National Engineering, Ltd is a mid-sized engineering consulting firm with offices in Columbus, OH and Denver, CO. In both offices we practice mechanical and electrical engineering for commercial buildings. Most of our design efforts are focused on small to mid-sized food service establishments and for those clients we design the HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, lighting and power distribution. Currently nearly all of our designs are completed using Building Information Modeling (BIM) with Autodesk’s Revit being our main modeling production tool. Our design methodology is to try apply simple solutions to complex problems. We firmly believe that simpler solutions will be more cost effective and easier to maintain. In our design process we try to not only address the initial construction concerns for the client but also the ongoing concerns of operation.
