The Importance and Value in Hiring a Professional
Updated: Feb 18
As the year continues to roll on, the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission recommends the hiring of a professional engineer in order to best assess a given facility’s ability to minimize disease transmission. A professional engineer is required to be up-to-date on the latest matters of code, in addition to maintaining familiarity with the industry’s latest technological advances.
Through their education and training, engineers are capable of finding the inefficiencies in existing systems. Further, due to the wide variety of projects and facility types encountered by mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers, they're able to overcome the tricky challenges that some spaces present.
Whether it's been five years or fifty years since a facility's last renovation, a professional engineer delivers recommendations on how to maximize that space's systems in the present.
Additionally, hiring an engineer to review a facility can help owners learn about potential savings, both in terms of energy efficiency and finding funding. The State of Ohio Beaurau of Worker’s Compensation is offering funding through the end of March to help certain types of facilities upgrade their ventilation systems.
Receiving an evaluation and assessment from a professional can help the facility find affordable upgrades now while saving on maintenance and hassle down the line.
John Milenius, PE, LEED AP, Director of Mechanical Engineering, at Tec Inc. Engineering & Design is an expert in mechanical systems assessments and can assist facilities to find potential state funding before the governor’s offer expires at the end of the month.
