The team at LKPB Engineers brings their effective, client-focused design methods to every project. Through hands-on involvement and personal commitment, we offer our partners and clients an unmatched level of service.

Smart Design Solutions.
Before design begins on a large project, LKPB recommends a pre-design process be completed. During the pre-design process, a variety of studies are completed that will help guide and inform the design phase of the project. Projected costs, site constraints, opportunities, and any space requirement considerations are carefully analyzed before any design work is completed..

The studies we conduct during the pre-design process will vary depending on the scope of your project, but typically include:

  • Site Analysis. We thoroughly analyze the planned or existing infrastructure to better understand how it may impact your project’s design.

  • Programming.We listen to you the user. What are your needs? What’s on your wish list? From that we determine the best approach to the mechanical and electrical systems to meet the project needs.

  • Cost Analysis. We will provide you with a construction budget total that can be used to help guide project management. We are there to answer your questions and look at options.

  • Program/Budget Balance. In this process we closely examine every aspect of the site analysis and programming, and balance this with the projected budget.

Mechanical systems, such as plumbing, HVAC, and fire protection systems, typically account for a substantial percentage of a project’s total costs. Missteps at the pre-design stage of a construction project can prove costly. The HVAC and mechanical pre-design experts at LKPB Engineers can offer valuable insight and expert advice to help determine what systems are best-suited for any project, for practical and cost-effective solutions.
