Ghattas Engineering offers as-needed consulting services to an Owner or Management Company that can range from:
- Troubleshooting of existing HVAC systems for operational problems
- Evaluation of existing HVAC systems for optimum operation
- Evaluation of new HVAC systems for proper selection
Extensive field investigation, including field test measurement, helps Ghattas Engineering identify system operational problems.
If required, Ghattas Engineering develops customized calculations to verify compatibility of building loads and system capacities. Ghattas Engineering’s findings are often presented to clients in a report format, specifically written to the intended reading audience. Often, troubleshooting and evaluating existing systems leads to development of design packages for system modifications.
Typically included in these design packages are system operating and calibration procedures, as well as procedures for field training of maintenance personnel.
When an Owner is considering installation of a new HVAC system, Ghattas Engineering offers an evaluation of the system based on operation, cost, installation, and maintenance. If alternative systems are being considered, Ghattas Engineering can develop a comparative evaluation to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of alternative systems. Long-term master planning for a facility’s future growth is another area of system evaluation that Ghattas Engineering offers.
