The Hall Engineering Group is a diversified group of engineers that co-develops large-scale architectural and construction projects. Some of these include designing or reconstructing electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and lighting systems for hospitals, universities, theme parks, ports, parking lots and garages, office buildings, factories, and much more. Our mechanical engineers have worked on many prestigious projects and have an unparalleled reputation in the industry. If you are planning on undertaking a large construction project, you will require the knowledge and training of an experienced mechanical engineering team. Call today to schedule an initial consultation.
The Role of a Mechanical Engineer in Your Construction Project
As mechanical engineers, our function is to plan, design, construct, and test machinery and equipment for facilities. For example, mechanical engineers will install pumps, piping, and drainage for plumbing; HVAC units, ducts, drainage, and power plants for HVAC systems; fire sprinkler systems, and so on. As these types of systems are scaled up, the considerations of space, power usage, concealment, and regulatory standards loom larger. Additionally, HVAC and plumbing systems in large facilities have to be designed to function in high-stress conditions and at various temperatures. That’s why many architectural designers and general contractors recruit mechanical engineers to design, implement, and test these systems.
Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Systems
Your HVAC system may be the single biggest power drain for your building or facility. That’s why it’s essential to design an HVAC system that can handle the output you require while keeping your energy usage as low as possible. Not all HVAC systems are suitable for every environment. If you’re building or refitting a specialized building, like a hospital or factory, the design of your system will need to take into consideration the odors, pathogens, and pollutants that are inherent in these types of buildings.
On the other hand, if you’re building a hotel with hundreds of individual quarters, you can’t use a centralized system that controls temperature from a single panel. Most of our systems are Multi-Split or Variable Refrigerant Flow (VFR) designs. We also design and install central energy plants, cooling towers, and chillers. Call today to speak with one of our HVAC mechanical engineers.
Plumbing Systems for Large-Scale Projects
Plumbing systems in large facilities are nothing like those of housing units. It’s not just a matter of size. A larger facility’s plumbing system has to be able to allow multiple taps to run water, flush toilets, and to supply appliances and other machines that require a water feed. If the plumbing system is for a water theme park, for instance, you have to be able to supply a continuous supply of water for the features. You also need to have drainage to carry the water back to the local sewage system. Plumbing systems in commercial buildings also require industrial pumps and water heaters. To develop a full plumbing system for a large-scale project, you need a team of mechanical engineers who understand durability, design, function, and efficiency.
Fire Protection Systems
All jurisdictions require fire protection systems in new construction and often mandate upgrades in existing ones. The Hall Engineering Group can make recommendations and implement wet, dry, and chemical fire protection and containment systems. We are familiar with the federal and state regulations governing fire protection and will familiarize ourselves with any municipal or county ordinances. Our electrical engineers can also design a fire alarm system for your facility.
