Their service from preliminary design through completion of construction has been commendable. Indeed, the level of detail and commitment shown in the drawings and in the process has been truly refreshing.

Mechanical Department Purpose
We simplify complex engineering concepts for the success of our clients.

DC’s Mechanical Team is a talented group engineers and designers with extensive experience and a deep understanding of how building mechanical systems create an indoor environment. From HVAC and plumbing systems in commercial and retail buildings, to mechanical piping and process systems in industrial facilities and data centers, we have the expertise to deliver a wide array of mechanical design solutions.

We enhance the value of our design services to our clients through collaboration with other DC teams. Specifically, we often work side by side with our Commissioning and Energy Services teams to create solutions that provide benefits long after the project is completed. Whether it’s a traditional design using ‘tried and true’ technologies, an innovative energy efficient option, or a design that addresses system control and long term maintenance challenges, our solutions are thoughtfully crafted for today and tomorrow.
