EnviroDesign is a fully integrated Mechanical & Electrical
Consulting Engineering Company. The name “ENVIRO” is used as we provide total
engineering for the interior environment of commercial buildings - Lighting,
Power, Heating and Air Conditioning, Plumbing, and Fire Protection. Engineers at EnviroDesign
are considered M&E engineers first and discipline specific engineers second, so
as to provide the most complete, coordinated project possible.
EnviroDesign, Inc. was founded in Denver in 1993, succeeding a
Texas corporation, Patton Engineers, in business since 1986. EnviroDesign
is currently operating with a staff of five, including four engineers, one designer, and one
EnviroDesign is best suited to unique projects as opposed to
“cookie cutter” or application of prototypes. The more difficult and complicated
the project, the better EnviroDesign is suited to be the engineer.
EnviroDesign has provided consulting engineering services for
a wide range of projects including office buildings, institutional projects,
tenant build-out, retail stores, renovations, retail centers (shopping malls,
power centers, and festive retail), hotels, movie theatres, performing arts
theatres, and assembly occupancies.
Movie theatres demand an unusually high level of engineering
experience and coordination due to the variety and complexity of acoustic,
architectural, and electrical systems. EnviroDesign has engineered more
multiplex movie theatres than any other entity in the world.
EnviroDesign is a national mechanical and electrical
engineering company. Ninety-nine percent (99%) of our projects are outside of
Texas. We emphasize bringing our engineering talents and expertise to
projects located throughout the United States.
Such wide spread experience provides clients with a single
source of engineers who can apply their corporate standards in multiple
locations while satisfying local codes and requirements.
Wherever our clients build, the chances are that EnviroDesign
has designed a project in the area and are familiar with the local code nuances.
EnviroDesign is innovative in improving the efficiency of the
engineered building as well as the engineering process.
EnviroDesign’s projects typically operate with the lowest
watts per square foot energy consumption in the industry. Our concept of
the "smart building" is one that makes money for the client, through lower
initial cost and lower operating cost.
Continuing improvements in the efficiency of the engineering
process result in greater production at competitive fees. Efficiency gains have
been realized through 100% CAD use (since 1987), Networking, e-mail, Electronic
Faxing, and the "no-draftsman" concept. Each engineer is
responsible for a project from start to finish.
EnviroDesign has also designed leading edge facilities
utilizing ice storage and cold air distribution.
