K2D is industry-recognized for its innovative and collaborative approaches in complex LEED projects and energy-sensitive markets. The K2D team looks to implement environmentally sound practices on all projects based upon forward-thinking as well as historical evidence of practical and economical results.
Energy conservation envelops all HVAC, lighting, electrical, and plumbing designs. Through smart and green energy designs, MEP engineers reduce overall energy consumption and improve operational performance levels.
HVAC optimization varies greatly from building to building. System designs are tailored to each building’s existing or new equipment and usage needs for both increased efficiency and human comfort. At a minimum, designs include:
- Automation for energy conservation.
- Determining which designs deliver the best comfort and indoor air quality.
- Implement environmentally friendly practices for LEED certification.
Lighting (indoor and outdoor is often the largest contributor to electricity waste. K2D engineers automate lighting systems to reduce energy requirements using a combination of strategies that include more natural lighting and smart lighting sensors as well as integrated total facility system design.
Plumbing designs are water conservation eccentric and cost-effective by focusing on sustainable designs for:
- Sewer waste and vent designs.
- Domestic hot and cold water distribution designs.
- Stormwater and retention designs.
- Fire suppression and sprinkler systems.
- Irrigation systems.
- Other special water and waste systems.
Electrical engineering specialists deliver ongoing technical solutions for full service automated systems from small to large-scale commercial and industrial projects.
K2D solar energy designs begin with in-depth knowledge of solar thermal and solar PV engineering. Creative integration of renewable energy systems into utility infrastructures and buildings typically involves solar electric, solar thermal systems, support utilities, and wind energy.
Safety during construction, renovation, and occupancy starts with building codes but expands based on project-specific goals.
K2D provides sustainable strategies and solutions – both short- and long-term. Our team is strongly committed to providing the highest quality of engineering design based on a wide diversity in project experience and special personal attention to our clients.
