Pre-construction HVAC planning is an important part of the construction process. Planning must include not only building and architectural design, but an integration of utilities and support facilities into the overall design as well. Utilities, heating and air conditioning, plumbing, equipment rooms and other facilities must be conveniently placed and adequate space allocated for the components to function properly and be maintained.
Commercial HVAC design services take into account load, air flow, special use areas and delivery of conditioned air to zones within the structure. Hospitals, laboratories, and other specialty facilities may require isolated zones with waste recovery and neutralization facilities. Heinz Mechanical Industries provides customized HVAC design to ensure that the specific needs of each client are addressed. The company provides computer-aided designs for all elements of an HVAC system.
Runs of piping, electrical conduits and ductwork must be compatible with engineering and architectural elements. Placement of ducts, control rooms, power distribution systems and mechanical equipment facilities are coordinated with the architectural and engineering team to make sure they are properly integrated into the building layout.
Pre-construction is the time that allows the most flexibility to refine the overall design, predict costs, assemble a team and define a schedule. Heinz Mechanical Industries provides a full array of pre-construction HVAC services for applications ranging from industrial and manufacturing plants to museums and veterinary facilities.
The company coordinates with other professionals who are part of the pre-construction team. The client’s budget is analyzed to identify potential cost conflicts before construction begins. A detailed schedule addresses activities to be completed during each phase of the project. Pre-construction HVAC services also include energy use analysis, energy-saving strategies and design of LEED systems to minimize energy usage.
Heinz Mechanical Industries has provided industrial and commercial HVAC, plumbing and electrical services for clients in Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington, since 1998. The company is licensed to work in both states and has the expertise to meet all local, state and federal codes in design, installation and maintenance of utility systems.
