Mechanical Engineering

The mechanical engineers and designers at SS&A Design Collective provide cost effective state-of-the-art project specific solutions. Our team has over 75 years combined experience in the design and operation of mechanical building systems. Our engineers are experienced in working in all climatic regions (humid, frigid, high elevation, and arid). They utilize computer aided modeling software to determine how buildings react to both internal and external environmental conditions and have extensive experience in conservation standards and techniques and offer innovative solutions to improve sustainability through design and operation. Their vast knowledge of HVAC systems, plumbing systems, medical gas systems, and site utility systems ensures that all alternatives are considered and the most appropriate solution is recommended for each project.

The mechanical engineering staff at SS&A is also adept at designing specialty building systems to combat extreme conditions such as: Seismic Instability, High Velocity Wind / Wind-Born-Debris Zones, Infectious/Biological Containment, Hazardous Chemical Manipulations, as well as buildings subject to chemical or biological attack. Our areas of expertise include:

Design and Construction Document generation Utilizing (BIM) 3-D Modeling

Sustainable Design including LEED (all versions), Whole Building Energy Modeling, and Life Cycle Cost Analysis
