On all of our projects, our clients have direct access to a member of our management team with the experience and the foresight to answer questions and bring the knowledge gained through our rich project history to implement proven solutions. Decisions are quick and accurate, which saves time, money, and setbacks further down the construction cycle. Additionally, we respect the project budget and can identify opportunities for cost savings through our proven process and active project management.
We tailor our mechanical design to meet the requirements of every project with a focus on indoor environmental quality, efficiency, maintainability, and flexibility. Our engineers recommend systems that will best serve the function of the space and provide the best possible environment for its occupants.
At BKM, we understand the complexity of power systems and the responsibility owners face to provide service to a large number of users. Maintainability and energy efficiency are key aspects to our electrical system designs. Our engineers design safe, reliable, and efficient power distribution systems.
Our engineers are well versed in plumbing and piping design allowing clients to rest easy in knowing we are looking out for their best interests. As with all other systems, plumbing must suit the client’s objectives for sustainability, user convenience, cost constraints, and space limitations.
Lighting design is an essential system merging science and art, engineering and architecture, functionality and aesthetics. Proper lighting design strikes a careful balance between the artistic vision of a space and the comfort, safety, and aspirations of its occupants. BKM is dedicated to providing an attractive and streamlined lighting design that is fully coordinated, sustainable, and economically attainable for our clients.
Because of our thorough understanding of how the m/e/p systems are interrelated and how they affect decisions in other disciplines, our approach is inherently holistic. We can quickly recognize the positive and negative impacts of various decisions, helping our clients to work through the possibilities, clarify their vision, and then make it a reality.
BKM’s commissioning process ensures the owner receives the full benefit of their building systems, which are comprised of inter-related automation systems to maximize energy efficiency and occupant comfort. Our goal is to provide the building manager with the training and experience to monitor the facility and also be comfortable to modify the components to align with the occupant’s changing needs throughout the building’s life-cycle.
BKM offers whole building energy analysis to satisfy the growing needs of building owners in an increasingly energy cost-conscientious market. Building energy analysis plays a crucial role in the earliest stages of design, informing the building owner and design team of the true impact and value gained by various siting, envelope, and MEP systems design strategies. Services can be provided to address the requirements of LEED Energy & Atmosphere, IgCC 2012, building life cycle cost analysis, building energy code compliance, and utility incentives and rebates.
BKM understands the importance of electrical safety, maintenance, reliability, and asset protection within your facility. That’s why we’ve placed such an emphasis on our power systems studies program. Our Power System Engineers specialize in load flow, fault current, coordination, protection, and arc flash studies. Our goal is to minimize your down time while maximizing protection of your assets and personnel.
CFD is an essential part of the design process for critical spaces. CFD allows us to optimize the design of a space by evaluating space configuration, airflow distribution, operating conditions, and energy consumption. We work with our clients to produce a design that is energy and cost effective while ensuring that the design can maintain the desired space setpoints.
