Helping clients achieve energy savings with proven sustainability management practices.
The design and construction industry is changing rapidly. First-cost pressures are rising while buildings are expected to perform better and be constructed of more sustainable materials - all while reducing the impacts of climate change.
Mason & Hanger sees opportunity in these economic and environmental imperatives and our professionals have embraced better ways of designing, commissioning, and operating facilities. Grounded in collaboration and extensive analysis, we apply the combined experience of our professionals to improve existing and new buildings to produce the next generation of high-performance facilities.
For new and existing facilities, it’s important to have a long-range plan for ensuring energy security and minimizing costs.
We work with our clients to evaluate multiple options for energy generation, distribution, and storage. These services allow clients to use their on-site generating assets to work for them year round to improve resilience and dramatically reduce energy costs.
Our experts can evaluate your facility’s energy consumption utilizing sophisticated analytical tools, providing you with comprehensive energy and water conservation measures (ECMs) to reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
We can assist owners, energy savings companies (ESCOs), and energy developers implement energy conservation measures (ECMs) and have worked with numerous energy savings companies to deliver successful performance contracts.
Our Building Sciences team provides analytical capabilities and expertise beyond the reach of standard design, helping our clients produce better performing buildings that are energy efficient, sustainable, and cost effective.
Whole building simulation begins at the conceptual design stage, optimizing building orientation and massing:
Our experts understand how to evaluate a building and building site for renewable energy systems applications. This includes detailed study into the optimization of energy and storage systems to maximize economic, emissions, and resilience benefits.
Water is increasingly becoming more scarce in many parts of the U.S. and the world. Additionally, there is a growing realization of the close interconnection between water use and energy production. Mason & Hanger treats water as a valuable resource and performs water studies to responsibly minimize consumption and minimize the impact of stormwater and wastewater on surrounding infrastructure.
Mason & Hanger has a team of building envelope experts that can assist with the analysis and design of envelope systems and also manage the entire building enclosure commissioning process. Our process begins with the owner’s project requirements, thorough design review, contractor submittal review, construction inspection, and development of the final system manual.
A client described Mason & Hanger's team as committed to delivering sustainability projects with sound, energy conservation principles. Our experts have applied sustainable management practices to hundreds of projects, guiding our clients through various strategies to obtain their goals, including achievement of certification in green-building rating systems like LEED, Green Globes, and others.
Our certified commissioning agents (CxAs) are professional engineers with specialized expertise in mechanical, electrical, plumbing, emergency power, lighting and daylight control systems, security, and fire protection systems.
Fees for design and construction of large facilities represent only a fraction of their lifetime cost. Operations and maintenance needs occur annually and are often underfunded. Mason & Hanger can assess the condition of your facilities and assist in budgetary planning for maintenance, repairs, and system replacement.
