ENGINEERING

The ingenuity to innovate. With a firm grasp of evolving technologies and an eye towards energy efficiency and sustainability, our innovative solutions deliver long-term value (and ROI) for our clients. 

Our engineering division launched in 2009, to enhance our services and provide a fully integrated design-build team that merges the creative, analytical and artistic nature of our craft together.

Our engineers are highly skilled, completing hundreds of successful designs across many industry sectors. Developing one of the first geothermal systems within a downtown city environment; is just one example which demonstrates the forward thinking our engineers take on every project to when assisting owners and architects to re-think and re-imagine occupant comfort.

mechanical-HVAC

we pride ourselves on providing highly innovative HVAC designs with a focus on reducing energy consumption as well as minimizing system complexity and maintenance requirements. 

electrical

full service electrical system designs – lighting, on-site power, power distribution, controls, information technology communications, nurse call, security and many other specialty systems.

plumbing

our project teams integrate domestic water, waster water and storm water design into the overall project scope as well as specialty gasses, compressed air and sustainable systems when called for. 

fire protection

our fire protection system experts are dedicated to ensuring critical life safety systems are coordinated with MEP, structural and architectural elements for a successful installation and operation. 

structural

experience from projects very small to very large, from residential repairs to high rises, from new construction to historic renovation, using all common structural materials including wood, steel, concrete and masonry.

SPECIALTY SERVICES

  • LASER SCANNING
  • BIM
  • DRONE (UAS)

laser scanning

la·ser scan

3D laser scanning can measure millions of points in seconds and is the most effective way for AEC firms to capture the world around us accurately and efficiently.

3d laser scanning capabilities

  • Scan-to-BIM
  • As-Built Modeling
  • Analyze Scopes and Deformation
  • Capture Elevation & Terrain changes
  • Virtual Reality (VR)

bim

Our BIM team works closely with various disciplines and trades to identify and resolve potential conflicts with design and construction elements before construction begins in the field.
