cOLLABORATION at every level

Patton Air Conditioning has four engineers on staff with a collective 90 years of design experience. This allows each project engineer to give his project the undivided attention that it deserves.

The other engineers competently handle the remaining project backlog. It is common for two or more engineers to brainstorm design solutions to provide a superior HVAC system.

At Patton Air Conditioning, each project engineer stays with the project from design development, preliminary budget estimating, design, final cost estimating and project management during construction. He coordinates the HVAC with other disciplines throughout the design process integrating architectural, structural, electrical and plumbing concerns into our system with strong consideration for construction activities. The result is a design that meets the criteria and has the majority of typical conflicts designed out of the system.

During the design process, the project engineer also provides budgets for the HVAC system. This process of designing and budgeting by the same experienced individual creates a sensitivity to cost without sacrificing system integrity.

During construction, the same project engineer manages the installation of the air conditioning system. This includes:

  • Being the office contact person
  • Attending job site meetings
  • Handling job site issues and conflicts
  • Project administration, correspondence, submittals, etc.
  • Purchasing and arranging for the delivery of equipment and materials
  • Coordination with other trades
  • Project  close-out documentation

A key characteristic to this “lifestyle” approach is that the same person responsible for the efficient design is also responsible for the budget. This provides a system that is effective in both performance and price.
