When undertaking upgrade or renovation projects, Setty's team begins by carefully assessing the building's current condition through site surveys and interviews with building personnel. A thorough condition assessment is vital in enabling us to develop feasible design solutions and realistic cost estimates. Extra care is given to compatibility of any proposed new equipment with the existing infrastructure. Before performing the upgrade or renovation, we develop a comprehensive plan for minimizing service interruptions while also ensuring the health and safety of both building occupants and project workers.
Other planning stage (pre-design) services we offer include feasibility studies, energy conservation audits, design programming studies, and facility master planning. Investigations can also include evaluations of building operations.
All project work is coordinated by registered professionals, including LEED Accredited Professionals, Certified Construction Managers, and Certified Commissioning Agents. Setty also has an Energy Modeling Team that can support energy conservation impact assessments, with dozens of analytic software applications at their disposal to augment performance impact issues.
Specialty diagnostic services are also offered, such as thermographic (infra-red) scans of building envelopes, and computational fluid dynamic (CFD) investigations to model complex space conditions. We can also apply data-loggers to measure various parameters of interest (temperature, CO2, CO, etc.) over extended operating periods.
