Engineering Services to take your design From Concept through Launch

Industry leaders trust Broadview for engineering support because we listen to their specific needs, ask the right questions, offer smart solutions, and deliver successful outcomes. We are a customer service driven group eager to help solve challenges, meet deadlines and achieve success.

Our versatile team of product designers, engineers, and manufacturing experts works according to your project requirements. Some projects require on-site supplemental support, while others are better supported remotely. Sometimes our clients prefer to do as much of the work internally as they can, while others would rather hand off the whole project and let us run with it. We transform to fit our client’s needs.

We’re more than just an engineering contract house–for two distinct reasons:

  1. When our engineers work on projects that require prototypes or custom manufacturing tools, they have VIP access to our renowned prototype shop, and the master craftsmen who have made it so.

  2. Our robust engineering mentorship program and weekly design reviews provide our customers with the full support of our 20-strong engineering firm when they may only be paying for one engineer.

What specific services do we offer? We get involved in a wide variety of projects, so it’s difficult for us to sum up our services into a list. And as you probably know, product development can be a messy business, often blazing new trails, paving over old ones or taking wrong turns, even when you think you know your way. Some of our main service offerings are listed below. If you’re not sure what you need, or you don’t see what you’re looking for, we’d be happy to point you in the right direction–just fill out the contact form below, or give us a call at 1.616.772.4560.

Quality Engineering

With decades of experience in automotive quality applications, our team applies various disciplines to solve problems fast. Having an external quality resource can help mitigate interdepartmental disputes, and keep suppliers in check.

 

Engineering Expertise and Resources to Bring it all together

We were blessed to be part of an amazing collaboration between West Elm Workspace with Inscape and Gensler that took home two NeoCon awards this year! Leading the engineering and prototyping for the project, we enabled a seamless introduction of the Conduit System at the premier commercial design industry show in Chicago.

Contemporary office furniture brand, West Elm Workspace with Inscape and world renowned design firm, Gensler, partnered with Broadview to engineer their new office system, Conduit, and support it’s prototyping and NeoCon launch.

Based on the vision and designs produced by West Elm and Gensler, Broadview engineered all the components of the system for manufacturing, and managed the huge project of creating full-scale, production-quality prototypes.

With our in-house prototype team building many of the parts, our engineering project manager worked with with suppliers to develop tooling and get parts made, Not only that, but we completed the project on time within 6 months of kick-off–an impossible feat by industry standards.

Our engineers and craftsmen worked very hard on this project, so we were thrilled when Conduit won two Best of NeoCon® awards; a Gold in Furniture Systems and a Silver in Furniture Benching. We are proud of the work we did, and thankful for the opportunity to work on such an exciting product line, with such a passionate group of collaborators.
