He designs new and upgraded mechanical systems from the initial Schematic Design through permitting and Construction Documents, through final construction providing submittal review, site observations, and reports to the Owner to verify that the project is being built to our design standards. He coordinates projects with owners, architects, and other engineering disciplines during and following design; supervises and oversees the work of HVAC designers, engineers, and draftsmen; oversees and provides quality control for designs drawn under his responsible charge; provides construction administration services.  He also troubleshoots and provides assessments of existing mechanical systems.
