Performance | Control | Maintenance

YKH's mechanical engineering team focuses on building performance, controllability, useful life, energy use, maintainability, and elegant integration with the architectural design. A building's HVAC, plumbing and fire protection systems can account for a significant portion of a project’s construction or remodeling cost.


Our mechanical engineers develop cost-effective and energy-efficient designs that help our clients meet their facility goals and project budgets, and yet are flexible enough to allow for system maintenance and future expansion. 


Our mechanical work includes the evaluation, design and specification of:
