Mechanical Engineering

Our senior mechanical engineering staff has over 60 years of design experience that oversee every project from design inception to final occupancy.  Our expertise within mechanical engineering system design extends over a broad-range of project work.  Mechanical equipment has evolved and mechanical system designs and considerations are now offering a prospective owner with more choices than ever.  Building renovation and reuse has become popular, and mechanical systems must be designed to fit and operate effectively as well as efficiently.  Our group of mechanical engineers has implemented systems in the following areas of HVAC and mechanical system design:

  • Central chiller & boiler plant systems
  • Primary/secondary hydronic systems as well as Primary/primary pumped systems
  • Energy/heat recovery equipment integration including water source heat recovery chiller plants
  • Ground source geothermal heat pump systems
  • Ice storage chilled water system design
  • Variable refrigerant flow system design
  • Single pipe hydronic loop systems
  • Infloor radiant heating and cooling systems
  • Earth-tube ventilation air tempering systems
  • Industrial ventilation
  • Snow melting systems
  • Process plants and food warehouse facilities
  • Senior living campuses including Skilled Nursing Healthcare Facilities.
  • LEED/Sustainable design strategies and coordination with USGBC submittal requirements
  • Facility assessments and energy payback analysis
