About Us

With a goal to provide safe, efficient, and reliable power solutions, GBEPC provides turnkey solutions to our clients. Our Electrical Engineering services include procurement, installation, design, maintenance and consulting, and we strive to meet the demands of the ever-changing environmental challenges.

Grand Bahama Engineering Procurement and Construction was formed in 2009. Our mission was to provide the “EPC”, Engineering, Procurement & Construction to companies that were looking for turn-key electrical systems solutions under one roof. As a licensed and insured Professional Engineer in the Bahamas, our principal can act as the Engineer of Record and review the electrical systems and plans for projects, ensure that the designs are compliant with code, and evaluate the equipment for durability and reliance. Safety is a top priority for us, and all of our projects are evaluated from a safety standpoint no matter what the size and scope. Over the course of the years we have expanded our portfolio to include working with professional engineers to provide the MEP on projects and have added a line maintenance and repair division that services both Grand Bahama Power and Bahamas Power & Light. Our team of experienced lineman have been working hard to restore power to the islands hit by recent hurricanes.
