designing for tomorrow
let's make it happen together today
We at element believe in being part of the revolution, a building revolution to change the way we design, build and operate our buildings for a better tomorrow.
In the design world, that tomorrow is here today.
We design affordable, sustainable solutions for our clients to meet today's bottom line without compromising future performance.
The element team has a fierce desire to act. We strive to be smart, humble and adaptable change-agents for our clients. We are proud to lead the way towards a more efficient future with innovative, game-changing and cost-effective technological solutions.
We create innovative engineering solutions and implement them in projects that benefit a variety of industries. Our engineering services are meticulously cultivated to provide results over the long haul.
Pre & Post Build
Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) system designs are our core value proposition. These are essential interconnected elements in today's more energy-conscious, sustainably-driven mindset. Element has a rich background in design that can help your project meet its budgetary goals.
For clients searching for a one-stop shop engineering firm, element provides a full suite of MEP engineering services from schematic design through permit to 100% construction documentation.
From solar PV and solar thermal to geothermal heat pumps, element has proven expertise on how these systems can be implemented to get our clients the most bang for their buck. We have had the privilege of working alongside sole proprietorships to world class retailers and international developers to develop our methodical design practices to optimize how these systems operate.
We leverage our knowledge of these coming of age technologies to reduce our client's risk. We’re constantly looking for new advancements and technologies to find the most economical and optimal solutions.
Understanding the energy requirements of a building is a fundamental starting point in finding ways to reduce a site's carbon footprint, save the owner's money, and analyze life cycle trade-offs of different building materials and energy consuming equipment.
For either building energy modeling or building commissioning, element uses best practices to model an existing or new building's energy consumption. This information provides a better understanding of the building's needs and provides key information on how design modifications will impact life cycle energy needs.
At element, we work together to meet each challenge that comes our way. No matter how complex or involved each new engineering project is, our versatile team is ready to accept the challenge. Check out some of our previous successes.
