Energy Modelling

While cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions are considered in all our projects, we also offer energy-specific services depending on each project’s needs, including energy studies, commissioning services, and control optimization.

Fire Suppression

At Avalon, our primary focus is designing systems that meet the most stringent application of applicable codes while working closely with architects and owners to ensure that the aesthetic needs of the project are met.

We have had great success in meeting these goals for all building types, including post and beam, insulated concrete, wood and steel frame, and open construction.

Plumbing

Plumbing systems are often an overlooked and unglamourous portion of many of the projects we have worked on. However, these are essential systems that include all of the sanitary and storm sewer services, domestic water, natural gas, compressed air and almost any other system that requires pipework.

We pride ourselves in taking the time to design systems that will be effective, require little maintenance, and achieve sustainable design goals when possible.

HVAC

Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems are based on thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Our goal is to create comfortable climates with optimal air quality and increased energy efficiency. Our HVAC designs range from low to high-rise residential and mixed-use buildings, commercial and office spaces, hotels, restaurants, and more.
