Engineering Services when good is not good enough
The one constant facing facility managers, plant managers, and operations teams is the rate of change in the demands of our roles.
The primary focus of facility management used to be comfort and reliability supported by well-trained teams of operations and maintenance personnel.
Today we have corporate objectives on sustainability and regulatory pressures to reduce energy and carbon or face financial penalties. We may have a letter grade on the outside of the facility measuring our energy efficiency while we maintain aging assets and legacy technology.
Smith Engineering understands these challenges and offers a set of services developed specifically with your objectives in mind.
As an industry leader it is our responsibility to manage financial opportunities to fund your projects by applying rebates and incentives; and to examine new methodologies and tools for advanced asset and system optimization.

The optimization of an asset and entire system is a highly skilled service that Smith Engineering has developed to avoid black boxes and proprietary knowledge around your own assets.
The Smith Engineering solution starts with the individual optimization of an asset focusing on how to achieve its best efficiency operation.
The value of our asset optimization strategy is to leverage your existing automation systems with the best known information from the manufacturer submittals and performance curves to dial in your assets.
The second step is how to optimize the entire system in order to achieve the expected results of efficiency and reliability.
Smith Engineering’s fundamental services focus on the basics of how building systems are designed and how they operate.
