Engineering

Engineering is the foundation of outstanding mechanical systems. The challenge is to transform innovative ideas into practical and reliable systems.

We focus beyond the initial installation to ensure that your system is designed to last and function reliably for many years under varying conditions and requirements. Our engineers utilize the experience of our commissioning and service professionals to design systems that will be serviceable and perform efficiently for the long term.

Whether your needs are large or small, simple or complex, our engineering staff will work with your design team and contractors to guarantee you are provided with the best design to meet your requirements and that it is complete, coordinated and code compliant.

Below is a brief list of the services we provide:
• 3-D Modeling and Design Coordination
• Preconstruction Services and Planning
• Energy Conservation
• Systems Evaluation/Comparison and Economic Analysis
• Code Compliance or Variances
• LEED Certification
• Retrofits & Upgrades
• Applications Engineering

We look forward to each new assignment and the opportunity to share the experience and knowledge we have gained over our 100 years in the industry

BIM / VDC

Geo. H. Wilson utilizes Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and 3-D CAD visualization software for preconstruction trade coordination and product fabrication for HVAC, process piping and plumbing projects. Due to the space impact of these systems, Geo. H. Wilson leads the coordination process and works with the general contractor and subcontractors to facilitate and manage coordination utilizing Navisworks software. Geo. H. Wilson has the capability to facilitate 3-D coordination meetings including creation and management of clash detection reports. Coordination meetings can be held in our offices, facilitated at a jobsite, or hosted electronically utilizing web conferencing.  Additionally, we have the ability to design and detail in native Revit models. This enables us to seamlessly integrate into the architectural models to understand the spatial requirement for our duct and pipe.

Geo. H. Wilson has more than 20 years of experience utilizing Autodesk Fabrication to accelerate our plumbing, sheet metal and piping fabrication. Applying lean construction principles, our 3-D capability permits significant prefabrication for “just-in-time” delivery.

Our recent experience with challenging coordination projects includes HVAC, process piping and plumbing scopes within hospitals, laboratories, and GMP manufacturing facilities. Geo. H. Wilson brings knowledge and depth to any design and construction team providing a catalyst for successful implementation of VDC.
