In a nutshell, what does B&D Design Services offer?
B&D Design Services (BDDS) provides Engineering, Program Management, Fabrication Management, and Certification for aftermarket aircraft modifications. Our team of in-house and contract engineering provide support for all aspects of an aircraft modification from initial concept through aircraft re-delivery. We also leverage our industry network to provide a complete solution for your modification needs. the team at BDDS is particularly interested in understanding your company's needs to complete your project an provide the best options to get it done, no matter how big or how small the job.
What are some current projects BDDS is involved with?
BDDS is currently working on a diverse set of programs:
On two VIP completions, we are providing engineering and fabrication services for a custom ACJ320neo headliner and Sidewall package. We are responsible for taking the initial program plan view and elevations from blank sheet to full aircraft installation. We are working with a completion center to develop the aesthetic requirements of the customer and turn those in to a fully certified aircraft installation.
How have you seen COVID-19 impact or alter your company?
When COVID-19 hit the United States, BDDS was well positioned to deal with it. As an early adopter of a decentralized, collaborative, virtual work environment, it has been business as usual for us. Using this model since our inception in 2004 has worked well for many reasons, but specifically during the pandemic as we have maintained productivity while keeping our people safe. We scaled back client site visits early in the year but this did not hinder our ability to get things done. The biggest impact we've noticed has not been within our company ,but rather to our clients. As they've had to navigate new ways of communicating and working remotely, or in rotating shifts at their locations, our experience in this environment has allowed us to adapt as our customers needs have changed.
What is unique to BDDS?
BDDS comprises design/structural engineers, and a number of engineering contractors, with extensive knowledge in modification of aircraft structure and interiors. This knowledge stretched from military structural modifications to OEM design and certification to VIP aftermarket interiors. During our 16 years as a company, we have developed relationships throughout all aspects of the modification process and are able to provide anything from a turn-key modification solution to integrating into your current engineering structure to provide additional manpower in times of peak need. We pride ourselves on being able to provide a solution for any challenge that arises within a modification or in the event we can't find a solution, point you to someone else who can. One item that we find particularly unique is that all of our engineers would prefer to be on the aircraft working with production and quality personnel to incorporate our designs as opposed to tossing the design over the fence and moving on. We're not afraid to get our hands dirty and actually prefer it that way. We have enjoyed success by being transparent and diligent in our pursuit of providing a high-quality work product for a fair price.
