Engineering for Owners – Should you hire an engineer directly? The answer to that question depends upon your specific need. JDB Engineering regularly works directly for building owners, typically for energy audits or studies, mechanical and electrical plant upgrades, lighting revisions, IT upgrades, and a host of MEP-specific work. Because we’re not affiliated with any mechanical or electrical contractors or product manufacturers, we can provide unbiased recommendations for products, systems, and contractors. You need a firm that is always looking out for your best interests, and at JDB Engineering, we’ve got your back!
In fact, we become your trusted advisor, and an extension of your team throughout the process.
Furthermore, owners often select an architect, and then ask (or require) that they involve JDB Engineering on a project. Face it, mechanical systems are often the biggest culprits for complaints after a project, and you don’t need the headaches! In the medical field, preventative medicine keeps the doctor away. With equipment, preventative maintenance keeps the repairman away. With our “preventative engineering” approach, we can help keep the post-construction issues away by getting it right from the start!
Because of our culture of nimbleness and flexibility, we can handle projects of any size, no matter how large or small. The key is to understand your true project drivers, imagine the best solution for your needs and wants, and then help lead you to project success.
