With the right partner, professional consulting engineering creates healthier and more productive environments and facilities.
Our experts help you create more cost effective, flexible, reliable, and sustainable built environments. With the experience and expertise to navigate local and international building codes, our engineers can facilitate effective and efficient systems design.
Creating the best mechanical systems design starts with a full understanding of your organization’s desired outcomes. What are you looking for? Improved air quality? Optimized occupant comfort? Improved energy efficiency? Or perhaps your business requires operational integrity and resiliency. Our mechanical engineering experts offer design solutions and technical advice for a wide variety of functions, including:
We’ve come a long way from Ben Franklin’s kite and key experiment in a lightning storm. Today, electricity literally powers the world economy. Evolving electrical system design keeps everything– from communication and supercomputing to financial trading and logistics– buzzing. Whatever your electrical design needs, our electrical engineers offer technical expertise relative to reliability, resiliency, and flexibility for:
Arguably our most precious natural resource, water is the life blood of any building. And clean and efficient water systems are at the heart of these structures. Proper sanitation systems prevent disease and contribute to healthy environments. Our plumbing design and consulting services include incorporating domestic water supply, sanitation, and storm water systems into your facility’s design. Plumbing engineers at ESD offer design solutions and technical expertise for:
In Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, safety is cited as one of our most primal and basic human requirements for a happy and healthy life. Today’s advances in technology help building owners and managers meet that need with state-of-the-art systems and equipment. But these safety nets are only as good as their implementation and use. Properly designed and functioning fire protection, life safety, and fire alarm systems provide facility occupants, operators, and owners with a higher level of confidence that they are safe within their facilities.
Our technical specialists offer you peace of mind by providing expertise and design solutions for:

Very helpful bringing clarity to what the important issues are when evaluating pro’s and con’s of different mechanical systems and their ability to achieve reliably high levels of indoor air quality. Patience with owners and architects that sometimes take a little bit of time and repeated explanations to grasp a new idea.
Writing for Plumbing & Mechanical Engineer magazine, ESD Technical Director for Plumbing Engineering James Dipping presents a series of facts everyone—especially plumbing professionals—should know to keep water safe. (Read James Dipping’s latest column.)
Chicago is well on its way to achieving its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent of 1990 levels by 2050. A panel at this year’s Chicago Build Expo will examine how making older buildings more energy efficient can significantly advance this effort. (Learn more about the Build Chicago 2022 session.)
Our mission to improve society through the built environment is brought to life through our people. Engineering is at the core of this vision. Are you ready to make a difference?
