Electrical engineer promotes CH2M HILL industrial expertise in Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine interview
July 8, 2013 - I&AT Electrical Discipline Manager Brian Martin/PDX was recently asked to participate in an "MEP Roundtable" discussion in Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine with three other industry experts on a variety of topics related to engineering systems in manufacturing and industrial buildings.
The roundtable centered on the fact that manufacturing and industrial facilities have unusual engineering requirements, especially air handling, power needs, and fire/life safety systems.
Here's a link to the discussion in Consulting-Specifying Engineer where you can read Brian weighing in on several related topics including some of the advanced building modeling software CH2M HILL uses, engineering of fire suppression systems, navigating code issues in advanced industrial buildings, designing backup power systems, high-voltage challenges, unique lighting systems, and incorporating renewable energy systems into manufacturing/industrial facilities.
