Congratulations to our newest licensed professionals! Zach Golik, PE recently received his Professional Engineer license and Stephen Randall, LSI passed his Land Surveying Intern exam.
Residents of Eugene are reminiscing about sunny summer days spent watching baseball at Civic Stadium and mourning the loss of the historic building in a fire. BHE Survey crews remember a day spent testing new Terrestrial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanning equipment at the facility. This specialized technology takes a virtual snapshot in the form of a three-dimensional point cloud, assisting engineers with clash detection, verifying tolerances or creating a virtual as-built of installed equipment. All of the dimensions shown are sub-centimeter accurate and can be used to measure window sizes, grout joint spacing, interior pipes, existing joint locations and sizes, etc. This image shows the three-dimensional scan layered over a traditional photograph.

On June 26, 2015, the Eugene office of BHE moved to a new location in downtown Eugene. The new office in the Woolworth Building is located at 940 Willamette Street, Suite 310. BHE's phone and fax numbers will remain the same. Thanks to the team at Rowell Brokaw Architects for their help in designing the new space.
BHE's St. Charles Health System project was recently featured in the Cascade Business News. We are providing mechanical engineering services for a new hospital in Prineville. The hospital is located on the former Ochoco Lumber site. More...
Sometimes our surveyors have to get creative. A kayak is a great way to survey a wetlands area to determine the depth of a pond.
Future engineers at work at Southridge High School in Beaverton design prosthetic hands for kids. Way to go! More...

BHEGroup is on the Bassetti Architects and Lease Crutcher Lewis team providing civil engineering services for renovating historic Roosevelt High School for Portland Public Schools. This summer will see Portland Public Schools’ biggest construction season to date, spurred by the $482 million School Building Improvement Bond passed by voters in 2012. During the summer of 2013, rehabilitative construction work was completed on six schools, and in 2014 major work was done on more 12 schools. But this summer’s work calls for the biggest effort yet: construction work at 29 schools, including major restoration and new buildings at Franklin and Roosevelt high schools. More...
