Expertise DescriptionI have more than 15 years of experience in Mechanical Engineering with control systems design, systems commissioning and building engineering project management. In 2013 I established an engineering company and developed an integrated design process that optimizes mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and building systems designs with the end user in mind. I have years of field experience testing, commissioning, and troubleshooting various building systems and designs to pinpoint and resolve deficiencies, and I have spent a large portion of my career identifying design pitfalls, diagnosing anomalies, and developing solutions for operational and code compliance issues. I have prior expert witness experience.
Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes consulting for a mechanical contractor to evidence deficient engineering design and code compliance issues with bid documents.
My consulting experience includes design, commissioning, and energy consulting for various building systems for residential, data center, industrial, higher education, commercial, and health care facilities.
My professional experience includes positions as a Project and Senior Engineer, as well as HVAC Group Manager, and CEO of an engineering company.
I am an HVAC systems design engineer and specify and design boiler plants as part of my projects often. Typically, a boiler management system is packaged by the OEM on new equipment so it is not often that I need to dive into them.
The reference standard is NFPA 86 – which I can help interpret and put into layman’s terms. I have designed and commissioned an abundance of controls systems from a variety of manufacturers for a slew of different HVAC applications, and am intimately familiar with how they work, how operational sequences are programmed, and how they are tuned and commissioned.
While I have the credentials and expertise to assist and advise on controls systems, sequences, logic controllers, and PID loops, I must disclose that I do not have direct experience with testing the internals of a burner management system specifically.
