Gilbert Mechanical's team of in-house design professionals includes five registered Professional Engineers and three Engineers-in-Training (EITs). This technical expertise enables us to provide added-value solutions to our clients’ most challenging projects. Our engineers understand the latest technologies and they know how to apply energy efficient solutions in a cost effective manner.
We currently have three LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) on staff, and we are continuing to expand our portfolio of LEED projects. Gilbert Mechanical has been a part of the following LEED projects:
Lexington Common Bond
Veterans Administration Medical Center
Design and Energy Modeling
We use Trane Trace software for heat loss/gain calculations, economic analysis and energy calculations. This software allows us to explore alternative HVAC systems and compare the initial installation costs to predicted annual energy costs. We can then use this information to select a solution that best fits the customer's needs.
The BIM process is used for all of our large projects to coordinate the project design and implementation. The BIM process enables us to more efficiently manage and coordinate our projects. BIM integrates:
- Building elements coordination and tracking
- Project schedule
- Equipment and material lists
- Cost estimation
- Project management
Use of the latest Autodesk® Revit® MEP platform is central to the BIM process. Our CAD designers have extensive experience with this software and can use it to design and coordinate complex mechanical, electrical and fire protection systems.
The BIM process has helped to improve both the quality and speed of project delivery, and has been key to our streamlined approach to project coordination. Implementation of BIM is a great example of Gilbert’s commitment to staying current with the latest technology in an effort to deliver services of the highest value.
