If your project goals include a healthy, energy-efficient building, or your building requires LEED, WELL, Net-Zero or Energy Star certification, blending new technology with Best Engineering practices is what we find works in Sustainable Design. Establishing Energy Use Intensity (EUI) targets, discussing Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) to achieve these targets, and working holistically with all team members early in the process is the recipe for an energy efficient and sustainable project.
I have personally worked with HAWA for over 20 years and can attest to their ability to provide excellent communication and service to their clients and colleagues. They are thoughtful in terms of their design and what is appropriate for the project, and their documents are thorough and well-coordinated. I enjoy working with HAWA, and I know that I am getting a high degree of value with their service.
Our firms have worked together since the earliest days of both companies, which goes back at least 40 years. Since we are both consultants working for the architect, collaboration and communication are key so we don’t hinder each other’s designs or create competing systems –such as duct vs. beam. HAWA does a great job of communicating with us to ensure that what needs to happen fits in the space and works efficiently to meet the architect’s and the owner’s goals. We are thankful for our business relationship with HAWA.
As structural engineers working on a variety of healthcare, retail, industrial and higher education projects, we understand the importance of solid communication– not only with the owner, but also other team members. We have worked with HAWA for several years and what stands out is that they always operate with integrity. It is a pleasure to collaborate with them on projects.
