Design Phase

Once a project has been approved, it is necessary to develop a comprehensive design that will serve as the basis of project implementation. This is so, whether contracted for separately, as in the case of a standard plan and specification arrangement, or as part of a turn-key design-build initiative. During this phase, the preliminary designs that were used as a basis of project cost estimating and other feasibility analyses are brought to completion over a series of phases. Final engineering analysis, such as zoning and sizing calculations, are performed and equipment selections are finalized. A design document package is produced that contains, at a minimum, all procedures, drawings, specifications, design analyses, cost estimates,

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
