The Budlong electrical design and engineering team provides full service high end electrical design that is comprehensive and relevant to the size and needs of the project. The team’s design approach is focused on flexibility, integration, efficiency, and sustainability.
The team includes specialists in electrical engineering design and electrical drafting who are experienced in designing full-service systems for any size project in a variety of market sectors, including large scale industrial and commercial projects.
We offer a variety of engineering services in Electrical systems as listed:
As part of a Aquatic Center, the goal was to provide a LEED Gold Certified Building Design.
The challenge involved the space programming. The owner wanted to provide on-site power generation as part of the budget and obtain LEED points. The typical approach is to provide a photovoltaic system (solar panels). Still, for this you need a structure that provides the square-footage required for such a system. The architectural design did not allow for the necessary square-footage due to budget.
We came up with the design solution to provide a Microturbine to have on-site power generation and LEED points. The pool system consisted of having pool heaters. The pool heaters were eliminated, and the Microturbine took the pool heaters’ place as double-action duty. The Microturbine was incorporated to provide heating for the pool water and to generate power at the same time. With this design approach, we could accommodate the on-site power generation and stay within budget as the Microturbine cost offset the heaters’ cost.
The power generated from the Microturbines provides almost a Net-Zero for the pool equipment pumps.
