It’s no secret that the past decade has seen a strong push toward Building Energy Modelling and more sustainable-minded design. Mechanical engineering is one of the driving forces that helps to influence sustainable features including using renewable materials, designing energy and power systems with longevity in mind, and creating long-term maintenance plans that address natural degradation that comes with time and exposure to the elements etc.

Integrating Smart Technology

Smart technology has become an integral part of building for the future, with many of today’s development leaders finding new ways to integrate leading-edge tech into their properties. From moderating energy consumption to streamlining HVAC and other essential operations, smart technology has made significant advancements in the construction industry and mechanical engineers are consistently at the forefront of determining the best applications for new resources.


Mechanical engineering is driven by the principle of not only finding a way to make things work but to find the most efficient and productive way of doing so.
