Integrated Design-Build Firm
With one phone call, we provide our clients with everything needed from evaluation through design and construction. Our team goes beyond traditional engineering firms roles by collaborating with Shapiro & Duncan's internal departments. Our Engineering team's involvement begins early in the proposal phase, working closely with preconstruction, catering to the client's budgets and needs.
Shapiro & Duncan's Engineering Team stays engaged throughout the life cycle of the project, working with our Project Management, Virtual Design Construction, and field teams to allow fast-direct communication between design and construction.
This highly collaborative environment mitigates the risk for owners and clients which allows valuable constructability feedback to optimize the design for construction.
We continuously update our skills and stay at the forefront of the industry by actively participating in memberships and organizations such as ASHRAE, ASPE, USGBC, and DBIA. We keep up with the latest industry trends, evolving technologies, legislation, and best practices through webinars, studies, and ongoing training. We understand that everything is constantly changing, and our commitment to staying up to date ensures that we provide the most current and effective solutions to our clients.
Our Engineering Team excels at a wide range of projects including HVAC and plumbing equipment replacements, whole building mechanical system renovations, large industrial new construction and renovations in historic buildings. Our clients include private clients, public school districts, religious institutions, transportation and federal government. We provide our clients with engineering evaluations of existing systems, code analysis, energy modeling, mechanical and plumbing construction documents and commissioning support.
