  • Structural Theories Computer Modeling
  • Utilization of Appropriate Materials

Our team members design and support vertical construction of facility designs, manufacturing, and industrial industries including high-risk commercial operations. We support the U.S. government and commercial clients with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design on installations worldwide with challenges related to building electrical systems, mission critical, energy security, and mission readiness projects, ranging from renovation and upgrade of existing infrastructure to design and execution of new work. Our expertise extends to integration of renewable energy systems into existing infrastructure, feasibility studies for infrastructure in support of critical loads, improved system reliability, and efforts to lower operational costs.

Services include:

  • Cranes, Hoists, and Other Machine Design Items
    HVAC Systems
  • Piping, Plumbing, and Sewage Systems, Gating, Operators
  • Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems
  • Water Supply and Pumps and Screening Systems Related to Civil Works and Fish Passage Systems

The electrical engineering team has expertise in the design and development of electrical projects for federal and commercial customers. Our engineers have designed electrical systems for a wide variety of industries ranging from commercial buildings to airport facilities to industrial facilities such as wastewater and water treatment systems, pump stations, and coal preparation plants. Our team is adept at the design and analysis of low- and medium-voltage power distribution, lighting and lighting controls, grounding and lightning protection, and the integration of PLC control, instrumentation, data acquisition, and SCADA systems as they relate to industrial processes, including projects located in hazardous areas. In addition, our team has extensive knowledge in the use of industry software applications, including Power Tools for Windows, to assist with electrical load studies, voltage drop analysis, short circuit analysis, device coordination studies, arc flash hazard analysis, and labeling.

Services include:

  • Low- and Medium-Voltage Power Distribution Equipment, Motor Controls and Motor Control Centers
    Engine Generators, Engine Generator Control Systems, Transfer Switches (Automatic and Manual), Variable Speed Drives
  • Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Calculations, and Labeling
