The process of designing an optimal HVAC system and controls for a given space or set of spaces can sometimes be straightforward for spaces with modest dimensions and simple requirements. More often the process is complex and organic, evolving with the developing programming and schematic designs provided by the occupants and/or architect. At AEP we work closely with our clients to ensure this process is as seamless as possible. For a mechanical engineer, a deep experience base is a key factor in the early design phase as that knowledge can be drawn upon to provide quick and accurate design approaches that suit a specific project.
