Our Approach

Sound engineering concepts are the key to developing a building that best suits the desired use and delivers on projected energy costs and ease of maintenance.

FEA Consulting Engineers approaches the conceptual stage differently than other firms. Instead of waiting to provide configurations of various systems at the time schematic documents are submitted, we provide these concepts at the start of the schematic phase. This ensures that desired systems becomes part of the overall design and the facility can accommodate the componentry. The building operators and owners vet concepts through detailed questionnaires and menu style options presented, in addition with our opinions of probable cost and real-world payback data.

Our designs fall far from the cookie cutter models normally presented. We offer designs that are innovative and match the business model of the ultimate user. This understanding of the purpose and intent of the building is essential in the early phases of design.
