Who We Are

Bernhard is one of the largest privately-owned engineering and contracting firms in the nation with over 2,000 employees in more than 20 locations. We have a rich history of providing high quality, client-focused engineering and contracting services for clients across the nation.

With more than 100 years of energy and infrastructure project experience, we serve healthcare, education, commercial, government, and industrial clients throughout the United States.


With rapidly aging infrastructure and a growing backlog of deferred maintenance, we found that our clients were faced with a critical decision. They could spend their capital on renewal and maintenance of energy infrastructure or on investments in their core business.

We combine development, financing, design, construction, and operations to deliver turnkey Energy-as-a-Service solutions. By leveraging expertise across our firm, we can address our client’s needs at any and every stage.

Our turnkey solutions reduce energy use, risk, and cost so that our clients can focus on their everyday work.
