction industry.

ABB is nationally certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE). While ABB’s engineering and consulting services will contribute to MBE inclusion goals, we provide real value by offering direct HVAC equipment procurement and drop shipment through a registered MBE.
