Celebrating Our Platinum Anniversary with York College of Pennsylvania
by Scott D. Butcher, FSMPS, CPSM
JDB Engineering, Inc. is marking 20 years of successful projects with York College of Pennsylvania. To celebrate, we created a short video that showcases some of the major projects that have been completed during this period, beginning with Wolf Hall or, as it was originally known, the Music, Arts and Communications Building. Since that project was completed, JDBE has provided comprehensive mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for seven student housing projects, multiple classroom renovations and expansions, a new performing arts center, a new student community center, library renovation, and much more. Right now we’re working on a major vertical expansion of Willman Business Center and another expansion to McKay Hall. We look forward to what the next 20 years brings and thank you York College of Pennsylvania for being such a great client!

VA Clinic Being Designed in BIM
JDB Engineering, Inc. is providing full-service engineering for a new 15,000 sq. ft. Community-Based Outpatient Clinic for the VA Maryland Healthcare System.
