Mechanical systems have a direct impact on the human experience within any building. Human comfort is not just a thermal issue; it comes from the knowledge that our lives and the properties we inhabit are protected by integrated fire protection systems, clean tap water, responsible energy usage, prime indoor air quality, and proper process requirements. We effectively engineer optimal environments, and frequently update our knowledge and skills to develop and deliver state-of-the-art systems. Through teamwork, creativity, and cutting edge expertise, we develop appropriate solutions that balance performance against capital and operating costs.
Today’s buildings require an innovative approach to electrical engineering design. From the onset of a project to completion and occupancy, our team of engineers, architectural lighting specialists and technicians strive to incorporate environmental, social, and economic goals into our design ethos. From designing high voltage power to emergency generators we have the expertise that clients, stakeholders, and end users depend on to satisfy their buildings’ crucial everyday functions. Our clients rely on our expertise in energy pricing, operating costs, and the balance with capital costs to make the best long term decisions when it comes to electricity and power.
Our partners demand excellence in the way our projects and buildings function. We provide creative solutions to plumbing systems that are safe, reliable, and resilient. Designed to meet the needs of today and tomorrow, we ensure sanitary and storm systems within the buildings are optimized for performance and minimizing risks of water damage. To make the best decisions for our partners, we analyze capital cost, operating cost, reliability, and risk. With sustainability at the heart of everything we do, water efficiency is a priority, through more than low flow fixture, we can determine if water reuse and other sustainable options are appropriate for your project.
Alula Lighting Design offers lighting design consultancy services to meet clients’ needs and creative visions. We believe in a collaborative process with the design team to produce creative solutions that are functional, aesthetically pleasing, and integral to the architecture, while maintaining sensitivity to project budgets, schedule, code, and sustainability requirements. We design with understanding and expertise of the latest technology, trends, and methods in order to maximize creativity in providing architectural lighting solutions.
Understanding the role that technology plays in buildings today, and how it affects all disciplines, low-voltage (communication) building systems provide knowledgeable workers and building operators with the tools they need to excel in their marketplace. Voice, data, wireless, security, fire safety, access control, building automation, and multi-media systems are all essential elements of interactive building systems, and each must be tailored for today’s workforce. We design and document intelligent building systems to benefit the occupants as well as the building owners while counteracting technological obsolescence.
Our communications services offering includes Audiovisual (AV) Design, and have been in the forefront of design and specification of innovative Audiovisual (AV) systems for classrooms, boardrooms, training, conference and video teleconference rooms, television and radio studios, courtrooms, auditoria, theatres and many other special purpose spaces.

Security and Risk planning, design, and execution in modern facilities, demands specialized professionals who focus on comprehensive security design and risk mitigation. Global, national and local risks have become more unpredictable, unavoidable and potentially catastrophic. We understand that different types of facilities have unique operational and security requirements. We assist your organization in identifying security vulnerabilities and develop appropriate countermeasures to mitigate related risks. We work proactively with our clients to help them meet their challenges in a holistic manner that blends seamlessly into architectural design and ergonomic operations. Our security designs and recommendations are based on sound security industry experience and best practices.
Commissioning today’s complex and integrated systems is a crucial and cost effective process for sustainable practice guidelines, LEED, and certain new building regulations. Whether it be new building commissioning, existing building commissioning (retro-commissioning and re-commissioning), Building Envelope / Enclosure Commissioning, LEED Fundamental or Enhanced Commissioning, Mission Critical Commissioning, or compliance with ASHRAE and CSA guidelines, we implement quality processes that are carefully tailored to meet your project requirements, ensuring you have a trouble-free occupancy and an environment that meets your expectations. We offer this service through our dedicated group of HRCx professionals, who have extensive experience with diverse facility types and have developed processes based on recognized industry leading organizations.
The reduction of environmental impact from our buildings is our top most priority. This initiative involves implementing efficient design strategies, identifying the appropriate building systems, and engaging the entire project team to strive to obtain sustainable goals. With LEED Accredited Professionals, and a multitude of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified projects, we continue our commitment to reduce energy usage and financial implications through services such as Energy Modeling, Energy Audits, Energy Calculations, Incentive Management, Third Party Reviews, and Feasibility Studies for new and existing facilities.
