At JBA Consulting Engineering, we like to say “We bring buildings to life”; In fact, we’ve been doing it for almost fifty years. Our roots as Trusted Advisors trace back to our humble beginnings as a fledgling Las Vegas engineering firm founded by industry visionary Ralph Joeckel in 1966. Today, we are proud to be recognized around the globe as the gold standard of consulting engineering firms. Our commitment to providing unsurpassed client service with the highest standard of engineering counsel to our clients around the world is the same today as it was in the beginning.
Ralph’s early drive and his passion for excellence were evident during his days as a stand out basketball star at UCLA under the tutelage of coaching legend John Wooden. This same drive and winning spirit later helped JBA secure work on over 90% of the casinos and resorts in Las Vegas, as well as various significant additional advisory assignments throughout the United States and around the world. Our firm rose to national prominence when Ed Butera joined Ralph at the leadership helm and fueled extraordinary growth in predominantly the Gaming & Hospitality marketplace. Presently, we are pleased to provide this same expert counsel to clients around the world within many additional key markets such as Aviation, Healthcare, Public Works and Higher Education.
