Engineering

Responsible HVAC system designs begin with a comprehension of the current ICC Codes, NFPA, & ASHRAE Standards as well as sustainable design practices. System selection should be based on the specific project requirements and life cycle costs. Coupled with our understanding of the building structural and architectural constraints, engineering decisions are made that provide the system that maximizes value to the owner.  Specific experience/specialties include:
