Why choose Burns?

Employees Say

“My experience at Burns has been equally rewarding. I love our group so much. They’ve taken me in fully. Plus, everybody I work with has become a mentor, providing information I sometimes don’t even ask for. It’s a really healthy dynamic we have here, a very inclusive organization. In order to move forward, everyone has to work together.”

Maria Stahley

Project Manager, New York, NY

“As a young engineer, I know I could get pigeonholed pretty easily by doing the same type of work over and over. Instead, at Burns, I’m getting a variety of design and construction experience, across multiple disciplines.”

Michael Anderson, PE

Mechanical Engineer, Philadelphia, PA

“One of the things I love about Burns is I really do feel like I have people in my corner, championing me and my career, allowing me to grow.”

Jackie Haas, PE
