We keep current with technological advances within our industry.  Extensive use and understanding of energy simulations, thermal load calculations, building information modeling (BIM), and computer aided design (CAD) software ensures our clients benefit from the latest technologies available.  All projects are developed using the latest version of AutoCAD or Revit MEP.   

Extensive knowledge of mechanical design, codes, and standards allows us to meet clients’ needs and local authorities’ requirements.  Projects are designed with a balance of first cost, energy efficiency, and maintenance requirements.  We are committed to providing quality, coordinated designs.

CR Engineering has served as prime consultant for many mechanical renovation and retrofit projects.  We have subcontracted architectural, civil, electrical, and structural consultants to provide the owner with a complete project.  This experience has strengthened our coordination and project management skills.

We continually make our clients’ visions a reality. Welcome to the growing list of clients who profit from CR Engineering's ability to overcome schedule demands, budget constraints, and project complexities.
