Our Services

Building Services

Customized, responsive engineering design makes all the difference when it comes to building safety, comfort, performance, sustainability and overall functionality. Our in-depth understanding of the built environment includes mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design, as well as structural and geotechnical engineering services.

Attentive and dedicated, we partner with our clients to help them achieve their unique goals for buildings and other vertical structures. We offer innovative yet practical design solutions for a broad range of building challenges.

MEP 

Tighe & Bond has in-house staff dedicated to building system operations, and the ability to apply energy efficient designs involving the selection of efficient equipment. Our electrical engineering capabilities range from design of power distribution systems, standby and emergency power systems, indoor and outdoor lighting, fire detection and alarm systems, and utility process systems.

Our engineers design heating, ventilation and air conditioning, plumbing and fire protections systems for new construction and building renovations. We also provide commissioning services during building design, construction, and post-occupancy to support energy efficient building design and operation.

Our design experience features:

  • AutoCAD MEP, Revit, and NavisWorks
  • Building Energy Modeling for LEED Compliance
  • Conditions Assessment and Equipment Evaluation
  • Construction Feasibility, Sequencing, and Coordination
  • Design/Build or Design/Bid/Build
  • Employee Training Services (NFPA 70E)
  • LEED Documentation
  • Life Cycle Cost Analysis
  • Master Planning
  • Opinion of Probable Cost and Value Engineering
  • Permitting and Rebate Applications
  • Startup Assistance

 

Structural 

We provide building design and inspection for new facilities, as well as addition or renovation projects. We evaluate and design all building structural systems. This includes roof decks, beams and girders, columns, masonry bearing walls, below grade concrete walls, and structural slabs. Our structural engineers also design equipment support structures, tanks and containment structures, as well as vehicular and pedestrian bridges.

Geotechnical 

Clients also count on us to design foundations for buildings, smokestacks, water tanks, silos and other structures in all soil conditions. We have the expertise to handle every aspect of the design process from on-site supervision of the subsurface exploratory work, to the preparation of biddable construction documents and construction observation.

We have developed designs and construction methodologies to allow the construction of buildings, roadways, and embankments over very weak and highly compressible foundation soils. We are experts in geotextile reinforcement design for improving slope and surficial stability, and for subgrade strength.
