We Are Committed to Remaining on The Leading Edge of Technology
Building Information Modeling
McVeigh & Mangum has successfully embraced and integrated the technology of Building Information Modeling (BIM). As a full service engineering firm, the benefits of the cross-discipline collaborative development of three dimensional designs is clearly evident. As all disciplines work from a common three dimensional model, the integration of the functional relationships of multiple disciplines, along with the automated interference checking capability of BIM, facilitates our efforts to produce accurate and well-coordinated designs.
Commissioning is a documented process that improves the performance of the building’s systems. Our accredited commissioning agents (QCxP) have successfully commissioned both LEED® and non-LEED® projects. McVeigh & Mangum’s team-oriented approach fosters communication between construction personnel and the design team, thereby minimizing potential construction delays. This ensure that your project’s system performs to expectations and performs more efficiently.
Electrical Engineering / Technology
MME’s electrical staff has provided services for a diverse number of projects from small tenant up-fits to complex industrial facilities requiring 24,000-volt electrical services.
Our technology design capabilities encompass all of the project’s electrical needs including the design of control, fire alarm, data, and communications systems tailored for the specific demands and budget of the project. We have also designed lightning protection and backup power systems (generators and/or UPS systems) for many facilities to carry them through nature’s tests of local utilities.
We are fully committed to meet and exceed our client’s Fire Sprinkler Design needs. With the use of the latest technology, we are able to provide our clients with the highest quality of service for the most challenging and time sensitive fire sprinkler projects. Utilizing the latest design and hydraulic calculation software, we will provide drawings that will be ready to submit to the Authority Having Jurisdiction.
Stewardship of the environment is one of our priorities. Over the past several years we have been recognized as a leader in educating the design and construction community throughout the Southeast on sustainable design and the benefits of incorporating LEED® philosophy into projects. Our LEED® Accredited Professionals have served as primary LEED® consultants on several projects, assuming responsibility for leading design charities and registering projects for certification with the U.S. Green Building Council.
MME’s mechanical/plumbing staff is experienced in the design of simple split-system heat pumps, packaged rooftop units, and complex chilled water systems with variable volume air distribution systems. We have produced economical and efficient HVAC system designs as well as plumbing designs for sanitary waste/vent systems, domestic water systems, roof drainage systems, medical gas systems, and full gas systems for a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial projects.
MME’s structural staff is experienced in the design of structures built in reinforced concrete, structural steel, post-tensioned concrete, masonry, pre-cast concrete, aluminum, and timber. Our experience includes concrete floor systems of post-tensioned flat slabs, pan joists, flat slabs, pre-stressed joists, cast-in-place beams, pre-stressed double tees, hollow core, and tilt-up concrete wall panels. Our steel design experience includes floor systems of composite steel beams, bar joists, steel beams and steel trusses.
