Passion for Excellence - We don't rest until the job is done right, on time, and our clients are 100% satisfied.

Simplify Mind-Numbing Complexity - 500 hotels that need environmental and engineering assessments? 3,000 stores that need to be measured and fitted for special equipment? No problem. With BAPM's scalable systems and processes in place and our hundreds of experts nationwide, we gladly take the burden of complexity off our clients' shoulders and make it just another great day at BAPM.

Work Seriously & Live Playfully - All work and no play? Not at BAPM. We strive to strike the balance between the two-even if it means incorporating the occasional foam rocket battle and impromptu ping pong games into our workday.

Open and Inclusive - We believe in the strength of diversity.
