Mechanical engineering is design of the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) for the building, that includes comfort, cost, efficiency, and aesthetics. Heating and cooling loads along with fresh air intake are all critical components of the building to achieve optimum comfort for the occupants. Mechanical engineering at pb2 excels at the integration of new requirements into existing facilities, design and implementation of new systems and reuse or upgrading of existing systems to be more sustainable and to maximize their efficiency within the building envelope.
A certain level of mystery surrounds electricity and the technology that drives buildings. Lighting and power design is an integral part of today’s technology driven buildings. The electrical system design is what makes each building come to life. Where does it come from, how does it travel from source to use, and concern over safety issues? With many of the components hidden from view and a critical part of every building system, the mystery is heightened. Electrical engineering at pb2 has extensive experience in lighting systems and control design, power system design and distribution, emergency power, lighting code and life safety, energy code application and the use of sustainable energy efficient design.
pb2 engineering provides expertise with quality plumbing systems in coordination with the mechanical systems and involves integration of new requirements in existing systems, design and implementation of new systems and reuse or upgrading of existing systems to be more sustainable and to maximize their efficiency within the building envelope.
pb2 has the expertise, including knowledge of codes and best practices, to design fire protection systems based on a thorough analysis of the building to provide a compliant system that will balance cost with occupant safety. Our engineers are part of an integrated team solution with mechanical and plumbing designs and implementation coordinated with the architect.
