Sustainability

M/E Engineering has studied and designed a vast variety of energy conservation related technologies and strategies that support sustainable building design.  Our analyses have ranged from simple bin hour calculations to full college campus computer modeling addressing lighting upgrades, HVAC equipment replacement, control system modifications, cogeneration systems, photovoltaics, micro turbines and geo-thermal heat pumps. Today's building environment demands energy efficiency and sustainability as a design prerequisite.  At its core, sustainability is part of our practice.

Energy Modeling

M/E Engineering has a dedicated group of specialized professionals in Energy Measure Analysis and Modeling.

We utilize various simulation and software programs, including eQUEST, Trace, EnergyPlus, and OpenStudio to develop detailed energy models based upon a minimally code compliant base case and an actual built proposed design.

Our expertly trained and certified energy modeling staff have extensive experience in LEED, utility incentive programs and life cycle cost based energy simulations for a wide variety of clients and building types, including, universities, K-12 schools, hospitals, laboratory and research facilities, casino / hospitality and entertainment complexes, multi-family residential, office buildings and industrial facilities.

We regularly utilize Energy Modeling to not only indicate construction compliance with various codes and standards, but also to provide detailed comparative analysis of system options to ensure building Owners make well informed decisions for the long term efficient operation of their properties
