Mechanical, Electrical and Process (MEP) Engineering

MEP Engineering

Inspiring the Systems that Power your Facilities

Our engineers have the space to thrive, the opportunity to hone their expertise, and the time to engineer solutions for problems in the community. These experiences motivate our teams to be the partner you need to understand goals, acknowledge current demands, and anticipate future needs for a new or changing facility, and then develop a sustainable design needed to make the building work specifically for you.

At Hallam-ICS, we design MEP systems that turn end users’ ideas into functional plans for high-performance research facilities, production plants, educational buildings and healthcare campuses. Our MEP engineering experts know your power, cooling, heating, lighting, water, and gas/chemical systems inside and out so you don’t have to.

Case Study: Chiller Upgrade Engineering Design

As the world’s largest biopharmaceutical company, Pfizer has facilities all around the world. Effectively utilizing their research and manufacturing space and managing their utility costs is an on-going challenge with a double bottom line impact; minimizing their energy costs while also reducing their carbon footprint. With a resume of implementing sustainable designs in industrial environments, Hallam-ICS was selected to provide MEP engineering services for a chiller upgrade at one of Pfizer's research and manufacturing facilities.

DC to AC Drive Conversion

Whitepaper: DC to AC Drives Conversion

Replacing a DC motor with an AC motor is not as simple as buying a new
motor with the same horsepower rating and installing it in place of the
old one. For a successful conversion, many details must be addressed.

This whitepaper will examine torque and speed, including constant speed vs. variable speed applications, speed control, and installation consideration.  It also discusses the secondary benefits of switching from DC to AC motors.

Pros and Cons of Different Economizer Configurations for Data Centers

As many people know, running an air conditioner is energy intensive and expensive.  The solution to this, that applies to all types of buildings but is magnified by the scale of the data center, is an economizer.

An economizer in the mechanical engineers world is a device or system that takes advantage of environmental conditions to reduce the cooling load on the system.  It is often referred to as “free-cooling” because it allows you to turn off the compressors, which are the major energy consumer in a mechanical system.

Being An ACE Mentor: Benefiting Students While Strengthening The Construction Industry

Fifteen years ago, a co-worker asked me if I would be willing to be a mentor in his place when he had commitments that prevented him from continuing to participate.  Not having any previous experience as a mentor, I did not know what to expect.  Going to my first day as a mentor, I worked with a group of Architects, Contractors and Engineers that works with inner-city high school students to develop a project from a concept to building a massing model to doing a presentation of the project at the end of a fifteen week program.

“Yesterday, we load tested the 800KVA HD-2 UPS system and all testing went off with out a problem, thanks to Hallam-ICS. We are now ready to commission the two PDU’s in the Data Center and then hand the system over to the Data Center Group. Thanks to all at Hallam-ICS in the support of this project. Jim Rickards of MGE who completed the testing stated that it was one of the best installs that he had seen.”
