Professional Mechanical Engineering Consultants

Erecting a modern building from scratch, or restoring or remodeling one, demands specific building design and construction standards. Creating the former and observing the latter require a team led by an innovative mechanical engineering consulting company that partners with a team of commercial and industrial professionals.

In so doing, construction companies in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia build with the benefit of mechanical engineering solutions to the inevitable problems.

our solutions

Mechanical Engineering Consulting & Design Services We Provide

Mechanical design impacts every element of a commercial or industrial facility. Most functions are related to mechanical systems, and MNA offers mechanical engineering solutions that cause those functions to perform efficiently and safely.

HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Few locations are temperate all year round, so optimal climate control is necessary for the comfort, health, and safety of building occupants, not to mention temperature-sensitive machinery and equipment. Engineered solutions for HVAC are devised in the context of electrical and fire prevention systems, among others.

Plumbing Systems

Water is essential for life, and plumbing is essential for the delivery of clean, reliable water. A mechanical engineering consultant also recognizes the necessity of sanitation and expelling wastes and other matter by means of piping systems and conduits. Accordingly, the safety, arrangement, and organization of plumbing passages and valves are tethered to the built environments within the facility.

Fire Protection Systems

The suppression of damaging fire is a concern of mechanical consulting engineers. The design and placement of sprinkler systems, standpipes, and emergency hoses make all the difference between a modest outbreak and a conflagration. Specification for quick and simple access to water sources, indoor and outdoor, is a necessary component of effective fire suppression when the fire alarm gives notice.

Pipes
Smoke Control System

Smoke Control Systems

Flames are one danger from fires yet few can argue that smoke inhalation is just as fatal and destructive, particularly in institutional structures where a quick exit is more challenging. Mechanical engineer consulting finds the best design and devices that deflect smoke away from vulnerable populations.

Sectors We Serve

The field sector of services and special projects performed by MNA Quality Consulting is numerous and varied. All kinds of edifices, residential, commercial, public, credit MNA with significant improvement to structures and systems:

Building with pillars

Gathering Places

Operated by government and non-profit organizations include courthouses, archive depositories, exhibition halls, and athletic arenas.

Detention space

Detention Facilities

Might be for the imposition of justice or the protection of residents. These include penitentiaries, local jails, psychiatric hospitals, and other places of confinement.

Two medical workers

Healthcare Facilities

Run the gamut from hospitals and clinics to nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. 

Residential Building

Residential Housing

Can embrace apartment houses and hotels; In addition, foster care homes, college dormitories, daycare facilities, and religious housing also require detailed mechanical engineering designs.

Office Building

Wholesale and Retail Establishments

Are anywhere that assets exchange hands for pay. Such places could be supermarkets, consumer outlets, small shops, department stores, and venues for individual producers to exhibit their wares.

firefighter

Industrial Buildings

Are of high, medium, or low hazard levels. High includes warehouses and processing centers that deal with flammable fluids and volatile chemicals, for example, the medium includes many factories, lumber yards, and assembly plants, while low hazard industry encompasses storage of non-hazardous materials, open-air parking lots, and creameries.

our process

Our Mechanical Engineering Consulting Solutions Process

To maximize the safety, efficiency, and comfort of a building in any sector, we follow a tried-and-true process that leads to implemented mechanical engineering solutions.

Advice and Consultation

We prepare preliminary estimates for project costs and time consumption. In addition, we engage our clients in initial meetings to confirm a unified vision of the project while presenting drawings and models for discussion. We also advise on permits and inspections.

Mechanical Engineering Project Services

In this next phase, our mechanical consulting engineers work out a project plan that conforms to client objectives, time limitations, and financial resources. During this stage, we also assess the feasibility and confer with outside mechanical engineering design service providers.

Conceptual Design

At this point, the mechanical consulting engineers begin to place parameters on the concepts: location of the project, its size, and scope, the selection of tools, technology, and approach, the adoption of what resources from which to draw, sketches, external reports, and briefs, as well as client specifications and agreed-upon project criteria.

Preliminary Design

After receiving inputs from other engineers and experts involved, the MNA mechanical engineering consulting firm produces exploratory design drawings. At the same time, we procure the necessary applications for approval from those government offices from whom permissions are issued.

Detailed Design

Detailed design is the phase where flesh is put on the bones, i.e. specifications and drawings become more definitive and precise than the initial, more general, renderings. Along with meticulous representations of the smoke control, HVAC, and fire suppression systems, MNA transfers the particulars to the contractual agreements and the applications for construction permits.

Construction Procurement

This consultive stage finds the mechanical engineering design service providing counsel and resources with regard to evaluating bids by contractors, tendering offers, and composing the contracts that go to successful bidders. Because of the unique technical and complex nature of each project, boilerplate contracts and agreements are not sufficient.

Construction Administration

MNA Quality Consulting offers multiple services once the actual work commences. Among these are notices of proposed changes from owner to contractor, orders for changes, on-site monitoring, examination of shop drawings for compliance with approved designs, approving contractor payment requests, participating in the construction project, and addressing problems that may arise.

Technology and Software Tools We Use

Modern building construction benefits from powerful software and sensitive measuring devices to assess and produce designs that are highly rigorous in terms of accuracy and precision. Some of the technology at our disposal is:

  • AutoCAD (computer-aided design) by Autodesk - a two- and three-dimensional design program favored by most architects, drafters, and engineers.

It has been a great pleasure working with Monika. Her ability to influence others to achieve the team's vision is remarkable. Her endless support proved to be a great asset for any team out there that are looking for a great motivational supporter. Her knowledge brought upfront at the start of project and has been playing a valuable role since. It was a bitter sweet moment when the project was done and have to say goodbye to her as we all value her work very much.
