B&H is committed to high-performance sustainable design that exceeds the goals and objectives of clients. Our high-performance “green” designs maximize many objectives of:
- Safety, comfort, and productivity of building occupants
- Efficient use of energy, water, and effluent to minimize detrimental environmental impacts
- Economic performance with low life cycle operation and maintenance cost
We draw upon our in-house sustainable design team comprised of USGBC LEED accredited professionals, experienced in specialized fields yielding the most value for long-term investments.
We offer full spectrum consulting, design, and project management to meet the integration of technology systems. Our team of seasoned engineering staff is proficient in,
- Communication System Design
- Low Voltage System Design
- Lighting control systems (Interior/Exterior)
- Energy Consulting
Creative design requires creative fire protection.
B&H’s fire protection provides solutions through consulting, building inspection and system design. During this process, we develop solutions and make sure it is acceptable with code officials. Building inspection leads to development of effective fire protection master plans for renovations and expansions. Our performance-based designs for fire protection systems assure they meet the fire safety needs and objective of complex facilities.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a 3D modeling software that enables us to construct a project virtually before we construct it in reality. This helps us design, detail, fabricate and install MEP (Mechanical, electrical and plumbing) systems more quickly and accurately resulting in no unforeseen collision between designs.
- Improve design quality
- More accurate and detailed models
- Increased productivity and enhanced collaboration
- Better estimates
Energy modeling is an important element in our design process.
In order to optimize a building’s design, we must conduct complex energy consumption estimations in order to achieve our energy efficiency goals. One of the factors in determining life cycle performance and sustainability of a building is the overall energy consumption. Doing so will optimize energy and lowers maintenance costs and gives you the highest value for the minimum cost.
Building Evaluations & Inspections Surveys
Building evaluations are done to determine conditions of existing structures. During this process, we work collaboratively with the owner to establish their needs, requirements, problem areas and goals for a given project. We then provide cost estimates as necessary.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system devised by the U.S. Green Building Council to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable design.
Each of our engineers are trained to recognize opportunities for recommended Green Building Design whenever possible. We strive to exceed standards outlined by the US Green Building Council LEED on every project and succeed every time.
Our engineers routinely use green design principles with regard to site planning.
- water efficiency
- energy and atmosphere improvements
- specifying environmentally friendly materials and resources
- indoor air quality
Autodesk REVIT/MEP Suite
B&H has chosen REVIT as our software for 3D modeling and system coordination. Utilizing this model provides the team with a greater understanding of the systems and components within the building. This data is used to evaluate system response for various equipment configurations, reduce unnecessary redundancies and monitor energy efficiency.
To maximize our sustainable design, B&H uses various lighting visualization and calculation software based on the scope of the study required. The software we rely on for the most advanced simulations is AGi32.
