H+W Engineering believes sustainable designs should be simplistic and reduce the life cycle cost of a building. We are committed to designing buildings that save energy, reduce maintenance and operation costs, and the impact on the environment. Our designs begin with reviewing passive design strategies then optimize the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and provide renewable energy systems when feasible. We believe in evaluating all components of a building together to provide projects that are as efficient as possible while providing the best value to the owner. Our evaluations compare system options including first cost, energy use, and maintenance costs in order to assist owners in selecting systems that will meet their needs over the lifetime of a building. Our team includes LEED-accredited professionals to provide the documentation to certify green buildings.
