VERTEX provides Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering for Developers, Owners, and Property Managers.
VERTEX has extensive experience in high and medium-voltage substation design, transformer replacement and rehabilitation, generator installation for emergency backup power, and electrical power distribution systems for industrial, transit, commercial, educational, medical, and recreational facilities. These facilities include airports, tunnels, bridges, hospitals, and parks. VERTEX provides these engineering services to private clients, state, municipal, and public authorities.
Our engineering services are supported by a database network and by our in-house CADD facilities. VERTEX is committed to supporting its clients during all phases of construction, from bid review to commissioning.
Designing safe, clean, and comfortable, yet cost-effective building environments is a critical part of every successful facility engineering program. Safety, energy efficiency, and cost-effectiveness are only a few of the conflicting requirements that must be balanced while working within a strict and often complex regulatory framework.
VERTEX designs heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), plumbing, and fire protection systems for commercial, public, industrial and institutional facilities. We provide mechanical engineering for high-and-low-rise office buildings, central energy plants, computer centers, training facilities, laboratories, industrial facilities, garages, and mass transportation facilities.
Smoke control systems are designed with the purpose of limiting smoke movement within high-rise structures, atria, and other select occupancies to provide safe egress of building occupants. The design of smoke control systems often requires a specific combination of adequate equipment sizing, careful fire alarm and control design, and proper placement of fans and dampers.
Our engineering staff are experienced with the design, consulting, and special inspections of smoke control systems including complete zoned building systems, stairwell pressurization systems, and atrium systems.
