Evaluation of Existing HVAC Systems

We provide evaluation of existing HVAC equipment and systems for owners and property managers. We survey buildings and observe the age, condition, efficiency and effectiveness of the HVAC equipment and their associated controls. Our reports include all of our observations and recommendations for replacement now or over the next 5-10 years, with budget estimates included with our recommendations.

Replacement/Upgrade of Major HVAC Equipment

We have significant experience in the design for replacement and/or upgrade of chillers, cooling towers, boilers, air handling units, rooftop units. We also provide construction services throughout these projects to assure the installation goes in smoothly and per design. Construction services can include final inspection and commisioning of the new systems and their controls. Our recent projects include centrifugal, magnetic bearing, and screw chillers, condensing boilers, replacement of a 50 year old redwood cooling tower on a 31 story building in Nashville with induced draft cooling towers, replacement of a multizone AHU with a new VAV AHU, and many RTU replacements.

BMS/Controls

We have designed new Building Management Systems (BMS), and designed upgrades of existing BMS systems. We have considerable experience in testing and commissioning control systems to verify if they are performing the sequence of operation per design.
