Engineering
& Design

Kirlin houses one of the largest and most experienced coordination and engineering departments in the industry. By adopting the most up-to-date computer assisted drawing technologies, our coordination and engineering professionals are able to refine and enhance mechanical design documents, which in turn fosters more efficient and timely construction.

Kirlin’s coordination and engineering department often leads the MEP trades in developing a coordinated approach for the fabrication and construction of plumbing and HVAC piping, hangers, supports, fixtures, equipment and other associated MEP components, such as ductwork. As part of our collaborative effort, we work with representatives of all the major construction trades to identify and resolve possible installation conflicts and design discrepancies prior to the start of site work.

By working with state of the art design technologies, Kirlin is able to develop three dimensional drawings and virtual 3D project models. This permits our construction team to build a “virtual project” months before our mechanical field forces even get to the site. This enables Kirlin to create fabrication and assembly drawings that are used to release major pieces of fabrication so that we stay on time and within budget.

Kirlin’s in-house engineering department excelled in the coordination effort by incorporating the requirements of the complex design, tight existing conditions and other trades work.  Kirlin’s engineering experience was invaluable in correcting the design to comply with local building codes…
