Today’s mechanical systems are increasingly complex. Heating systems, cooling systems, heat recovery ventilation, plumbing, and electronic control systems become completely integrated. Our start-to-finish integrated design approach considers all factors to deliver the best integrated system to suit your project’s specific needs including conventional, geothermal, VRF and other technologies
SCMI’s owners and estimators focus on project objectives and to seek out the information required to select the best system for our clients. Buildings are complex. Are electric furnaces, or a central VRF/Geothermal hybrid system the best option for your project? Central building HRV, or individual suite HRVs? Wading through all this information can be challenging, which is why we candidly share costs on all these options with owners, engineers and architects to ensure our client gets the best overall system for their needs.
Before construction begins, we meet with all stakeholders to review your project, your budget, your expected operational efficiency, and your mechanical configuration options — including conventional and geothermal.
We are committed to providing long-term solutions. Many of our commercial and industrial customers leverage a planned service contract for the best possible preventative maintenance program for your equipment.
We compile energy reports, provide real-world data on equipment/labour costs, and fight hard to ensure that the right mechanical system is being designed for the project stakeholders. Some projects require simple electric furnaces, whereas others require high end hybrid geothermal/VRF systems.
Our comprehensive HVAC teams have the talent, experience and drive to overcome any challenges associated with today's HVAC equipment.
We calculate your operational costs and your system payback, while providing you with the environmental impact of your selected design. This helps you select the best system solution for your budget and operational needs.
SCMI worked as the design/build consultation for Niverville Community Resource Centre. This 99,000-square-foot structure included an indoor iceplex, indoor fieldhouse and in-flooring heating. To accommodate the complex heating and cooling needs, SCMI decided on a large Tempeff® HRV (heat recovery ventilation) system as well as a Waterfurnace® geothermal central plant system to cool the ice.
