Living Roof Design

Elevate your building’s appeal, promote biodiversity, reduce stormwater runoff, and enable urban farming with a rooftop garden, farm, or living wall. Our designs comply with industry regulations, standards, and codes, including IgCC, LEED (USGBC), ASTM E2397, E2400, D5141, ANSI/SPRI RP-14, GRP, FLL, NGICP, TGRCS.

HVAC Design

We design HVAC systems for dust collection, direct expansion (DX), chilled water, steam, heating hot water, central plants, energy centers, boilers, cleanrooms, and controlled environment rooms (CER). Our designs comply with ANSI, ASHRAE 55, 62, 90, IECC, ACCA, NFPA 90A, NEC, IBC, IMC, UMC, CBSC [CBC, CRC, CMC, CEC (Title 24 (JA8), CALGreen)], SMACNA.

Plumbing Design

We design plumbing systems for cold and hot water, wastewater and sewage, stormwater, fire protection (wet and dry sprinklers), fuel gas, medical gas, lab gas, process, and cooling water. We consider material selection and joining methods. Our designs comply with ASME A112, B16, B31, IPC, UPC, CPC.

Design Phases

We analyze the various phases of a building project encompassing planning, design, construction, and project closeout. Key aspects include feasibility studies, site analysis, cost estimation, permitting, bidding and negotiation, scheduling, budgeting, project management, and construction administration.

Energy Modeling

We perform energy modeling, ensure compliance with local energy codes, and recommend optimal Building Automation Systems (BAS) to enhance HVAC efficiency and performance. Moreover, depending on your desire for green building certification, we guide you through the LEED process.

Insulation Design

We analyze your building’s climate, location, and orientation, along with its energy goals, to determine the thermal performance requirements. We specify the most suitable material types and thicknesses, ensuring optimal efficiency, occupant comfort, and compliance with relevant regulations.
