Mechanical System Upgrades

Hire us to modernize your mechanical systems

When a building's HVAC and plumbing systems approach the end of their useful lives, it is often impractical to upgrade these critical systems all at once. Prism can act as a lead consultant in assessing the situation and helping to modernize your building's mechanical infrastructure, providing options for system improvements and then designing and managing the retrofit process. We have extensive experience dealing with most mechanical systems including chilled water, fan coil, constant volume/variable volume, dual duct, hot water, air distribution and plumbing systems.

An opportunity for energy saving and improved comfort

As well as enjoying improved building comfort and reduced risk of equipment breakdown, clients can expect to save energy, reduce maintenance costs and lower emissions. Prism's step-by-step proactive approach results in less disruption to tenants and a more manageable mechanical retrofit overall.
