We maintain a talented team of full-time professional engineers. As mechanical systems specialists, they act as a single source for our clients throughout the design-build process.
Our experienced engineers remain deeply involved in your project — from initial concept, to construction, to Certificate of Occupancy — ensuring that our work is working as designed, on budget, and executed on time.
- Feasibility Analysis
Before you commit a significant investment toward your mechanical systems, an accurate feasibility analysis will help you “get it right” the first time. Complex air, refrigeration, and plumbing systems can be costly, and problems can easily arise if challenges and limitations are not anticipated ahead of time. Our process probes the hard questions, determining whether a project will face limitations, and if it will fit within a projected budget.
- Code Analysis
To ensure compliance with increasingly complex building codes in Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire, our engineers perform detailed code analysis on existing and planned mechanical systems. They review systems carefully, determine the steps necessary to become compliant, and assist with capital planning efforts to make needed upgrades.
- Basis of Design (BOD) Documentation
A BOD narrative is an effective tool that transforms project requirements into a detailed, actionable plan. Especially helpful in meeting objectives and avoiding budget overruns, our BOD narrative outlines the design decisions made by our engineers, as well as the reasoning behind those decisions. By keeping track of how we developed the design, we can complete the project on time and on budget, and we have a basis for troubleshooting any problems we encounter along the way.
- Systems Analysis / Audit
If you suspect your existing system isn’t performing up to expectations, you may be in need of a systems analysis or audit. Our team works diligently to uncover the contributing factors that lead to inefficiencies, helping you make informed decisions quickly, fix problems, and return your system to peak performance.
- LEED Certification
With an in-house, LEED-certified professional engineer, we are committed to environmental sustainability, and are capable of designing and building mechanical systems to LEED standards at Silver, Gold, or Platinum levels. We aim for energy-efficient HVAC/R and plumbing systems that minimize their impact on the environment while reducing long-term costs for owners.
- CAD & Revit Drawings
Our engineers use state-of-the-art 3D drafting applications, AutoCAD and Revit, to provide the highest level of accuracy and minimize human error. Fully staffed with a dedicated CAD designer who is both an engineer and mechanical systems specialist, we coordinate with building designers to create plans, solve issues, and bring mechanical systems design to life.
- Commissioning Reports
To ensure that our mechanical systems are designed, installed, and tested according to their operational requirements, we undertake a rigorous audit process to generate a commissioning report.
- Rebate Assistance
We work with our clients to help them take advantage of energy-efficiency rebates and incentives. This helps boost their bottom line while providing long-term energy saving solutions.
