Of all branches of engineering, mechanical engineering is undoubtedly one of the broadest. This field is primarily concerned with the proper design and manufacturing of parts and systems — especially those that involve some form of motion. For this reason, mechanical engineers play a critical role in everything from the aerospace industry to biotechnology — much like doctors who must comprehensively look at the health and well-being of an entire body when diagnosing a problem and finding a solution for it.

When looking for mechanical engineering services as they relate to construction, building design and plant maintenance, to name a few, it’s essential to choose a mechanical engineering firm with a solid track record in the field you’re concerned with.

For instance, considering the trusted role Engineering and Technical Consultants plays in the building, construction and maintenance industries, we’re a highly prudent choice. In addition, at ETC, we go out of our way to stay abreast of all recent and relevant developments in our professional space. That’s why we support and belong to professional associations like the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), Community Association Institute (CAI), National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), American Society for Testing and Material (ASTM), American Institute of Architects (AIA), and Association of Energy Engineers (AEE).

Mechanical Engineering Overview

The field of mechanical engineering as it relates to building and construction covers diverse aspects of the industry, including the proper selection of systems within a building. Included in the mechanical engineer’s sphere are the design, selection and analysis of all internal machinery in a building, including its HVAC, ventilation, ducts, plumbing, electrical system, sprinkler, security, drainage and sanitary systems.

On top of expertly planning the various mechanical systems that need to operate reliably and efficiently in a building, mechanical engineers — when called upon early in a building’s lifecycle — must also consider how these systems will fit and impact the structure of the building. Naturally, they often do so in tandem with architects.

From determining what would be the adequate size for boilers in the mechanical room to scaling mechanical assemblies such as elevators to fit within a building’s floor plan, mechanical engineers are constantly tasked with seeing the precise details of systems and the environmental conditions they’ll regularly endure during operation. At the same time, they always have to keep the big picture of the overall building in mind.

Mechanical Engineering Services

At ETC, our mechanical engineering services are backed by more than three decades of experience in the building and construction industry as well as the latest technological tools as they apply to computer modeling software.

Perhaps your project requires CAD modeling of its plumbing and greywater systems, or maybe it needs the standardization of fire and safety equipment to meet all applicable building codes. In these instances, and more, our mechanical engineering consultants are ready to supply you with a combination of in-depth knowledge and the latest software that your project demands in order to be completed in a timely, cost-effective manner.

Whether you’re looking for the latest in mechanical engineering innovation or your building’s systems are reaching the end of their life cycle, ETC can act as the lead consultant in assessing the existing systems in your current building and is capable of retrofitting and upgrading these systems as needed.
