Mechanical Engineering

Efficiency and sustainability fundamentally drive every system we design. Employing a high level of collaboration and client communication, our engineering solutions are optimized for performance as well as cost. From designing large, central plants to meeting local facilities requirements, our team leverages a deep knowledge base to ensure enduring, high-performing mechanical systems at any scale.

Modernizing Building Systems

Experience paired with careful research and observation inform our process — from facility planning to operation and maintenance needs to long-term master planning.

Our team focuses on clients needs. We strive to develop innovative designs that are both robust and cost-effective. Cushing Terrell has become an industry leader and trusted advisor for many facility managers, even years after many projects are complete.

Design For All Shapes and Sizes

Our team can tackle mechanical design for new systems, upgrades, and retrofits — for buildings of every shape, size, and functionality. Following are descriptions of some of the work we complete regularly:

Commissioning ensures your building’s systems perform optimally to keep operating costs at a minimum while providing maximum comfort for occupants. We identify and correct deficiencies for new and existing buildings, covering brief spans or indefinite periods of time.

Our integrated fire protection engineering services include code analysis and evaluation of alternative solutions. Our staff is trained under the guidance of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA).

From large central heating and cooling plants to the smallest rooftop units, our HVAC design philosophy is one that cuts wasteful engineering practices with common-sense measures designed to fit our clients’ budgets and operational costs.

Our ASSE-certified engineers specialize in designing medical gas systems for a wide range of healthcare facilities, including hospitals, clinics, and laboratories. We provide custom design solutions to meet the unique needs of each client and facility, and we procure the highest quality materials and equipment to ensure your medical gas system is safe, reliable, efficient, and meets all relevant safety and regulatory standards, including NFPA 99, NFPA 50, NFPA 54 and JCAHO standards.

We welcome even the most complex plumbing challenges, including domestic water heating systems, commercial kitchen spaces, grocery facilities, and medical gas systems. Never over-designed, our plumbing solutions are efficient and budget-conscious.

One of the largest refrigeration design groups in the country, our team offers a full range of services, from design to coordination, to construction document development, to comprehensive criteria development for large-scale programs. We specialize in natural refrigeration systems and emphasize energy efficiency in every design.

Temperature control systems have the largest impact on building comfort and efficiency, which is why we emphasize the application of this specialized service as a part of every mechanical design.
