Design/Build capability is another aspect that sets FSA apart from it's
competitors. This ability incorporates an in-house capacity to take an owner
or developer's ideas and coordinate the necessary design of the HVAC system
for their project.
The system, which is offered and then reviewed by all parties involved
in the development, is then assured to provide the most efficient and complete
performance, to satisfy the needs and desires of the end user. This type
of project, once finalized, will insure full compliance with all applicable
codes and accepted design practices.
The plans can be stamped by a Licensed Engineer, and most important of
all, during the construction phase of the project, the actual designing
firm, is also the installing contractor. This guarantees that the installation
will satisfy the end user and that the entire system is installed and performs
as originally intended.
During the design/review, any special considerations are presented, and
if the owner would like to select specific items of equipment or maintain
unusual conditions, the coverage for those items is incorporated into the
design. This process helps eliminate the need for Change Orders during the
project, avoids delays due to equipment revisions, and prevents "Budget"
cost increases after job inception.
