At Nearby Engineers New York Engineers we offer a quality mechanical - HVAC engineering design service (including 2D CAD, CAD conversion, CAD to BIM conversion, BIM modeling, energy modeling as necessary) for all stages of a construction or building services project.
Design layouts: Our mechanical - HVAC engineering designs include floor plans, diagrams, schedules, equipment, specifications and construction details relating to mechanical equipment, ductwork and piping. These are all reviewed, signed and sealed by a licensed professional mechanical design engineer.
We often provide mechanical - HVAC engineering design services for HVAC projects. For HVAC projects we are particularly experienced in the designing, drafting and modeling of:
- Air Conditioning and Ventilation systems - including plant, air and water ducting and pipework design, validation and optimization for:
Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems, Chiller Plants, Humidification Systems, Cooling Towers, Chilled Beams and Window Air Conditioners, Air Handlers and Variable Speed Pumping Systems, Mechanical Ventilation Systems.
- Heating systems - including plant, ducting and pipework design, validation and optimization for:
Boiler Plants, Passive Heating, Condensing Boilers, Co-Generation, Geothermal Systems, Heat Pumps,Steam Systems , Split Systems and Radiant Floor Heating
Design management: Our mechanical - HVAC engineering design management creates a sound environment to control and support a culture of creativity and innovation, embrace iterative design and simultaneously ensure that commercial goals and objectives are ethically achieved.
2D CAD and CAD conversion -
2D CAD is two-dimensional computer aided design and CAD conversion refers to conversion of paper, PDF or scan-based drawings to CAD format.
At Nearby Engineers New York Engineers we accurately perform 2D CAD drafting to produce mechanical engineering CAD drawings (layouts, sections, elevations) for mechanical equipment, ducting and piping.
For mechanical - HVAC engineering projects requiring CAD conversion, Nearby Engineers New York Engineers can convert paper, PDF and scan-based drawings into accurate, editable CAD drawings for CAD conversion projects of many sizes, across many regions.
We manually redraft drawings in CAD by referring to blueprints or raster-based drawings and use the following CAD software: AutoCAD, Revit and generate and deliver CAD conversion output drawings in the following formats: .dwg, .dwfx., .dgn., .acis., .dwf.
Intelligent BIM modeling and CAD to BIM conversion -
BIM modeling is an intelligent 3D model-based process that provides engineers and other construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently design, construct, manage and operate built assets.
At Nearby Engineers New York Engineers we have wide experience in intelligent BIM modeling and CAD to BIM conversion and can accurately produce BIM models for mechanical equipment, ducting and piping.
We provide specialist mechanical engineering BIM modeling and CAD to BIM conversion services to:
- Link plans, elevations, sections and details of CAD files to a construction engineering project in Revit and use them as underlay
- Use CAD information, Revit and Navisworks software to generate and deliver engineering BIM models and their associated information in the following proprietary formats: .rvt, .nwd, .dwg and non-proprietary formats: ICF, COBie
For more information on our mechanical engineering service related to BIM Modeling, see: BIM services.
Energy modeling -
Robust energy modeling or energy system modeling is the process of building robust computer models of energy systems in order to be able to analyze them and gain insight to how built assets use energy.
We have extensive experience at Nearby Engineers New York Engineers in operating a variety of mechanical engineering energy modelling tools (Equest, Trace, and Excel) and are adept at providing robust, optimum solutions, matching specific tasks to the most appropriate solution.
We provide specialist mechanical engineering energy modeling services to:
- Assess design and ventilation strategies
- Diagnose overheating problems
- Explore potential energy efficiency improvement options
- Evaluate certification and standard implications (such as LEED and ASHRAE) for new and existing buildings
- Assess energy performance of asset portfolios and evaluate against cost
