PE, LEED AP
"To me, integrated design means amalgamated - so much so that the architects think like engineers, and vice versa. I have seen this happen during design here at DLR Group, and even moments when clients think in these ways."
Surrander Naganathan offers the full-scale experience essential for good mechanical design. His experience includes project engineering, HVAC design, plumbing design, fire sprinkler design specifications, control specification, as well as life cycle cost and energy code analyses.
This variety allows Surrander to make good decisions for both the long and short term, keeping the project on budget and schedule with a vigilant eye. He efficiently integrates his mechanical design decisions with those of other disciplines early on to ensure quality at project completion.
"Right now is the time for mechanical and energy engineers to own the impact we can have on the AEC and ecological landscape. This is a defining moment in history as we work for the next fifteen years toward achieving the 2030 Challenge."
