Mechanical engineering focuses both on creating healthy and comfortable indoor environments for people, as well as on the generation and distribution of energy. From cooling/heating coil and fan selections, to air distribution techniques and building pressurization, we utilize modern practices to present quality designs.
From Design to Build
For architects, contractors, and building owners, an MEP consulting firm provides peace of mind. We help ensure that your project maximizes performance, minimizes cost, and provides long-term value–devising systems that properly integrate with a building’s architecture and desired performance.
We conceptualize and develop safe, reliable, and effective electrical systems, with flexibility for growth and change – systems that sustainably support the life and usefulness of buildings into the future. Including lighting, distribution, studies and arc flash, emergency power, sustainability and energy saving, telecom, and security.
Sustainability and Energy
Sustainable design systems incorporate alternative energy and conservation technologies to improve our environment and reduce waste. We routinely perform Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) and energy modeling to evaluate ways to meet certification for LEED, Green Globes, WELL, and more.
