Founded in 1983, Gibbens Drake Scott, Inc. (GDS) is a full-service Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Telecommunications engineering design firm that is registered in 46 states. Due to successful working relationships with owners, developers, architects and contractors, the Federally certified Small Business has completed projects of all shapes and sizes with success. We serve our clients by making ourselves available to address their needs and by remaining well-versed in the latest technologies of our professions. We believe that a job well done extends well beyond a signed contract.
We emphasize sustainable practices, quality control, employee education, the most up-to-date technology and superb communication. Incorporating sustainable practices before they were mainstream has allowed the company to be ahead of the “Green” game; from the first solar panel installation in 1997 to proudly engineering one of the first, largest LEED Gold data centers in the United States.
Unlike many larger firms, GDS has the flexibility to incorporate last-minute changes and client requests while maintaining Principal involvement and customized service. With an average tenure of over eleven years, many of our engineers have stayed at GDS to exercise their creative abilities and innovative problem solving designs.
GDS has always enjoyed the ability to freely communicate, solve project challenges, and work with the entire design and construction team, regardless of contracts, for the ultimate benefit of the client. We believe that by providing an approach and dedication to design that focuses on the value of the service provided and concentrates effort around the client’s needs, a successful project ensues.
