KLH Engineers

Commercial

Commercial

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.

Office Buildings

Office Buildings

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.

Amusement Parks

Amusement Parks

KLH experience includes many amusement park projects across the country. This entertainment experience ranges from MEP design for coasters and substations, to designing the connections for the ride lighting, power and controls.  Past amusement park work also included ride pneumatics, site power distribution, site lighting, and engineering needed for ride queues.

Financial Institutions

Financial Institutions

Design and engineering systems for financial institutions often involve specific requirements related to security, power distribution, and fire protection. Not only do KLH professionals provide consulting services for standard HVAC, electric, lighting, and plumbing systems, but they provide design of technology systems as well, including communication and security systems. 

Mixed-Use Development

Mixed-Use Development

For mixed use projects that include offices, housing, retail, and/or parking, KLH services can include electrical, domestic water, fire protection, water, and gas distribution as well as irrigation and site lighting. KLH provides white box design for entire complexes and can provide fit-out design for tenants. If requested, KLH staff can assist the design team with MEP/CT space requirements and review the equipment selections and design documents provided by the design-build contractors. KLH can provide engineering design services for parking structures as well, including fire protection sprinkler systems

Parking

Parking

KLH designs systems for parking garages providing lighting, power, plumbing for wall hydrants, storm drainage, generator design, and fire protection. When the garage is part of a larger build (below offices or apartments) KLH can design for the larger scope that includes those areas as well. KLH garage design experience ranges in size from multi-story facilities as part of multi-use projects, to stand-alone facilities. KLH also provides communication technology systems for security and exhaust systems, both required by most parking facilities.

Residential

Residential

Our residential work can be part of the original construction or an update to a built facility. We can look at load requirements for new systems or equipment, design necessary MEP connections for an addition, analyze piping and control valves supplying heating and cooling, and design for updated plumbing systems. For multi-unit residential buildings such as dormitories, hotels, apartments, or assisted living communities we provide engineering and design for the mechanical, plumbing and fire protection systems. In addition, KLH provides commissioning services, allowing the new building to perform efficiently well into the future.

Warehouse and Industrial

Warehouse and Industrial

It is important that manufacturing facilities function correctly at all times. Therefore, work by KLH is critical. For projects of this type we not only provide mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering services, but often go beyond. Additional services provided by KLH can include detailed lightning protection, data and voice cabling, audio visual systems, and back-up generators. For owners who desire sustainable design, we’ve engineered geothermal HVAC systems and performed energy modeling that can earn a client financial rebates and incentives.
