Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing Engineering & Fire Protection
Isett is experienced in designing heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, lighting and air distribution systems that promote the functionality and comfort levels of industrial, residential,and commercial buildings. We use energy efficiency strategies and have designed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) criteria. Isett also troubleshoots problems with existing systems and can design system upgrades and expansions. Our staff is experienced in employing Building Information Modeling (BIM) three-dimensional systems.
Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems
Isett engineers provide both the preliminary analysis to select the proper type of energy and mechanical system for a building's functions and the designs for the final systems. These systems include chilled water, hot water, steam, geothermal, direct expansions, fuel oil, propane and natural gas, distribution, exhaust, infrared, radiant floor, air distribution, controls, energy recovery, and boiler and chiller central plants.
Isett engineers are experienced in the design of plumbing systems to meet or exceed local and national plumbing codes. These systems include domestic hot and cold water service and distribution; roof drainage; sanitary sewage and venting; compressed air systems; medical gas systems (oxygen, vacuum, and nitrous oxide); acid waste; and water treatment.
Electric and Lighting Systems
Isett engineers provide design for power distribution, service, metering, and fire detection systems. Our lighting design services include interior lighting, site lighting, emergency lighting, exit lighting, and emergency generators. Our electrical system design includes fire alarm, security, clock/speaker, and nurse call. Fire detection systems warn building occupants through automatic electronic equipment that use heat or combustion-detecting sensors. We work in accordance with appropriate codes and current lighting technology.
Fire Protection Systems
Depending upon the building use and code requirements, a design may include a combination of systems. Fire detection systems warn building occupants through automatic electronic equipment that use heat or combustion-detecting sensors. Fire suppression systems can include sprinklers, standpipes for fire hose connections, deluge systems, and even special, automatic extinguishing systems that displace air. The latter type of system is best used for storage areas.
System Evaluations and Life Cycle/Cost-Benefit Analysis
Isett engineers can review any of a building's systems to analyze current performance levels and compare them with design goals. In the event of system shortcomings, we provide recommendations to improve performance presenting the short-term and long-term benefits and financial impacts.
