Our commercial work consists of a variety of projects that include retail shops, medical buildings, industrial and manufacturing facilities, professional office buildings, restaurants and more – any facility used to conduct business or commerce. Our engineers address a number of aspects that affect the function of a building. These may include the heating, cooling, and ventilation systems to ensure that the placement of equipment, the routing of ductwork, and the placing of vents throughout the space allow the occupants to enjoy comfortable temperatures at all times. KLH designed systems incorporate sustainable design features including energy management systems, highly efficient HVAC and lighting, reduced water consumption, improved indoor air quality, and reduced CO2 emission footprint.
Though strict classifying of buildings as Class A, B, or C has diminished, there are some building characteristics that would influence comparisons or rankings of buildings. These include HVAC capacity, elevator quality and speed, security, life safety infrastructure, and back-up power. For these reasons it is important to have an experienced MEP engineer on the project team, one who will ask the right questions to design the appropriate systems.
