Testimonials from industry Partners

Linda is a great mechanical consulting engineer and project manager. She listens to the client, is great with team environments, delivers excellent technical solutions, and is available and accountable throughout a project (and beyond).

- Brett Friedman, Mechanical Engineer, PE

I had the great pleasure and privilege of working with Linda at Hargis Engineers when I was a mid-career level electrical engineer in Seattle. Since it is very infrequent to see women in leadership roles in MEP consulting companies, I was very excited when Hargis made the progressive move to promote her into some of the highest ranks within the company. Linda is a very kind, dependable, level-headed woman with excellence as her mantra. She is thorough and comprehensive with her site surveys and efficient with her designs. I never heard anyone who reported to her, complain about her. She managed several very cool, level-headed, talented young mechanical engineers. I’m sure they owe much of their success today, to the leadership that Linda provided. Linda continues to support my career and personal growth, even though she has not worked with me for a long time. If you are looking for someone who cares about people, the environment, AND the bottom line, you should quickly hire Linda and her firm before they get booked solid. Melissa worked as an electrical engineer partner with Linda on Sur La Table and Cabela's projects nationwide in the Specialty Retail Group

It is with pleasure that I recommend Linda Burman for her five-star professionalism and knowledge as a Mechanical Engineer. As the Design Manager for Safeway for the past nine years, I’ve built and remodeled at least one hundred stores. When assembling the A&E teams for these projects, I’ve relied heavily on the knowledge and professionalism of Linda. She works hard to understand, and in many cases, help to shape our design criteria and then insert this information accurately into our construction documents. Linda, a dedicated Mechanical Engineer for Safeway projects at Hargis Engineers, Incorporated, has brought to our team a solid foundation of knowledge and experience, resolutely ensuring the best quality during the construction document phase throughout the build out, on to the final punch list. In the planning stages, Linda persistently engages with plans examiners to explain and defend our permit drawings resulting in the most cost effective and efficient designs to the maximum benefit of Safeway while being fully code compliant. During the construction phase, Linda has characteristically been our best advocate on site, ensuring top notch construction quality. For your future, challenging mechanical projects, I highly recommend that you add Linda Burman to your A&E team!

Linda is an amazing and talented mechanical engineer. I had the pleasure of working with Linda on a very challenging retail store flagship project located within a historical landmark building in Boston, MA. Linda's attention to detail, strong desire to meet client needs, thorough and organized communication style makes her a stand-out mechanical engineering professional. Without doubt, I highly recommend Linda for any project type that requires a high level of excellence in mechanical engineering design and a successful client relationship!
