Purposeful exploration of concepts and solutions

ideas engineered | visions realized

Experience tells us each project has a specific combination of goals and constraints. A deep understanding of structural elements and systems enables us to directly compare the merit of various combinations. Conducting comparative studies supported with clear documentation allows teams to quickly make informed decisions. Quality decisions lead to great outcomes.


Buehler delivers thoughtfully considered solutions across a spectrum of services. We believe in questioning ordinary thinking and moving beyond structural engineering in our drive to bring visions to reality. We do not just see structure, we see the vision of our clients and the unlimited potential to create incredible spaces where life happens and people thrive.

Buehler was founded in 1946 as a service-based enterprise, and we continue to build on that philosophy. Supporting our clients means going beyond the limits of traditional approaches. Our people are smart, engaged, and generous with their time. We work as true team members where ideas are freely exchanged, options are explored and driving results is a guiding principle. With our wealth of knowledge and history, Buehler is prepared to address any challenge.

How Buehler Works

At Buehler, it is our responsibility as engineers to uphold the aspirations of great design and Architecture. We are compelled to develop elegant, constructible, and cost effective solutions; this is the practice of engineering at the highest level.

  • Highly Capable

    We bring the right balance of relevant, high quality experience and genuine enthusiasm. Large or small, complex or seemingly simple, we never back down from the challenge - to provide exceptional, often awe-inspiring results.

  • Knowledgeable Team

    The science behind architecture can be a tad nerdy - we actually enjoy physics and math! We love knowing how things work. And because we work in a highly collaborative environment, everyone at Buehler is approachable, considerate, and eager to solve problems.

    Did you know the original Buehler was the 93rd licensed Structural Engineer in California? With close to 7,000 SEs now, we are proud to say our founder was one of the originals. Since 1946, we have been building on his legacy.
