At VP Engineering, we look forward to doing our small part in helping our elders realize the retirements that they so richly deserve.

For those who design senior living facilities, the +Environments for Aging (EFA) conference is a must-attend. As an academic conference, those who attend learn about the latest senior living design trends and the data that set and guide those trends. Of all the conferences I have attended over the years, the EFA conferences stand out the most.

After riding the wave of the recession, we at VP Engineering have been privileged to experience the growth of construction and building in our region, and, in particular, here in Charlotte. An unexpected yet wonderful offshoot of this growth is the rise of the Queen City’s Craft Brew industry.

LEED identifies best-in-class building designs, and we stay abreast of the latest developments and harness state of the art technologies and techniques. Innovation and natural design techniques that incorporate energy efficient methodologies are critical in this field, and our engineers excel at both.

A client of ours has an office on the second floor of a mixed-use building in a high-end retail development that they designed. It’s a beautiful development—the buildings are tastefully designed and the site is thoughtfully laid out. The building’s masonry, details, textures, and colors flow well with the storefronts of the high-end retailers and the expensive apartments above.

Every plumbing design we do is integrated into the overall building plan as a whole, rather than added as a patchwork later. This allows us to not only ensure every piece is efficiently and effectively placed, but also lets us minimize the amount of material usage.

In order to have a successful client/engineer relationship, though, it is mandatory that we focus on the relational skills that don’t always come naturally.

Electrical engineering does not need to be a daunting challenge you cringe away from. We make sure your electrical system design is thought about from the beginning and can help you understand how and why it is designed as it is.

In the A/E field, effective communication is vital to meeting due dates, conveying intent, understanding code issues, and explaining design decisions. On every project, we make decisions that will cost the owner money and we need to clearly explain why. When competent communication occurs among the design team, great things happen. So how do we communicate better as an A/E team?
