Systems are designed to maximize efficiencies and minimize maintenance while being cost effective. Coordination with the architect and owner during the initial design is critical to achieving the design that you want. Design will continue with detailed coordination with interior designers, landscape, structural, civil and mechanical engineers. Energy savings are accomplished by providing effective lighting design which minimizes the total watts per foot of the project and make the project suitable for utility rebates. Efficiencies are further improved by providing automated lighting controls using sensors and timers. Every project is peer reviewed prior to being issued for tender to ensure that the information provided within the drawings and specifications meets design intent and applicable codes/standards.
OPAL Engineering will follow the project through the construction process and work with the construction team to ensure that schedules are met and adjustments are made in a reasonable fashion to suit site conditions and owner expectations. Construction field reviews will be completed at the rough-in, substantial and occupancy stages of construction. Additional reviews will be provided as noted in the fee proposal. Each field review will be complete with a report to make the construction team and designers aware of current status as well as any issues that need to be addressed. All additional electrical costs put forward will be assessed by OPAL to ensure that values are reasonable for the labour and materials required to complete the task.
