Our mission

We seek to progress Alaska’s sustainability through effective communication, collaboration, and implementation.









Looking into the Future

The mission of EBSC Engineering is to Effectively Build Sustainable Communities. All projects are approached with a commitment to supporting the community in developing economically feasible, culturally acceptable, and locally sustainable facilities. The leadership of EBSC Engineering takes the following actions to fulfill the firm’s mission:


The leadership of EBSC strongly values the input from local residents. We do this by involving the community during the planning and design process, providing excellent follow up, and developing clear implementation plans.


EBSC engineers have an interest in developing sustainable solutions, including those that are low in capital costs, and affordable to operate and maintain.

Our values

Community relationships


We rely on the power of generational knowledge and experience, and encourage community-wide participation in all planning and design efforts.


We are interested in communicating with you and listening to your ideas.


We put people first.

Sustainability and self-reliance


We implement environmental sustainability and efficiency in our work.


We believe that sustainability begins at home with the practice of self-reliant principles such as: career development, resource management, social and emotional strength, physical exercise, literacy and education, and emergency preparedness.

Culture and integrity


We uphold integrity, responsibility, and respect in ourselves, our clients, and the Alaska Native Culture. Treating our customers with respect and integrity is a natural expression of who we are as individuals and as a company. This attribute is enriched by educating others on cultural awareness and cross-cultural communication.
