Engaging and working with professional MEP consultants is an investment in the initial design and ongoing operations of your home and building systems to achieve lower operating costs along with more comfort for both owners and occupants.
New construction design is the right time for you to consider all possible cost savings that will continue throughout the building lifecycle. Designing for minimal material requirements combined with optimal equipment operation will always lower lifetime costs more than retrofitting and updating at a later time. Even modifying designs and materials after an initial design is faster and less expensive than modifying completed or in progress buildings.
During new design is the best opportunity to optimize building and equipment size and capability. Oversized systems are not the best answer because this adds capital costs, lifecycle operation costs, and maintenance costs. Optimally sized equipment and design always outperforms both over and undersized installations. Optimal designs and sizing is also the fastest and least expensive path to permit approvals that avoid construction delays. Getting it right the first time is your best answer.
New technology marches forward. With time, equipment that was best of class at original installation becomes obsolete. Even the performance of well-maintained equipment deteriorates with age. Whether renovations and upgrades are mandatory or voluntary, energy efficiency pays dividends both in lower costs and increased revenue.
Obtaining title 24 compliance during renovations is a challenge for any building owner. K2D Consulting Engineers have the answers to all of the questions you face.
