Mechanical, Electrical, & Plumbing
Our mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers are some of the most experienced and respected experts in the industry. Our portfolio includes the redesign of existing systems for building renovations, retrofitting facilities to meet updated codes or to support new uses, and the design of new building systems.
Our energy solutions group delivers a full range of professional energy consulting services and approaches each project with an emphasis on life cycle performance. Our certified professionals create comfortable and energy efficient buildings by designing, installing, and commissioning new facilities and investigating, analyzing, trouble-shooting, and commissioning existing systems.
Improving Building System Performance
Keeping facilities operating efficiently while maintaining a comfortable environment for occupants is a challenge many building owners and operators face. Our persistent commissioning℠ (PCx℠) program embeds the power of engineering into a systematic approach to continually monitor building operations. We diagnose issues in a building as they are happening—helping clients address them before they start costing money and energy.
Facility Design and Assessments
We are well-known for engineering systems and performing energy modeling and commissioning services for projects that meet high levels of LEED® certification, EPA Energy Star designation, and ASHRAE 90.1 compliance requirements. Our professionals have designed and assessed high-end tenant spaces, data centers, hotels, multi-family residential complexes, secure government facilities, educational and institutional buildings, complex healthcare environments, central HVAC and power plants, and mission-critical TIER-rated facilities.
Looking Beyond Standard Requirements
Building owners can turn to our team of facility assessment experts to help them stay ahead of the latest accreditation trends. With thorough knowledge of past and present building codes, we guide clients through system testing, documentation, and protocols. Our design manuals give building owners the confidence to hand off operations, testing, and maintenance; inventory every aspect of the system; and give accreditation agencies the documentation necessary to determine facility compliance.
With national leaders active in the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Condition Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE) and The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) healthcare committees, we offer state-of-the-art hospital engineering expertise. Our group has specialized in healthcare design for more than 30 years.
Applying Expertise for High-Level Patient Care
High-performing hospital HVAC systems must mitigate airborne infections and maintain comfort, be reliable, require low maintenance, be energy efficient, and be sustainable. The correct combination and interaction of those variables, in relation to the unique environment of each hospital, are what makes for a high-performing facility—the purpose of which is always patient care.
