PWA Engineering utilizes modern technologies and design concepts for analyzing the use of energy efficient and sustainable components to their designs. We pride ourselves on staying current with modern technologies and utilize modern lighting control systems incorporating daylight harvesting, interconnection of lighting controls with building management systems (integrating HVAC operation with lighting controls), timers, photocells, and occupant detectors.
PWA Engineering has been involved in many successful sustainable projects implementing LEED (Silver, Gold and Platinum), Green Globes or National Energy Code of Canada standards.
Other areas of energy management experience include peak demand shedding and power factor correction through the use of capacitor banks. Modern, efficient methods of motor controls are also utilized where applicable, such as the use of VFD’s, VSD’s and electronic, solid state, soft starters.
