A Focus on Energy Efficiency

We support clients in the development, rehabilitation and upgrade of energy systems in a wide range of key facilities, including hospitals, universities, housing facilities, civic buildings and airports. We provide comprehensive services, from consulting and advisory support to project management, design, construction supervision, and operations and maintenance. We address key issues such as planning for increased energy demand, finding the right combination of on-site generation and energy purchasing, and evaluating energy sources and systems, including green technologies. We focus on critical concerns such as protecting and maintaining the power supply, improving energy efficiency, and performing upgrades without adverse impacts on facility operations.

Protecting and Improving Operations

In addition, we offer expertise in the design and installation of central utility plants and site distribution systems, with a focus on reducing the risk of an energy interruption that can affect key operations. Our services include the design of high temperature hot water systems; high, medium and low pressure steam systems; chilled water and condenser water systems; underground site distribution piping; and cogeneration systems. We provide commissioning and system startup services as well as comprehensive hydraulic modeling and verification, master planning, system optimization studies, and life cycle cost analysis. We also support clients with field services specific to central plant construction, operation and maintenance.
