Consulting Engineer Expertise
Consulting Engineer Story
As a Consulting Engineer, D.B.K. maintains a high degree of commitment to its operations while providing MEP consulting engineering services. Since its inception, the company has grown and has been serving a variety of local, national and international clients. D.B.K. Engineering Ltd. is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and Canada Green Building Council and is registered with APEGA, APEGS, EGBC, PEO, APEGM, and NAPEG.
MEP System Design
At D.B.K., we design the building MEP systems including the HVAC, Plumbing, Sprinkler, Electrification, Power Distribution, Data Cabling, Fire Alarm, etc. Our design complies to relevant buildings codes (for instance Alberta Building Code), National Plumbing Code, National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB), Fire Codes (for instance Alberta Fire Code) and all applicable standards, such as ASHRAE, NPFA, NEC, IEEE, etc. D.B.K. is the number one choice for any architectural firms or any design-build companies when it comes to designing large scale commercial, institutional, distribution centre, retail, warehouse, office, and multi-family residential buildings. Our design team is well conversed with AutoCAD and Revit MEP. Moreover, we perform system audit for existing mechanical and electrical systems.
BIM-360/Autodesk Construciton Cloud
At D.B.K., not only we do building information modelling (BIM) using the Revit, but we also do Design Collaboration and Model Collaboration using Autodesk BIM360 for Revit models before 2021 and ACC for Revit Models after 2021. With the collaboration pro, we work on a live model for building MEP systems including the HVAC, Plumbing, Electrification, Power Distribution, Data Cabling, Fire Alarm, etc. while fixing all anticipated conflicts that the contractors would eventually face during the construction.
As Autodesk has mentioned that “when working on 2D documents in BIM360 or in ACC Design Collaboration, you can now create markups. Markups are used to communicate updates, changes, and other critical information across a project. The markups toolset offers a variety of options for team members to manage and fine-tune an additional layer of information on the project design documents.“
Integrated Life Safety Commissioning
D.B.K. offers ‘Commissioning of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems’ services as required by Alberta Building Code. At D.B.K., we prepare the IST (Integrating System Testing) Plan and perform the test for all interrelated systems including the fire alarm, sprinkler & standpipe, fire pumps, electromagnetic locks, smoke control, ventilation, pressurization, elevator recalls, emergency power & lighting, kitchen fire suppression systems, etc.
MEP Field Review
Design is important, so is the Field Review. During construction, we provide project management, field review and construction administration services for the mechanical and electrical systems to ensure that the construction meets the design intent. Moreover, we work closely with the inspection team from Authority Having Jurisdiction to mitigate issues that may arise out of code interpretation.
