ELECTRICAL

Design / Build Engineering: Engineering Built for Contractors

We feel design/build is the leading edge contractual model that will revolutionize the way our industry develops over the next few decades, and we’ve organized our business around the tenets of a design/build relationship.

e3i is one of the first specialty electrical engineering firms in the region dedicated to the design/build arrangement.

Design/build is a popular project delivery method across North America, and is gaining traction in New England and the Northeast. Several contractors are employing this model, but few electrical engineering firms have this as their primary focus. While many contractors seek the lowest-cost solutions, design/build partnerships foster a higher-level of engineering for a more valuable outcome. Additionally, our positive working relationships with contractors is an asset to our clients. Because we understand the contractor work-flow and our place within it, we are able to integrate into their process to make the biggest positive impact, and mitigate construction set-backs.

Our dedication to design/build is an important item that sets us apart.

Likewise, we specialize in design/assist when design/build is not an option. We communicate well across all team members, and support the contractor’s best interests when decisions are on the table. Our collaborative and proactive mentality fills the gaps to deliver our projects to the client’s satisfaction.

 

e3i provides the following design/build and design/assist services:

 

  • Electrical design

  • Arc flash calculations and labeling

  • Short citcuit, coordination, and arc flash studies

  • Single point of failure consulting 

  • Value engineering

  • Third-party engineering reviews

  • Professional opinion papers

Design Assist Engineering (DAE)

DAE is a service method by which a contractor selects an engineering design firm to be their advocate and provide assistance to said contractor on a particular project. The DAE professional is retained by said contractor and seperate from the engineer of record (EOR).

The DAE is an integral and active member of the team and is the installing contractor’s link to the design process.

The role of the design assist professional (DAP) is to be the representative of the installation contractor throughout the design and construction phases of the project, but may be limited to the construction phase only.The DAE’s involvement can be for a single design or construction phase of a project but it is recommended that their involvement begin at the conceptual phase. Services include:

 

  • Design suggestions and value engineering ideas

  • System design, redesign and coordination

  • Calculations

  • Equipment selection

  • Room layouts

  • Specialty systems

  • Coordinate risers and one-lines

  • Attend meetings and site visits

  • Status of construction

  • Purpose design solutions to problems or challenges identified in field

  • Opinion letters and reports

  • Infrastructure review and assessments

  • Power system studies (including short circuit and coordination)

ENERGY

e3i provides consulting services for co-generation, energy efficiency and solar applications.

Energy engineering comes in many forms. Our clients rely upon our combined 50+ years of experience to review their facility and, very quickly, assess the needs for energy solutions. We have the technical knowledge to address all energy-related issues, and the understanding to know what to look for and what solutions to apply.

Our unique combination of design experience and energy energineering analysis will provide energy solutions that will reduce lifecycle costs and are feasible for implementation.

e3i Engineers has a comprehensive energy approach in which equipment, usage, and energy conservation opportunities are identified; utility savings are calculated; and simple payback or lifecycle costs are determined.

Our resolutions are proven to have saved clients time, money, and most importantly, down-time.

We expect our clients to be smart about conservation and to make decisions positively impacting their business. We expect the same from ourselves.

 

Whether entering a building with aging equipment or reviewing a new project in design, our focus is to meet out clients' energy goals while adhering to their financial criteria.

e3i provides the following energy services:

  • Building energy audits

  • Energy modeling/simulations

INFRASTRUCTURE

Not all facilities are alike, and each requires a specific solution to support the electrical engineering and power needs of its structure.

 

We stress that "one size does not fit all"’. There’s a reason for that. We evaluate each building or campus and quickly determine the infrastructure needs of that parcel. Our extensive experience lends credibility to our solutions, and helps owners make better-informed decisions based on our advice. e3i’s value comes from the fact that principals are involved in every project from start to finish, which clients depend on to efficiently determine the risks and rewards on how these solutions will impact their bottom line.

e3i brings their leadership, experience and long history of success to all of your projects.

Independent engineering advocate? Independent Engineer?

Who needs that? YOU do!

The EMS engineer provides experienced engineering talent to assist the owner or owner’s representative during concept, design and construction phases of a project. The role may focus on a single project or may be spread over multiple projects for the same owner. The most basic definition of an owner’s engineer is an individual or team of experienced professionals that serve as an independent advocate for the owner. The owner’s engineer supports a critical role by filling gaps and supplementing the owner’s technical resources.

Our purpose and client benefit: to fill the experience gap!

As the EMS engineer, e3i can add highly qualified engineers to a project's team who can focus on:

 

  • Enhanced collaboration

  • Confirming the right system(s)
