From the C-suite to the building engineer, energy has become a key consideration to everyone involved in a project. There are choices to be made concerning the types of energy for varying uses, as well as control of costs and economic incentives.
Our infrastructure specialists bring both vast experience and new, imaginative solutions to assignments. We pioneered the “tri-brid” concept — the use of natural gas, steam and electricity — for powering large-tonnage refrigeration plants. Our solutions are particularly focused on facilitating plant preventive maintenance and offering operational flexibility for the system.
Our site utilities services encompass detection and alarm systems, electric distribution systems, sewer systems, steam, chilled / hot water distribution, wastewater treatment, and water supply, treatment, and distribution.
AKF is adept at working under a variety of different project delivery methodologies. In any arrangement, we strive to identify, design, and implement solutions that solve critical facility challenges. We have extensive experience assembling project teams with an owner to provide integrated full service solutions that include architectural, civil, structural, and expediting services. In addition, we have sourced financing for owners- either through incentives, grants, rebates, or third party financing to help owners move from design through construction and operation within budgetary constraints.
