About Us

At BGD our primary focus is to provide safe, reliable, and easy to operate electrical solutions. The firm was founded in 2015 by Gregory S. Baird, P.E. and John W. Gilroy, Jr., P.E. No other team is better skilled to accurately execute electrical engineering and SCADA integration services than the team at BGD. The firm’s professional engineers have over 45 years of combined experience in the water and wastewater industry.

BGD’s remote work culture has been in place since the incorporation of the company. All employees work from home, allowing for flexibility and increasing productivity for the engineering and design process.

Planning & Design

Our professional engineering experience includes full-service planning and design, project management, design-build, EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) construction management, SCADA programming, and plant commissioning services.

Quality Management

All projects completed by BGD must go through our comprehensive Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) process as defined by our company’s QA/QC Procedures Manual. Our manual was developed by combining years of real-world project experience and integrating industry best practices and recommendations from leading organizations such as the Project Management Institute.

Construction Services

We are engaged with and support the project throughout completion. We review contractor submittals, RFIs, and attend progress meetings to ensure the project meets the requirements of the owner. Our engineers perform onsite inspections of construction projects to ensure compliance with the contract documents and all applicable codes. In addition, we can perform facility evaluations to determine code compliance, troubleshoot operational problems, as well as recommend preventive maintenance and capital improvements.
