Our consulting engineers have pioneered Wellness-Enhanced designs for office buildings and commercial facilities. With a focus on improving overall occupant well-being, we implement sophisticated air filtration and ventilation systems, improving airflow, circulation, and clean air standards. These improvements in Indoor Air-Quality (IAQ) have been shown to boost productivity, worker performance, and decrease absense due to illness.

We are also an official partner with wellness-organization, Delos Living.

Hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality facilities must ensure customers have a comfortable, reliable, and pleasant environment during their stay. This also must come in an economical, scalable, and manageable packge, which makes efficient system design absolutely crucial. From hotels with individually-controlled air conditioning systems in each unit to restaurants and conference centers with high-capacity airflow & plumbing systems, our team has produced efficient and reliable designs for hospitality facilities of all types.

With extensive experience in event venue, sound stage, and theater projects, we understand the unique needs of such facilities. From acoustic HVAC systems with “Sound Trap” equipment, Noise-Dampening materials, and Kinetic Isolation Suspension systems to Airflow Design for high-capacity event venues, our consulting engineering team will tailor a bespoke design to your facility’s unique needs.

When it comes to healthcare and medical facilities, patient safety is paramount. It is critical that any potential contaminants are removed from air circulation to safeguard immune-comprised individuals from risk. Our consulting engineers have extensive experience designing Airflow & Ventilation systems for hospitals, patient facilities, and medical research centers. As a result, our accumulated expertise guides us in ensuring the safe, comfortable, and wellness-promoting environment for all occupants.

Our consulting engineers have designed both standard airflow systems and stringent, aseptic clean-room environments for aerospace facilities. From Spray Booth Exhaust systems for Boeing’s production line to Dust-Collection systems in Composite Horizons’ aerospace components manufacturing plant, we have expertise in ventilation design for hazardous particulate removal. Our team also has extensive experience designing Air-Quality Control Systems (AQCS) for aerospace cleanrooms, including custom filter banks and aseptic airflow systems for space-bound vessels, including facilities for aerospace company SpaceX.

When it comes to aerospace facilities, clinical laboratories, pharmaceutical clean-rooms, and medical device manufacturing, extreme levels of precision are required to ensure proper environmental control. With facilities that hold strict temperature, humidity, contamination and clean air requirements—both for regulatory and safety reasons—it is crucial that proper Air-Quality Control Systems (AQCS) are implemented to produce a stringently aseptic environment.

Our consulting engineering team has unparalleled experience designing specialty systems for such environments; from clean-rooms for aerospace facilities producing space-bound vessels to airflow systems in medical device facilities that manufacture allergen, autoimmune, and in-vitro products, we have produced bespoke system designs for the most exacting facilities in the world.

Our prior work includes the design of custom spray booth exhausts for Boeing, industrial Dust-Collection systems for Composite Horizons, Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms for Amgen, Contaminated Soil Remediation systems for EnviroPro, Heating & Fuel Distribution systems for the U.S. Navy, and many more that are viewable on our Projects page.

Kawada Hotel & Restaurant | Downtown LA

Hospitality & Dining

Kawada Hotel & Restaurant | Downtown LA

Located just blocks from Staples Center, the Kawada Hotel in Downtown L.A. was originally built in the 1920s. A historic building in the Civic District of Los Angeles, the hotel & restaurant underwent extensive renovations in 2004. California Energy Designs served as the mechanical engineering firm on this hospitality facility, designing new HVAC & Plumbing systems for the retrofitted hotel and restaurant. The project included the addition of individually-controlled air conditioning units in each of the commercial facility’s 116 suites.

Office Buildings

Belzberg Architects’ Offices | Santa Monica, CA

For the design of its own office facilities, Santa Monica-based Belzberg Architects took a highly innovative approach in addressing its energy needs. Our consulting engineers provided HVAC, Plumbing, and Air-Quality control expertise on the LEED-Certified project. The one-of-a-kind commercial facility utilized elements inherent in its coastal surroundings—including 100% passive ventilation from prevailing winds, channeled into the building by a specially designed wind tunnel—to achieve LEED-NC Gold-certification.

Integrated Building Solutions

We provide clients with bespoke system designs in the latest computer aided drafting formats. For applicable projects, we utilize Revit 3D to produce highly-versatile designs which allow for a more intricate and analytical Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow.

HVAC Design

We use the latest equipment that HVAC technology has to offer in order to successfully engineer and design commercial facility heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. We couple the latest equipment with standard air distribution and energy management systems.

Plumbing Design

Specializing in sophisticated and basic plumbing systems, we have extensive experience with radiant designs, sewage ejection systems, area drainage, fixture selection & plumbing calculations, riser diagrams, and solar for commercial heating systems.

Air-Quality Control Systems

From Air-Pollution management and Indoor Air-Quality (IAQ) wellness design applications to custom contaminant-control systems for clean-room facilities, we have extensive AQCS experience in virtually every sector. Our work includes performing conceptual studies, engineering, and design of equipment for reduction of hazardous air pollutants.

Wellness Design

Improved Environments for Improved Performance

Study after study continues to show the significant impact of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in commercial facilities. From increased occupant performance and psychological well-being to decreased sick-leave and energy cost-savings, it has become evident that energy-efficient facilities simply perform better.

When it comes to commercial wellness initiatives, everything begins with the engineering process to design high-performing energy systems. Our team has extensive experience in Air Quality Control Systems (AQCS), including a global partnership with wellness-organization, Delos Living.
