Experts in thermal systems technologies

Design-build

Your evolving facility needs

As your business evolves, so do your operational needs. Production lines are added, cooling loads increased, plant indoor air quality requirements change, the list goes on. The needs of your occupants and production facilities must be met, cost effectively and reliably.

The success of your upgrades and expansions will be dependent upon several factors.

The design process

Thermal system designs are not pre-engineered, waiting in manufacturers' product catalogues, ready to be quoted by an estimator. They must be assessed, case by case, compiling an assembly of equipment, controls, piping, ducting, as the case may be, by an experienced and skilled thermal system designer who understands your needs and can review the optimal design/price options. 

Otherwise stated, your first and foremost need is to determine the suitable system design that will produce the desired benefits for your operation.

Assessing a Design-Build Contractor’s Qualifications

The system must ultimately satisfy your needs and be supported by a reputable contracting organization who will deliver on its promises.

  • What is the contractor's experience in the given application?
  • What is their size, number of employees, number of years in business?
  • Who will design the system? Does the organization employ full-time designers, project managers?
  • What about after-sales service? What happens in the event of a failure? What are their service resources? How many technicians do they employ? Is 24/7 service available?
  • What about insurance coverage, licensing of the installers, safe working practices, environmental considerations?
